Okay okay. I'm aware that every season is about the next big trend but this one started back a few seasons back and it's just getting stronger. I love that it's trickling into fall because I for one am a big fan! I'm talking about OTS - aka, off the shoulder.
As far as the fashion world goes this is one of the most universally flattering shapes out there, regardless of age, body, and weight. It's flattering on all women and beautifully accentuates a the body with just the right amount of sex appeal.
I personally fell in love with this flannel OTS top that Club Monaco released for fall. It's more like a tunic since it's a bit longer and more relaxed which makes it excellent for wearing with leggings and long sweater coats. I paired mine with a pair of skinny jeans (similar here) and a beautiful plaid wool coat, also from Club Monaco. The look I have is perfect for a casual dinner out with the hubs but also for running errands on the weekend and still being comfortable.
Club Monaco released their 'See Now Buy Now' collection during NYWF. Items from the show were available for purchase the same day at the Bloor Street location in Toronto. The CM heritage print tote I'm wearing here was a limited edition gift with purchase from the Bloor St. store with a purchase of $250 or more.
The right bra is key for wearing the off the shoulder trend. I suggest you try a few on and move around in it to make sure you're comfortable and that it doesn't slide down. My all time favourite is Fantasie, a brand from the UK. I've been wearing them for about 8 years now and swear by them. They're perfect for medium to large busts since the bras have excellent support without compromising on comfort.
