OPEN | SHOULDERS

October 3, 2016

We all loved the off the shoulder trend that came this spring and summer. But now that fall is in full effect do we see this trend going away? NO! Luckily for all of us who probably invested in one too many off the shoulder tops and dresses last season, we can still wear them, layer them, and strut them this fall as the fashion forecast as them hotter than ever.

If the bareness of a complete off the shoulder top is too much to handle as the temperatures dip, you can still sport the trend with shoulder cut outs like this top from Bebe. This dreamy, ruffled, open shoulder top with metal accent is a perfect day to night blouse. It can be styled in so many ways with jeans like I wore here, or with leather pants, a skirt, and shorts.

To keep consistent with the sheer, airy top, I added a lightweight trench with this look. This trench features an open front and draped collar and is made of the same georgette material as the blouse. Draped or worn over this look adds a beautiful flow and balance to this overall look.

Top | Bebe similar styles here, here, here, and here
Jeans | Blank Denim similar styles here, here, and here
Jacket | Bebe similar styles here, here and here
Shoes | Christian Louboutin similar styles here, here, here, and here
Bag | Camelia Roma similar styles here, here, here, and here

I love the off shoulder top from Bebe! It really accentuates your shoulders and the ruffles add the extra dash of femininity!

I totally agree, as long as weather doesn’t prohibit it, show those shoulders! πŸ™‚ Over here it’s too cold for that already, but you can keep rocking that style for a while longer!
You look stunning by the way! πŸ™‚

Luckily I live in SoCal which doesn’t drop too much in temperature. I can bare these shoulders just a bit longer. =) Hope you had a nice weekend Thomas!

I love off shoulder tops very much too. Lucky for us living in CA and TX, we don’t get too cold in fall/winter, we can still rock this trend. Those ruffles are so pretty too.

Keeping up with great style, Christine!

I think, I’m one of the few girls who aren’t that much into off shoulder. I actually do not even have a single off shoulder top … But I really like this trend on other’s and your outfit with that flowing blouse really is gorgeous!

I actually wasn’t an off the shoulder type of girl before either, but this is something that works because it doesn’t bare it all, just a little cold shoulder. =)

Thank you Iga! I wasn’t a fan of the loose fitting jeans until recently and now I can’t go back. They are much more forgiving than skinny jeans and more comfy too!

Thank you Kreshma. Black is one of my favorite colors to wear but there are so many different styles and structures of black clothes and it’s fun to show the different ways you can wear a simple black top!

It’s a good transition from off the shoulder to showing a little bit of shoulder right? Thanks for all your support babe!
