I like to call myself a pretty ‘on trend’ gal but let’s be real I don’t have the financial ability to go out and purchase trendy items as they come every single season. So, I’ve gotten real picky when buying certain pieces if they’re trending. When I’m looking for a trendy piece I try to find one that’s got some ‘essential’ in it. I got this dress last season because of the stripes because…I mean it’s stripes. It’ll remain in style forever. This dress, however, is really an off the shoulder dress with an elastic band. WHAAAAT, yes. I have worn it many times as its suppose to be (as a dress here) and even as a shirt (here)! Because statement sleeves are what’s trending: here is my fashion trend hack into wearing one shoulder dresses this season. If you’ve got an off the shoulder anything that has a print or texture and the band is elastic then GIRL, this hack is for you. See, what I did is literally so simple. I tucked in one sleeve. Then lifted the other sleeve over on my shoulder. This made my dress shorter on one side, because of course, it’s not meant to be worn this way so I added a belt to disguise the length situation and baaam, I’ve got my one shoulder dress! Since the dress has stripes that go vertical you can’t even tell that the sleeve is pulled inside into the dress. I mean, you tell me…can you tell? If I wouldn’t have told you…would you have picked up on that?
What a simple way to take last year’s fall trend (off the shoulder) into this years one shoulder trend! I really hope this works for you because when I put this dress on and decided to wear it like this I felt like a light bulb went off, you know? It was like I told the dress who is boss around here! Lol Let me know if you try this fashion trend hack out. How’s it look?
