Despite the cold weather coming our way, this new trend involves showing off a little bit of skin. A major trend for the fall 2017 season is the one shoulder where a top will show a classy amount of shoulder. I personally think this look could be sophisticated yet casual at the same time. Here are a few outfits that you can style after if you dare to rock that shoulder.
This is one of my favorite outfits for just a day out or when you don’t want to wear Nike shorts to class anymore. I love this simple white top and cut off as it gives a laid back look. I added Adidas shoes for comfort and to give it some edge.
Of course, I cannot do a trend without having a sexy outfit! I love this bodycon one sleeve top with a choker built in. With it being a high neck top I would style it with a ponytail. My favorite fall color is burgundy so I wanted to incorporate it a little bit as well as a few gold accents. My styling tip is to try to match your shoes with your bag so the outfit is not all over the place!
When I first saw this top I was absolutely in love! Since the top had a lot going on I wanted to style it with plain bottoms, so I added some culottes and some nude heels. Since there was not a lot of color to the outfit, I added the colorful clutch to give it more of a fun twist to it. This outfit is great if you’re going to a function, it’s sophisticated yet fun!
I wanted to create another casual outfit so I found this gingham print dress which is so adorable! I am a minimalistic dresser so I just added a sweet necklace and some white, lace up espadrilles. This is an outfit you can wear to a picnic or just to walk around a city (especially in Europe). Since the straw bag was rather popular in the summer I thought it would make the look more laid back.
I absolutely love this dress! If you have stayed with me these past few years I have been a huge fan of lace! The cut cutouts in the middle make the dress a little bit sexy and make me which I had the body and the place to wear this to! I love a good smokey eye and tousled hair to give it a relaxed look to it.
Remember that trends may come and go but always stay true to your original style. I hope you have fun with this trend and I hope to see you in my next post! I am so glad to be back!
Trends tend to come and go just like the weather. We can either conform to the status of each new trend or try to ignore it, which is sometimes hard. One trend that I am unsure about is Culottes. This trend was big around the mid-1900’s but is making a big come back with celebrities and bloggers such as Kelly Ripa and Danielle Bernstein.
My mother and I talked about this new trend being ‘hard to understand’. My mom and I are petite people and sometimes not every trend would fit our body type. But it seems like only certain body types can look flattering in culottes. Kelly Ripa is not considered tall but she is skinny and athletic that unlike me, it would look like awkward, loose yoga pants rather than an actual piece of clothing I could wear to school.
The picture above shows an ideal way of pairing these new type of pants, but I feel like they would look unflattering. I feel awkward in flared jeans unsure how to pair shoes along with my ankles looking skinny.
I personally believe that this trend will not help me with my size and body type. However, it is a trend that is taking over the blogger world, I just have to deal with it. If this trend makes you feel confident, please wear them just this is my opinion based on who I am.
