The cold shoulder

It seems like everyone is wearing this popular summer sleeve in some variation.
There are so many styles to choose from
it's easy to find one that suits, if you like the trend.
I found the short sleeve version seems to work best for me,
the longer 3/4 and full length sleeves seem to swallow up my small frame.

Don't forget your sunblock when wearing this style,
or you may end up with very warm and sunburned shoulders!

First, a floral print A-line cold shoulder dress.
This style, with the thin and sheer off-the-shoulder ruffle is pretty versatile,
 since it is actually layerable.   
I wore this dress earlier in the season with a forest green cardigan over it.

Worn here with a fuchsia bag with gold tone earrings and cuff bracelet

Neutral pointed toe gladiator lace up flats to finish

This cold shoulder top is made of pink shirting fabric 
with a ruffle across the bodice that extends into sleeves.
Worn with a favorite circle print straight skirt that I have loved for many years.

1960's pink patent clutch
and circular silver tone jewelry to follow the circle theme

Tan suede wedge lace up espadrilles to finish 

This last casual look is made up of a bright rosey pink cropped blouse 
with ruffled short cold shoulder sleeves 

Worn with a pink and white gingham handle bag
and a sea inspired star fish necklace and dolphin bracelet

Denim wedge peep toe lace ups to finish.
I think these are cute, but not very comfortable for me.
  They will probably be consigned before the season is up!

Any tips you have found helpful in wearing the cold shoulder style?
