When it comes to shoulders in women’s clothing this season, think big, think 80s soap opera Dallas, think sparkle – and you might just have the latest style sussed. Shoulder pads are back but with extra oomph this season – we’ve seen the catwalk shows, we’ve trawled the UK high street, but the best shoulder details we’ve seen are in clothes shops online. Here is our guide to how to seize the latest style and look hot for the rest of summer.
Ruffle shoulder jersey
If frills and pleats are your favourite texture, we think you’ll love the Rare Ruffle Shoulder Jersey from online clothes shop Get The Label. This stunning dress comes in grey marl which is a great colour to make the summer to autumn transition. It features built-in shoulder pads with dramatic ruffle detail and includes delicate tie detailing at the back. Keep your accessories plain to pull off this great look.
Marl puff shoulder detail jumper
Maybe you prefer puffs, in which case you’ll be delighted with the Marl Puff Shoulder Detail Jumper which is available from House of Fraser’s online clothes shop. This top comes in a rustic pumpkin colour which is ideal for the end of summer harvest season. This jumper features a scooped neck with knitted detailing to the shoulders and is a more subtle way to do shoulders this season, especially when teamed with black trousers for the office. Plus with a touch of angora it’s soft on the skin for added luxury.
Updated little black dresses
You can even update your little black dress this season too. We love the Motel Beth Shoulder Detail Dress which is also available from House of Fraser. This classic dress features a clean, crisp cut while blue lace detailing to the shoulders gives it a modern edge. A deep v-shaped back shows a little flesh for sophisticated sex appeal. Another option is the Bella Sequin Shoulder Dress from online clothes shop boohoo.com. This little black dress features sparkling gold and black sequin detail to the shoulders while the mesh back gives it a glam rock feel.
Micoda Shoulder Detail Top
If you’re looking for something a little more casual, take a look at the Micoda Shoulder Detail Top from designer clothes shop online Ted Baker. This simple grey t-shirt is brought to life with dramatic shoulder embellishments in a contrasting cream colour. This t-shirt looks great teamed with jeans and pumps for a relaxed day look.
