If the openings are not overly done, it can look attractive, especially if the garment is well made with a flattering fit. But, what I am seeing is very cheaply made tops with the cold shoulder, and they don't work well. And, I agree that there is too much of this look out there.
I keep running into the ones with slashed sleeves, all the way down from shoulder to elbow or wrist (like a single vertical slash, not horizontal ones running down the arm), and it doesn't work on me.

My feelings exactly. No offense to anyone who likes that look, but on most women I don't think it looks very classy.

I shop at Chico's a lot and you would be hard pressed to find many tops without the "cold shoulder" look. I hate when a trend saturates all the clothing stores. I don't love the skinny pants look either but that's all I see when I go shopping. The only good thing about them is I don't have to hem my pants as often.

I must be REALLY trashy because I wear them with skinny jeans and high heels!

You voiced what bothers me about the look . . . the style looks cheap and unsophisticated. Even when the cold-shoulder shirt is expensive, it never looks it.

I think if the style was changed to where the openings went all the way down the arm, it would look more stylish and pretty. I would wear something like that.

A friend of mine was wearing a cold shoulder blouse at Easter dinner. I love her to pieces because she is the kindest person I ever met.

We can't help our reactions to trends, but it's no reflection on her as a person.
