One of this summer’s biggest trends has been the comeback of off-the-shoulder tops! This trend hit spring fashion week last season and has skyrocketed in popularity ever since. Although this trend was featured in last season’s runway shows is it still apparent in fall 2016 collections.
This trend can be seen in the J. Mendel fall 2016 couture collection, which features numerous off-the-shoulder pieces. The collection features many ways to take your off-the-shoulder clothing into the upcoming fall weather. I drew inspiration from the darker off-the-shoulder pieces featured in the collection when creating my look.
I centered my look off my favorite off-the-shoulder top. The pattern in the top features both black, white and gray. These colors are perfect for creating an edgy summer look or even wearing during the fall. To match the black in the top I paired it with black cutoff denim shorts. To continue the use of the black throughout the outfit I added a pair of black lace-up gladiator sandals.
To accessorize this outfit I added several silver bangles from Alex and Ani. These bangles are perfect to throw on with any outfit, not to mention that each one has a special meaning to me personally. In addition to the bangles, I wore my favorite summer accessory my sunglasses. I have worn these mirrored sunglasses every day of summer break so far, they look amazing with every outfit and truly are the perfect summer accessory. In this outfit, they bring out the edgy vibe created by the off-the-shoulder top. No matter how you wear your off-the-shoulder-top they make a comfortable yet chic outfit every time.
