Lipsy loves: Bold Shoulders!
Mon 12 Oct 2009
You'd have to have been living on another planet for the last few months to still be in the dark about the statement shoulder trend. Along with sequins it is THE top trend of AW09. Having emerged when top-name designers Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and D&G looked to the eighties for inspiration, statement shoulders have been adopted by such style icons as Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, Blake Lively and Kate Moss.
Subtler than 80's power dressing pads, today's structured shoulders are all about creating drama with delicate detailing and futuristic designs. And best of all, the architectural silhouettes make waists look tiny by comparison!
Try our studded shoulder dress, asymmetric zip shift dress or backless glitter dress for a Lipsy take on the trend. Hit two trends in one with the sequin futuristic dress or v neck sequin dress in the style of Blake Lively. Or add drama to any outfit with this season's must have item, the military tux jacket.
