I don’t know about you, but I feel we have been seeing the “Off the Shoulder” trend for what seems like forever now. Here we are 2ish years later since the trend resurfaced and shoulders are still going strong! In the winter months and all! Whether it’s off both shoulders, draped off one shoulder, or shoulder cut-outs…it’s been shoulder, shoulder, shoulder!
Here are 3 reasons why I’m still cool with the Off-the-Shoulder trend:
- It adds Interest – The silhouette simply changes things up a bit from the standard shoulder design. To me, style is all about changing things up anyway.
- It adds Femininity – There is just something about a woman’s shoulders that represents beauty in one of the most feminine ways. At times I like to balance the feminine affect by styling off the shoulder pieces with something a little more edgy. But that’s me.
- It adds Strength – Our shoulders contribute to carrying A LOT of “stuff”! Whether it’s a diaper bag, child, groceries, or just the everyday stresses of life – this body part carries it all. Why wouldn’t we give shoulders center stage every now and then? They definitely deserve it!
For me a garment that encompasses interest, feminine beauty, and strength all in one reflects a pretty powerful statement!
What about you guys? Are you still thriving in the off the shoulder band wagon? How do you like to style yours? I would love to hear about it in the comments below. I hope you all have a blessed rest of your week.
