I have always loved off the shoulder tops. I can remember having some beautiful ones in my 20s; that I wore every summer. I think I must have realised that it flattered my “pear shaped” figure. Not that I had heard of a woman’s body being compared to a fruit back then.
Some things definitely change and one of them is the shape of our bodies as we get older; the proliferation of those pesky wrinkles and certain muscles that have given up holding things together.
Luckily our shoulders seem to be immune from the above and can be an area that we can still continue to expose without looking too mutton. At least that is my opinion. As these tops are called “Bardot” I simply have to take mine with me on my next trip to St. Tropez. The one I am wearing is cotton by Whistles. This is now sold out however they are now offering a similar one in linen. I am looking forward to wearing mine on balmy evenings in the South of France.
