Our style crush has done it again, Kendall Jenner has given us some serious outfit inspiration, this time in the form of a chic off-the-shoulder top. And she’s not the only A-lister to be getting into one of SS16’s key trends.
Flashing a bit of shoulder in a Bardot blouse isn’t necessarily something new, but at the Spring/Summer 2016 shows, they were one of the most important (and wearable) trends, and they’ve been flooding the high street and designer stores ever since.
And now, as we struggle to find new ways to dress during these trans-seasonal months, the cold-shoulder top is looking better than ever.
The sassy supermodel went for a paired-back shirt-style top complete with fine pinstripes and button-up detailing. As ever, Kendall worked her accessorising skills like a pro, pairing her shoulder-baring top with some distressed denim, an on-trend embellished choker and a pair of show-stopping metallic sandals. So far, so very Jenner.
Anyone who follows Kendall’s flawless, on-point looks –be it at a fashion week party or dashing between modelling gigs just as she was a few weeks ago when we spied her sporting a monochromatic off-the-shoulder and choker pairing heading into the Chanel show – will know just how savvy the IT girl can be when it comes to styling up her wardrobe.
And she’s not the only well-dressed star offering some seriously covetable new season style inspo. Other A-listers to get in on the off-the-shoulder act have been Olivia Palermo – who styles hers for a chic city vibe – plus Kate Hudson, Rihanna and Solange Knowles who have all been using the trend to amp up their cocktail and after hours attire.
Be it with a pair of wide-leg culottes, a trophy pencil skirt, or a pair of look-at-me trousers, the styling possibilities are endless with this do-it-all new season staple.
So no doubt you’re chomping at the bit to recreate this on-point Jenner look. And the good news is, it’s actually pretty easy to DIY.
It’s likely you already own some sort of skinny denim, and no doubt a pair of posh heels – preferably ankle tie sandals. So all you really need is that ultra-chic top and the all-important A-list finishing touch, the choker.
Should you be looking to splash out on a style to wear now, and well into the new season too, Ellery’s go-with-everything blue cotton version is well worth a look – it comes with added ruffles too.
