Classic beauty attracts attention in the slightest approach into a professional forum. For decades, a suit blazer has transformed a woman’s wardrobe for an entrance into a male-dominated world. While women concealed their breast to blend into the professional male culture, others find a method of ‘shoulder robing’ to fit both worlds. A verb, which best defines wearing a jacket without placing your arms through the sleeves, but instead resting the specific garment on your shoulders. A similar approach to shoulder robing is known as a cape.
Shoulder robing has added a sense of nonchalant style while providing an option to one’s garment with a combined coverage. One of the earliest purveyors of a lady-like silhouette was portrayed in Niagara, 1953 by Marilyn Monroe. The diverse actress displayed the established 1950’s silhouette that consisted of a wrapped midi-skirt, silk chemise along with a muted grey shoulder-robed jacket.
