5 Under $50: The Cold Shoulder

Cut-out sleeves might be called "cold-shoulder" but the glimpse of skin they reveal is anything but frigid. Whether bohemian like Kate Bosworth or demure like Olivia Palermo, the right cold-shoulder dress or top is the perfect way to show your sultry side this summer. Here are 5 of my top picks under $50:

1. Basic white goes with everything from neon skinnies to colorful skirts.

2. This long sleeve shirt is seductive yet subdued with a rocker chic vibe.

3. A swinging silhouette packs a punch in bright orange (shown), green or yellow.

4. This fuchsia dress strikes a perfect balance between sexy and sweet.

5. Make a bold graphic statement with a stripe top and unexpected open-shoulders.

If you've spotted an amazing cold shoulder top elsewhere, let me know in the comments!

I know you're talking about the shoulderless tops but I was distracted by that cute colored tote in that second photo up above!
