Embrace the Off-The-Shoulder Trend This Spring

The new way to wear your jacket is unexpected and playful, and has swept across the runway into real life in a social media whirlwind. A tailored jacket draped over the shoulders, deftly styled on one shoulder, or completely hanging off both, are the three options to wear outerwear now, as seen on Karen Wazen, Kim Kardashian, Imaan Hammam, and Gigi Hadid. Demna Gvasalia, creative director of Balenciaga, debuted a series of V-shaped coats at his Fall 2016 show, cementing the look as a key silhouette for the new season. The trend has migrated into the mainstream with key outerwear pieces being purposefully cut off the shoulder. Unravel Project debuted a distressed version with blue and black denim jackets with extra wide necklines, while Faith Connexion has released a variety of off-the-shoulder cover-ups, from biker jackets to double-breasted blazers. In the gallery below, explore Vogue Arabia’s top picks of off-the-shoulder outerwear and key pieces from regional designers that can be styled to fit the trend.
