Shoulder straps that feature a tie are one of the signature hallmarks of my design style. Not only do they impart a romantic and feminine attitude to a top or dress they highlight one of the most underrated yet sensual parts of the female body - the shoulder. Think about it - you never gain weight in your shoulders, they usually have a bit of color from being in the sun and having a bow tie detail on your shoulder draws attention up towards your face. All in all, this is one flattering detail. If you needed more reasons to get on board with shoulder ties, they also enable you to adjust the fit of your straps.
As mentioned above, a shoulder tie detail is a favorite of mine and included on many of my designs for Magill that are available now for purchase including the Mina Dress, the Astor Tank and the Celia Dress. I’ve also rounded up some tops from other designers, available this spring.
