Cold shoulders Spring 2012
As we all know, Spring weather can be unpredictable – which makes getting dressed in the morning a little tricky. But there is a trend that I’m seeing a lot of this Spring that seems to make sense (if you aren’t planning on rushing from place to place). Jackets draped over the shoulders – perfect for those days when you’re not in need of complete warmth of a jacket, but want one with for later.
I love this look – classic and polished, yet cool and nonchalant. This season we’re seeing all sorts of jackets draped over the shoulders; leather biker jackets, pea coats and blazers paired with skinny denim, tuxedo pants and even shorts. Think of it as a trendy version of something great aunt Eleanore might wear. And for those of you who love layering – this is the perfect way to add another layer of dimension to your outfit.
Yes, this trend looks cool – but it can be a little fussy (there’s an awkward balancing act that goes on with your shoulders). Try out this trend while strolling around town, and be sure to carry a clutch or top handle bag – a bag with a long strap will just get in the way.
