Off the shoulder/ Cold Shoulder Trend - SS16 - How to wear

One of the SS16 trends currently flying high in the fashion charts is the cold shoulder and I am loving it. The versatile style is becoming a wardrobe essential - it's the perfect balance of sexy, yet subtle. From the catwalk and savvy celebrity style at Fashion Week, to the fanatic high street fashionista, everyone is wearing it and there's no reason you can't join in - it's age, body and style appropriate and you don't have to be a certain shape to show off your d├ęcolletage!

When Farfetch asked me to 'Style The Trend' I couldn't turn down the opportunity for some designer lusting. Whether you decide to style your outfit with a top, dress or a knit, there are certainly more ways than one to incorporate this trend to your daily wardrobe. All three looks I have created can be easily transformed from day to night, simply by mixing up accessories and footwear choices. .

Look 1:

This classic floaty feminine off the shoulder top and ripped jean, together with some fun accessories like the Stella Mccartney bag and amazing Aquazurra Pompom heels creates a faultless summer outfit for cocktails with the girls...

An alternative option would be to style it with a skirt, which would look great for a more dressed up occasion - perhaps a wedding? Or keep it sophisticated with a pair of tailored trousers to smarten the look.

Stella Mccartney £530
Aquazurra Pompom Heels £530

Look 2:

A perfect feminine off the shoulder look in a gorgeous print - this chic boho style dress is ideal for accentuating the waist and adding detail. With the array of colours in the print, I would suggest picking one and using it as the main accessory focus.. you'll be on to a winner!

Look 3:

This fresh look is perfect for a summers evening or stroll along the beach. Adding a pair of espadrilles or a simple sandal will ensure casual, whilst still oozing glamour.
