You saw your col­leagues wear­ing them, your BFF’s wardrobe was full of the style and you just couldn’t help your­self when you added it to your e-cart. The off­shoul­der was a must-have last sea­son. But, is it just that? So last sea­son? While Bol­ly­wood celebs still cham­pion it, ex­perts are di­vided. Out of fash­ion? Not at all! “When the trend in question works like a charm on ev­ery body type, sexy with­out be­ing overtly so and show­ing off the slimmest part of you, whatever your size, its dif­fi­cult to say good­bye!” says de­signer Ki­ran Jais­ing­hani. “The Bar­dot trend hit the scene in a big way and con­tin­ues to be a favourite glob­ally. This is all be­cause of its ver­sa­til­ity and ap­peal, es­pe­cially as a street style sta­ple,” says de­signer Leena Singh. Don’t be a clone, re-imag­ine: “I’m per­son­ally not a big fan of this trend. It’s ev­ery­where and ev­ery­one has started to look a bit like each other’s clones. I hope to see more in­di­vid­u­al­ity in the way peo­ple dress,” says de­signer Rimzim Dadu. Clos­ing com­ments? “I think we will be see­ing this trend around for a while, but maybe with some kind of lay­er­ing or in a not ul­tra-fem­i­nine sort of way. The trend has reached its peak re­ally, but we may see it phas­ing out over­time,”adds Jais­ing­hani. Let’s just say, don’t throw the Bar­dots out...yet!
