With a shift in temperatures comes a new approach to dressing. Those summer trends we loved are by now fading with our tans, been pushed to the back of our closet, and we’ve moved on to newer (and warmer) things. One trend we all tried and loved over the summer months was the oh-so-romantic off-shoulder look. Whether in be on a dress or flowy chiffon top paired with our favorite high-rise shorts, it was a winner. But how to pull off the sweet look now that winter is upon us? Let me introduce you to its cold-weather sister: the cold shoulder silhouette!

Just as flirty and feminine, this alternative to an off-shoulder look is much more practical for this time of year. Giving you a little extra coverage, but still daring to bare some skin, it’s sure to satisfy your off-shoulder withdrawls. To keep the look feeling fresh and charming, opt for a top with frills or florals, such as this one by J.O.A. The subtle nuances of spring take us back to our days frolicking at the beach, but in a much more appropriate way for the seasons on the horizon. Pair the top with loose-fitting trousers, such as these, and keep accessories simple. Let your shoulders do the talking (and flirting)!

Craving a cozier look? Not to worry! The cold-shoulder trend does cabin-chic just as elegantly as it does work-week wear. Juxtapose your chunky knit (one like this) with a textured leather mini and your favorite over the knee boots. The two marry perfectly together to create the ultimate cozy yet elevated look for any holiday party or event on your calendar this season!
