As you might have noticed, the off-the-shoulder trend has some serious longevity to it. My first post about the trend was way back in 2015!! You can see it HERE.
Over the past year, I think most women I know have invested in some sort of “off-the-shoulder” style to add to their regular fashion rotation. More recently, you’ve probably seen an abundance of off-the-shoulder knitwear more appropriate for the fall and winter ahead.
(All hail, sweater weather!)
Some trends can be “one + done” — meaning you wear that style one specific way and that’s pretty much it. However, the longer the off-the-shoulder trend is going strong, the more I recognize its fashion possibilities.
Here are 2 fresh ways to style the off-the-shoulder sweater that you might not have considered before — at least, I didn’t!
Layered Over A Button Down Shirt
This is not exactly a pairing that I ever considered before I came across this street style image. The peek of collar and cuff from under the off-the-shoulder style is exactly the detail that makes this look stand out. Also, take note — it’s OK to mix and match different shades of white/cream/brown. That specific question comes up a lot during my styling sessions and as you can see from the image above, all those neutral shades look lovely worn together.
With A Slip Dress
I’ve already declared my LOVE FOR THE SLIP DRESS, but how pretty is this date-night ready look? I love how it’s both sexy, yet practical for cooler temperatures. The off-the-shoulder sweater also adds a little bit more coverage for those of you concerned about showing too much skin. Swap out the VELVET HEELS for a BALLET FLAT or LOAFER and this becomes a day-time appropriate chic look!
