#WOTW: Wear Bardot Like A Boss
The off-shoulder trend that everyone seems to be totally in love with has actually been around for a pretty long time now. A big fashion go-to back in the 50s and 60s, this style was famously pulled-off by Hollywood icon Brigitte Bardot, and hence was eventually called the ‘bardot’. Turning out to be her signature style, she usually paired it with denim bells, tousled hair and cat eyeliner, which became a classic trend internationally. How can we forget the classic ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ poster? The iconic off-shoulder black dress paired with a set of pearls worn by Audrey Hepburn became a sub-style within the off-shoulder category.
Lace, veiled, frilly, bell-sleeved, bodycon — bardots are currently all you see, whether you’re out for brunch or partying it up at a club. We’ve all seen the neckline being paired with chokers, which are now a little overdone, right? So why not try something different by wearing your ‘bardot’ with a thin scarf or with layered necklaces instead. If you want to go full-fledged 60s, then play around with bell-bottom jeans or a high-waisted skirt and cat-eye sunglasses.
Designed to show-off your shoulders and collarbone, the neckline has varied over the years to suit different fashion trends and has evolved from blouses and dresses to even lingerie and swimwear!
