Off the Shoulders






I've been noticing a trend where in chilly yet not glacial weather, people have been nonchalantly throwing their jackets over their shoulders instead of utilizing the customary armholes. Personally, I find this look chic and elegant, and have been practicing this skill myself. I find this practice particularly useful on days where you step out of a department store building where the AC has been jacked up to sweltering magnitudes, and instead of taking the liberty to transfer your belongings from one arm to another in order to forcefully drive your arm into the armhole, one would just throws their jacket over their shoulders in a single swift movement. Now, the garment that resulted from this stroke of genius, is the ever-cool cape, which I have yet to get my hands on.
