Talking trends: Off the shoulder Pt. II

FashionLucy LopezComment

So now that I finally feel like the dust has settled and I'm finally getting used to my new schedule, here I am with my part 2 of Talking Trends!

Being that it's Sunday, I felt that this would be the perfect day for an outfit post. Every Sunday I tend to go through my closet and figure out my outfits for the week, so hopefully, this look can serve as some inspiration. 

I am a creature of habit, and as you saw in my last Talking Trends, I stick with all black because I know it's a classic look. But for this one, I had a little more fun.

I went with a colorful flat shoe to break up the blue monochromatic tones. If I hadn't been shooting in the middle of a field (props to Ryan Kell aka Seek Axiom for making me be adventurous) I would've styled this with a pair of block heels. 

One of my favorite ways to wear boyfriend jeans is with a heel! It adds a touch of girliness and lengthens your leg which can sometimes get lost in the baggier silhouette.

I love all these off the shoulder styles that are playing into the poplin trend. There's nothing like a well-structured shirt to make you feel a little more sophisticated. This one from Forever 21 is a little bit thinner making it super lightweight for the summer months coming up!

I love the "cold shoulder" look simply because you can still wear a regular bra. Let's be real ladies, no one likes strapless bras! You still get to play into the trend while being a little more comfortable.
