Are Cold Shoulder Tops Still in Style in 2022?

Cold Shoulder Tops have been a popular trend in the last few years because they add a subtle sexiness to a casual summer outfit. I’ve recently had a few emails asking if cold shoulder tops are still in style in 2022?

The answer is yes! While it is true that women’s cold shoulder tops have peaked, they have managed to hold their own and still look fabulous for spring and summer. Here are a few I found that stand out.



Cold Shoulder Top- Pink Floral

1. Floral Cold Shoulder Top

Cold shoulder tops tend to fall into one of two camps:  sleek and edgy, or soft and romantic, like this pretty one I’m showing above. The mix of painterly florals, soft pastel colors, and breezy chiffon fabric make this cold shoulder top ultra-feminine.

For a modern look, pair this sweet top with something a little more rugged, like these faded jeans with the raw edge step hem. Braided mules enhance the boho vibe. A slouchy bag with gold chain detail makes it Haute Hippie. Don’t forget some dangly earrings to play up the cold shoulder detail.

2. Ruffle Sleeve Cold Shoulder Top

Here’s a top that is sure to wow. This dainty green cold shoulder top with the lovely swiss dot texture is a tribute to spring! Bright colors like this are trending this season, but you can get too much of a good thing. The best way to style such a bright hue is by using neutrals as a backdrop.

Add your favorite jeans, and then accent with soft white. A simple mule, a beautiful white bag, and some pearlized white earrings balance the bright green and keep it look gorgeous, not flashy.

Cold Shoulder Top - Yellow

3. Keyhole Neckline Cold Shoulder Top

Say Hello to yellow this spring. Bright yellow clothing is having a moment, and one of the loveliest pieces I have seen is this pretty yellow print top. This sunny cold shoulder top has a high halter neckline and chic keyhole neckline. I love it with white jeans a touch of blush ( bag and earrings) to keep the look soft and pretty.

You could go with blush sandals, but that would look pretty matchy. Blush would also shorten your legs a little compared to the off-white sandals, create a continuous visual flow, and make your legs look longer.

4. Long Sleeve Cold Shoulder Top

I’m always getting asked about long sleeves in summer, and here is the perfect top. This gorgeous cold shoulder blouse gives you the arm coverage you crave but keeps you cool with its ruffled shoulder cutouts. Pair it with flare jeans and taupe accessories for a casual but classy look. The v-neckline is a beautiful touch and is always flattering, especially if you are big-busted.

  1. Really don’t understand why these cold-shoulder tops are popular. To me, they look sloppy, show an odd part of the body and look unflattering on everyone.

  2. I really don’t like them much but good to have to stay cool if you don’t like your upper arms but have good shoulders. They can hide that aging thing under your underarms. Some fashion bloggers say these tops are out and I haven’t seen any in the stores so far.

  3. My friend called cold-shoulders “covid vaccine tops”, cuz they make it easy to get your vaccination :-)

      1. Love your site, Deborah. I went out and got three new pair of long shorts this week after reading about them here :-)

  4. I’m glad you posted this. I’ve been wondering the same. My take is that they are now a little dated, but can still be worn another season or two before they look completely dated. I actually just purchased one from Old Navy, a blue tropical floral. I think it’s such a pretty look, I wish it was here to stay.
