To Bardot or Bardon’t…that is the EGL Question of the Day! On second thought, we think that the real question is, do you even know what “Bardot” means? The Bardot is a garment that has a neckline or sleeves that leave the shoulders bare. It was coined Bardot after the French actress and style icon, Brigitte Bardot (seen below).
