HOW TO STYLE THE BARDOT

Sun’s out, shoulder’s out is the style motto this spring as the fashion pack go bananas for the Bardot. Meet the dresses and tops to work the neckline of the season….

WARDROBE ICON

Named after the iconic Brigitte and her penchant for off-the-shoulder styles, the Bardot neckline is having a moment right now. Along with Brigitte, Grace Kelly and Lucille Ball loved the décolletage-enhancing powers of an off-the-shoulder neckline, cementing the Bardot as the epitome of elegance. When you want to show a subtle hint of skin but aren’t into tummy-baring tops or back-exposing dresses, look no further than the insouciantly sexy Bardot.

FASHION FAVOURITE

Spotted on the Emanuel Ungaro, J.W. Anderson and Saint Laurent SS18 catwalks, the Bardot neckline is big news among the celebs this season too, on and off the red carpet. Emma Roberts proves classic denim is the perfect match for a white cotton Bardot and Nicky Hilton sexes up her striped Bardot top with a slinky pencil skirt – great for going from desk to dinner. Steal a style tip from Lucy Mecklenburgh and belt Bardot dresses to balance out the neckline – it’ll make your waist look mini.

A grown-up take on flashing the flesh, the Bardot neckline is the cool woman’s way to do sexy.

THE BARDOT TOP

The easiest way to work the Bardot trend into your wardrobe is with the classic off-the-shoulder top. Nothing says summer like crisp white cotton and a Bardot neckline, and our top scores extra points for embroidery – add jeans and sunnies and you’ve got a new warm weather uniform. Ticking off two mega trends in one, our scarlet Bardot is the sexy way to work spring polka dots – go extra sassy with leather-look leggings. Worried about shoulder slippage? Don’t be; both tops have been designed with elasticated necklines to eliminate that feeling of constantly falling down. Perfect for day or night, our black and red striped jersey Bardot offers a more fitted option that looks super sexy tucked into a leather pencil skirt.

THE BARDOT DRESS

Want a summer dress that shows off collarbones and shoulders while keeping upper arms covered? You got it. An on-point gingham print is the cherry on top. Style it with our statement green sling backs in the city then switch to sandals and accessorise with a straw bag on holiday. Bold red and black refreshes the staple Bardot for spring – a colour combo that makes horizontal stripes super flattering. A leather biker jacket and cat eye sunglasses will up the cool factor, while crisp white kicks and a denim jacket create a killer weekend look.
