As fall transitions us to cooler months, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear this season’s hottest trends. From style tips to makeup trends to home décor, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas gear up for fall weather.

Although the fall chill has started to set in, we’re not quite ready to let go of summer’s off-the-shoulder trend. Luckily, we don’t have to – and neither do you! This season, transition to cooler temps with a chic cold shoulder top that pairs perfectly with your autumn wardrobe. If you’re not totally sure how to pull off this trend, here are three blogger-approved ways to rock a cold shoulder this fall.


Candace of Live Love Read pairs a cold shoulder with bright, statement-making colors to make sure all eyes are on her trendy top.

“Believe it or not, but I am personally convinced that every woman wants to show a little bit of skin. One of the things I love most about the cold-shoulder trend is that it allows you to show that little bit of skin in the most modest way possible! Just a little touch of shoulder.”

When styling this look, I really wanted to accentuate the shoulder, since it is indeed the point of interest for this top. To really centralize the attention on my shoulders, I opted to go with a bold colored top and layer with a bold colored statement necklace. Combining these two choices helps to keep the attention on the top half of my outfit. In order to keep this look neutralized and not too busy, I opted for an ashy black denim and ankle boot.”


Natalie of Natalie in the City loves how simple shoulder cutouts can give her entire outfit the edgy look she adores.

“If there is ever an opportunity to sport cut-outs on my sleeves or on the shoulder of a blouse, I’ll take it. Since the cut-out look gives off an edgy vibe, I wanted to pair this top with fitted cargo skinny jeans and a choker, necklace combo.

The black ankle boots top off my look perfectly, and I also worked in a wrap bracelet embellished with crystals to incorporate some sparkle into my outfit. The blouse was longer in length so I decided to tie a knot on the right side of the top to give it a more fitted look.”


Nina of The HSS Feed embraces this fall’s take on the off-the-shoulder trend, pairing it with her favorite seasonal hues and styles.

“I’ve loved the off-the-shoulder look all summer long, so I was really happy to see it transition to fall in a slightly different way, with cold shoulder cutouts. For me, this look is a great way to be a little sassy and show some shoulder, but still stay warm as temps start to drop in the coming weeks and months. 

The rich berry red shade is one of my favorite trends of the season, so I went a little out of my comfort zone and styled a look in that color from head to toe. The sweater I wore is a great staple piece and can be styled more casually when paired with distressed denim and booties or dressed up with leather-look leggings and black heels. Don’t forget to complete your look with accessories like a plaid blanket scarf, layer on some long necklaces or wear long statement earrings to draw even more attention to those cutouts!”

Whether you keep it simple or go for a bolder look, cold shoulder tops are here to stay this fall. Need some more fashionista-inspired advice? Check out 3 blogger-approved ways to wear boot socks this fall.
