Give Summer Heat the Cold Shoulder

There is no denying it. We’ve arrived at that time of the year where we run from our cars to the nearest indoor location seeking ice-cold AC. However we have a more fashionable way to beat the heat: give it the cold shoulder.

The cold shoulder trend keeps shoulders exposed and it couldn’t be more perfect for Miami as it allows some ventilation and whole lot of style. Just like we are seeking spots to cool off, we sought out some cold shoulder options to add to your wardrobe.

Play peek-a-boo with Alice & Olivia’s Gia Blouse, a gorgeous green top with cutouts at the shoulders and ruffled detailing.  Pair Gia with slacks, jeans, shorts, or a skirt and have endless options for day and night. 


Another top from Alice & Olivia that we love for cooler nights or for summer travel is the Cold Shoulder Crop Sweater. This cropped top in a comfy cashmere-blend begs to be worn thanks to its softness and looks great with an asymmetrical skirt.  If you’re looking to reveal just a hint of skin then Marni’s Acetate Shirt with Bare Shoulder could be your blouse of choice.

Flowing, fresh and floral, Tory Burch’s Shasta dress in fine chiffon is the perfect alternative to any type of pants because, let’s be honest, you feel like prisoner in them during the suffocating summer humidity. For more formal affairs, Max Mara Crepe Satin Dress in opaque crêpe features a waist slimming belt in the same shiny fabric.
