The cut-out shoulder is a big trend in the glamour circles this summer. Right from ­fashion brands to flea ­markets, these stylish cuts are ruling the racks in the city.

Bollywood has also given it a thumbs-up, with actors Sonakshi Sinha, Nargis Fakhri and

Deepika Padukone

rocking the style.

Designer Payal Singhal, whose outfit with cut-out shoulders was recently seen on Nargis, says, "The style is very 80s inspired. It’s now a major ­international trend and can be worn with high-waisted


, denims and even dresses. The trend is summer-friendly and it’s cool without being overtly sexy."

Designer Gaurav Gupta explains why the trend has caught on. "This is the time and age for experimenting, and new silhouettes are coming up everyday. Cut-out shoulders are one such example. Shoulders are a very beautiful part of a woman’s body and the cut-outs expose them very well," he says.

Meanwhile, shopkeepers in Janpath and Sarojini Nagar markets are also cashing in on the trend. "Cut-out shoulder waale T-shirts aur dresses aajkal bahut demand mein hain. Humare paas desi aur foreign dono brands hain," says Raju Nath, a ­shopkeeper at Sarojini Nagar market.
