If you're the kind of person who loves observing fashion animals (raises hand), you'll know that the off-the-shoulder slouch is the hottest trend in fashion right now. From the runway to the Hadid sisters to Kim Kardashian and every fashion-forward influencer; fashionistas everywhere have jumped onto this bandwagon.

The trend is simple; grab any oversized, bomber, leather or denim jacket in your closet, slip your arms and ONLY your arms through and call it a day! Finally! A fashion trend that doesn't require us to change our entire wardrobe, body size, personality and everything in between. I find the trend to be rather impractical, then again so is wearing your coat on your shoulders (cape style) and I tend to do that A LOT! Oh the pain we go through to remain ahead of the fashion curve is daunting.

How to wear this trend you ask? It works with just about anything. I kept it simple by pairing my oversized denim jacket (also my latest obsession for the past three months) with a jeweled skirt, a crisp white t-shirt (essential) and tan heels. Of course I had to finish the look off with another favourite of the season; the choker and a nautical inspired bag which makes it's way onto my favourites list year after year.
