Shoulder Robing Trend

Shoulder Robing

‘Shoulder robing’- the practice of layering a coat over your shoulders – is a fashion blogger style fave and an effortless transitional style trick to add to your wardrobe. Simply throw over your shoulders – paired with a chunky knit on a cold day and a simple tee or dress come spring. We love the easy elegance of adding an oversized biker jacket.

The midi skirt is a transitional style fave as it acts as the outfit foundation – simply build your look around it. Wear it now with a fitted jumper, tights and knee-boots and come spring, add a sandal or ballet pump with a short sleeved blouse.

One bright colour can transform your outfit and offset the dark tones we usually wear through the winter season. It will brighten your look, complexion and overall mood. It’s a transitional style trend that actress Jessica Alba has perfected over the years, with one bright piece transforming her entire look.
