Spring 2016 Trend #1: The Cold Shoulder

Welcome to Real Life Style’s Spring Trend Month!

The shoulder cut-out may not seem like the most practical trend for your lifestyle, but it is a great way to show some skin without revealing too much. Look at the outfit below and imagine how sophisticated you would feel taking off the blazer to reveal the “cold” shoulder top underneath. We chose the Donna Karan top below because she was the designer known for highlighting the trend the first time around and still does it best. When worn beneath a blazer at work, the cut-outs are hidden and the shirt looks like a simple long-sleeve layer. Only you will know how stylish you are until you take off the blazer! And of course, if the patterned pants are too much for you or your workplace dress code, you can sub out the patterned pant for a black trouser.

After work, when getting drinks with friends or heading out on a date, take off the jacket and throw on a statement necklace for a super sexy look that shows just the right amount of skin.
