From pretty tops with voluminous, ruffled sleeves (a fave of Olivia Palermo) to glam gowns, like the ones Lily-Rose Depp and Julia Roberts recently wore to the Cannes Film Festival, it seems exposed shoulders are the latest (and chicest) way to show some skin. And unlike abs, shoulders always look good. So yes, you can skip a cardio class or two—simply dab an illuminating body lotion on those sexy clavicles, and you’re prepped to wear this summer’s hottest trend.

Show Off Your Sexy Shoulders

Exposing your shoulders will give you an air of provocation without really revealing anything. That’s why we love this trend so much. If you opt for this style, you may decide to use a translucent body shimmer to accent the key areas. Apply with an oversized blush brush for easy application. The best way to maximize a shimmery, powdery base is to first moisturize the deltoids, shoulders, upper arms and décolletage. Next, swirl some of the sparkles into the palm of your hand or the lid of your body shimmer container. Apply in a circular motion to your bare shoulders with your brush and prepare to subtly catch the light. Reading on to find out why soft shoulders drive men wild:

Exposed shoulders

One-shoulder dresses, off-the-shoulder tops, strapless frocks. Men love to see a bit of shoulder, which are a very sexy area in a woman, and also a bit of the back. It is a very simple way to look sexy without risking going into vulgarity.
