The off-the-shoulder top, otherwise known as a Bardot top, is fast becoming a wardrobe essential. The Bardot style is taking off once again and has now taken over playsuits, jumpsuits and dresses also. This easy-to-wear off the shoulder style neckline is perfect for the upcoming summer sunshine (if it ever arrives) along with looking classy for a night out.
This look is flirty and flattering without being attention-grabbing, showing enough skin without it being too revealing. Sexy meets sweet in this style and although the bra situation can be a problem, it is totally worth it and suitable for almost every occasion.
With the warmer weather beginning, these casual Bardot tops are perfect. Without showing too much flesh in the daytime, they look elegant and can be worn with a variety of jeans or a cute skirt. Why not also try a striped Bardot top under a denim dungaree dress?

Lace is a definite go to when it comes to evening wear. It is classy and adds just the right amount of detail to an outfit. Worn with trousers or a skirt, the lace material can also dress up an outfit, meaning it takes less effort to look just as good. A cut out Bardot adds a sexier look to an outfit, definitely to be worn at night.
