Trending Tuesday: The Cold Shoulder *Off The Shoulder Style*

Trending Tuesday: The Cold Shoulder *Off The Shoulder Style*

Hey Everyone, Happy Tuesday. We’ve survived through another Monday, it’s spring time and to top it all off it’s another edition of Trending Tuesday over here on the Zaychishka Style Blog. I’ve decided to make this TT about that off the shoulder look that you might be seeing more of now that the warmer weather is chasing away the last chill of winter’s breathe. The off the shoulder look is tres retro, and some are saying that this look has made it out of the revolving trend graveyard, becoming a fashion staple. The off the shoulder look can be suited to fit anyones needs regardless of style or taste. Just have a look for yourself.

Pussy Bows & Burgundy

Pussy Bows & Burgundy
There are so many trends each season, and this winter there’s no exception. I’m sure some of you have noticed that the Pussy Bow blouse has been a staple since fall. (ahh I hate that name!!) But you’ll also notice there’s a lot of elements in the Pussy Bow blouse this time around that draws from the 80’s, sans shoulder pads. Everyone from Miroslava Duma to Olivia Palermo have been pulling off the look. What makes this blouse so appealing, (& it’s definitely not the name choice) is the soft, and ethereal romantic feel it can have. I love the look of satin or silk with the bow style, and I really favour the type of blouse that has a loose fitted neckline, Like Mira Duma’s in the image below.
That being said, I also came up with a look of my own that uses a lot of Burgundy, And as promised this is one of the Holiday inspired looks I came up with. I think this look would work best for an interview, or if you’re going out with your girlfriends, and you’re feeling like one of the Ladies of London. This look is prim! To spice it up further,  pair it with a leather jacket. Anyways I hope you enjoy the inspiration 🙂

The ushanka is one of Russia’s greatest media icons, and an item that I tend to crush on from time to time. If you were with me last winter then you might remember that I wrote two posts about the ear flap hat : Wearing Ushankas With Attitude and Ushankas Are Just Made For Winter Street Style. This year I thought I’d revive the ushanka because 1). Fun, chic, and cute looks can be made with them. e.g. Just imagine sipping on hot chocolate in a chalet somewhere while wearing one. 2). If you’re like me who can’t pull off beanies or tuques well this may be an option for you. And 3). Both Babushkas and Russian mothers agree that it’s important to keep your head warm so you won’t get meningitis, and whats better than an ushanka at keeping your head warm? (Russians take keeping your head warm seriously)
