Ritika Taneja, Director and Business Head - Fashion, ShopClues, and Tanvi Malik, Co-founder FabAlley, have decoded the fashion of statement shoulders. 
* Cold shoulder: The best part about these tops is that they suit almost any body type. These tops look great with skinny trousers, shorts skirts and palazzos, so you can try out a range of styles as per the occasion. But ensure that you have neutral bottoms, so that they don't steal the attention from the top. Avoid statement necklaces or layered neck pieces, but statement earrings and stacked bangles can work well.
For a bohemian vibe, one can incorporate this style with oxidized jewellery, flat sandals with straps and frilled sling bags.
* Off shoulder: Whether you choose an off-shoulder top or a dress, pick a thick waist contrast belt that clinches at the waist. Match this with a pair of black pumps, statement neckpiece, clutch and get ready to kill it in style. 
* Asymmetrical shoulder: To keep a balance between shoulders and minimal on the bottom, maxi skirts does the trick when combined with asymmetrical shoulder. Try a solid coloured asymmetrical top with a pattern maxi skirt. Accessorise it with a metallic watch, aviators, neutral tote and flat sandals to finish off the look.
* One shoulder: For a glamorous party look, one shoulder styles are a total win-win. Be it jewellery or make-up, going minimalist works wonders while styling this trend.
