How to Wear a Cold-Shoulder Top in the Fall

cold-shoulder top

You guys, I am SO excited for September! I think it’s probably my favorite month…something about the way the evenings smell makes me feel like fall is coming 🙂 To start the month off I wanted to share another look that’s great for this transition time. I love these jeans from MOTHER Denim, and for the summer-fall transition, I like pairing them with a cold-shoulder top. It adds a summery vibe that looks great with jeans, and you can layer it if it’s chilly!

Cold-Shoulder Top

I’m really in to the cold-shoulder top trend, because I love how you can wear it year-round! This particular one is something I can even wear to work #BONUS. The thing I really love about cold-shoulder tops though is how flattering they are. I have wide shoulders, so I really can’t wear a true off-the-shoulder blouse (it just makes me look even wider). But with cold-shoulder tops, I feel like I get the same sexy peak of shoulder, but the sleeves still bring my shoulders in and make them look less wide.

Pair it with Mother Denim Jeans

Mother Denim is one of my favorite brands for well-made jeans that fit my body type. I’m tall, have a small waist, a big butt, and curvy thighs. Mother Denim makes their jeans to fit a woman’s body (or maybe a mother’s? Either way, I’m in to it lol) and they fit me like a glove. You can shop this particular pair here, but I also recommend checking out Revolve’s website, which has a ton of options (here). Also, if you’re in Portland, head to one of Adorn’s three locations to try them on for yourself!

Add a Sweater for Chilly Fall Mornings

One of my favorite things in the world is throwing on an oversized knit sweater on a chilly fall morning. I love that I can still do that with a cold-shoulder top. The sleeves don’t get too bunched up, and I can stay warm in the morning and just remove the layer as the day heats up! This knit cardigan from Old Navy is one of my absolute favorites (as seen here on the blog previously).

For me, cold-shoulder tops are definitely the way to go. As much as I love the off-the-shoulder trend, it just doesn’t work for me. So I’ve compromised with a cold-shoulder, and I love that I can still wear it in the fall! What are your tips for transitioning your summer tops in to fall? Leave me a comment below!

    LOVE this look! Easy to pull off on anyone, chic to wear almost anywhere, and comfortable. I love Old Navy sweaters and haven’t been able to peruse their collection for the fall yet. You have just given me the nudge. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m inlove with your top… and I’m digging how you styled this! I’m not excited to see the summer go but I do miss my layers. I do need new cardigans for fall and winter so I’m def going to take a gander at some shops and use this as inspo 😉

    I love being able to transfer some of my summer wardrobe over to fall! This looks perfect for the days where mornings and evening are cool, but afternoons are hot.

    I just love the print and color of your off the shoulder top. I’m looking forward to rocking the new off the shoulder tops I wasnt able to use during the summer.
