Tricky Trends – Bardot or Bardon’t?

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).
