Cold Shoulder Tops Have To Stop

October 3, 2018

Gina Crash

I wore a cold shoulder top to work today and regretted it immediately. When both of my bra straps fell down while driving, I realized I forgot to wear a strapless bra with this poorly designed top and the straps would show all day as you can see in the photo. If you don't know already, a cold shoulder top is a top with bare shoulders. They call it that since everything else is covered, your shoulders might get cold. I rarely get compliments when I wear them.

I own two of these terrible tops and I was talked into both of them by overly enthusiastic sales clerks promising a "flattering silhouette," when really they are anything but flattering. When is this trend going away? It's been several years now and the design shows no sign of stopping. My friend Erica pointed out to me they even sell kids cold shoulder tops. Kids are the last customers who have to worry about covering anything up yet. There's probably a fashionista reading this shouting, "That trend is already over, Gina!" Oh good. Nothing would make me happier!

Am I the only one who feels this way? Take our Twitter poll:


I can't wait to go home and change my shirt!
