The ‘shoulder’ tends to re-surface now and then as fashion trend. Dropped shoulders, off the shoulder, ‘boob tube’ – I’m personally a little partial to the hint of clavicle and bare shoulders. It reminds me of a carefree summer, the warmth of a hot beach vacation and sultry evenings in mediterranean towns.
In an interview with women about the body parts of males they most loved, the shoulder topped the list. Well-defined, broad shoulders are adored because they are a sign of strength and masculinity. For us women, after a day of carrying around bags and books and children, a kiss in between the shoulder blades, perhaps one of the less likely erogenous zones, is a wonderful appreciation of ourselves (and our day) and a lot of loving attention from a very small action.
This dress is a true favourite. I think all fashion blogs should showcase their favourite pieces again and again: this dress already two years old and it comes out every summer. With just a hint of shoulder, I love the layering in this piece. I just need the vacation plan to match it
