There’s a Good Reason Why Cold-Shoulder Tops Are Making a Comeback
What’s not to love about Dolly Parton? The singer/actress/philanthropist is an icon in every sense of the word. And leave it to Dolly to bring back an old trend. We’re talking about cold-shoulder tops.
The living legend wore a shoulder-baring number to get the Moderna vaccine she helped develop with her own money. Frankly, it’s genius. Even if you rock a tee to get your shot, you may still have to roll up your sleeve. But with cold-shoulder tops, there’s easy access to that sweet spot where the vaccine needs to go.
Good thing there are plenty of options for the fashion-minded. If your appointment is sooner rather than later, you can add an arm-exposing sweater to your cold-weather lineup. If you’re not scheduled till later in spring, you can invest in a crop top or a lightweight blouse. Some picks show both shoulders, others favor one side. Plus, you can still sport these items long after your second dose. (Even next fall.)
