I love the look, but how do their jackets stay on? It’s not a look that is practical for my everyday life.
love these photos!!! and i love loveee the over the shoulders trend!!
Totally the chicest – though not always the most practical – way to wear a coat!
It’s like the cap trend, but with sleeves. I saw this over-the-shoulders look all over NYFW but didn’t feel my coats were the right style for it. I’m still iffy on it. Hmm.
Great collection of images! Love it!
Totally agree- I’m a bit too clumsy to make this look as chic as these ladies. Love the inspiration though.
They’re all doing it and they don”t even look cold LOL
Feliz día mujer!!! Que lo disfrutes plenamente y tengas un día maravilloso!!!
Love this look but just don’t know how realistic or practical it is for walking around the city.
These ladies just want to show off their clothes which otherwise would be covered up by their coats, hahaha! This is not practical at all but nice to look at

This is like the emperor’s new clothes. Why is everyone saying they like this when it is so stupid?
I’ve noticed people doing that more and more. I’m not sure how they manage, anytime I’ve tried that my coat just ended up on the ground.
So bored of seeing this trend, it’s so impractical. If I could pick every jacket off someone’s shoulder during fashion month, I’m pretty sure I could fill a empty walk in closet.
Those women make that look so chic! I don’t think I could pull something off like that but it is nice to see other women make it work so well for them! http://lindseyyoung.net
It’s such a great thing wearing your coat like this, especially when it;s not freezing cold! (other wise even if you wanted, you couldn’t) Your hands feel so free!

Forget the over-the-shoulders look… Did you notice the woman in the yellow jacket’s nails (with the striped interior of her bag showing)?! LOVE!
I really like it – it looks cool and chic.
That’s scary! My look today was a over the shoulder look! I such a trendsetter! Check out my blog wwww.DeeoniC.com for fashion tips, image checks and outfit pictures daily.

Great Street Style inspiration! Love all this colour!
Love the Kelly green and cobalt blue mixed!
Helps when the weather is variable, changing from chilly at that time, to colder later when you need to wear it with arms in sleeves.
Amazing OUTFITss……The last woman,….OMG…She looks amazing.

The last woman is incredible, She looks amazing.
I really like this way of wearing jackets – it’s funny how some trends don’t have to do so much with what is worn as how one wears it. I especially like the first, orange purse, striped sweaters, and baseball cap photos.
i love that woman’s green metallic brocade jumpsuit! genius!
I’m with Nina and Tina. I love your blog but WTF indeed with this look. I have seen it on a couple of fashion blogs, I just don’t understand how wearing a coat over your shoulders (impractical) can be a new fashion statement. For some reason the very idea winds me up something rotten! Sorry just needed to get that off my chest.
i love how its makes them look so cool and effortless.
All those people are doing that nowadays, it’s stupid. If you want to show off your clothing underneath, just don’t wear your coat, you’re cold anyway. If it’s Fashion you MUST do it, right?
