Bare Shoulder Trend For Fall & Winter

The bare shoulder trend made its first appearance last spring and seemed perfectly fitting for warm weather months. As the climate has cooled off however, this trend kept its “cool” factor and proved it’s here to stay. It has now evolved into a Fall/Winter must have and is in everything from cozy sweaters to chic holiday party dresses.

Living in Colorado, I wanted to demo how to wear a bare shoulder top in a winter appropriate way. The answer is really quite simple, layering! Finding a way to layer that does not cover the bare shoulder detail is key.

I combined two of my favorite pieces, which most people wouldn’t instinctually think to put together: the Off Shoulder Ombre Top with the Faux Leather Vest.


A lot of women ask me what the most fashionable way wear a vest is. I believe they go with everything but are especially great to layer over tops with full sleeves. Rather than bunch the sleeves under a jacket, you can showcase the sleeve detail and movement while you keep warm.

I chose to accessorized the look with the Long Gray Suede Choker to add another subtle layer yet maintain the softness of the look.


For a pop of bold color, I’m loving this lip stain for fall: Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain in Sultry.

So there you have it! Have fun with layering while still allowing clothing to maintain the movement and fluidity it was designed to have.
