Just a look at your favorite celebs and the latest television or Bollywood trends – and you are sure to spot the rising love for this style.

Whether it’s the avid fashion lover Sonam Kapoor, television’s favorite bahu Anika or the just-arrived Badrinath ki Dulhaniya – every fashionista can be seen sporting this fabulous style. The fashion-forward ensembles in the film Badrinath ki Dulhaniya have already created quite a stir. The film’s posters are a proof that this Dulhaniya is hooked onto the cold shoulder blouses! The peppy, pretty dulhaniya Alia Bhatt – in her real life – was also spotted sporting this trend, during the film’s promotions as well as for one of her famous (glittery grey-silver saree at Ambani party)) ethnic appearances.

With the size zero and extreme thinness obsession, finally and thankfully, fading – the women are no longer scared to show off their womanly curves. Happily, the focus is now zoomed on toned, athletic and statuesque shoulders/ arms. The trend of cut-out shoulders, cold shoulder designs, off-shoulder style and shoulder-baring designs is on a high!
