Last week was one of the most special weeks of my life, as our little baby boy was born! It's been a crazy emotional ride, topped by an overwhelming amount of love for this tiny miracle. I can't thank you enough for all your amazingly sweet wishes after our boy's introduction! Right now, we're taking a little time to settle in and fully enjoy our family of 4 (including Bobke, of course! :)), and I can't wait to share more of this amazing experience with you all!
For today, since I'll slowly but surely have to get used to a bump-less body again, it seems appropriate to share one of my favourite baby bump looks. I've always considered shoulders as one of the most beautiful female body parts, so I never pass up on pieces that show them off in a subtle & classy way. And while that happily made me adopt the cut-outs and off-the-shoulder trends in the past, this season it's all about the 1-shoulder trend! It's a smart way to add a bit of sexy to your look, which is very much appreciated during these baby bump-days. And if it seems a bit challenging to deal with asymmetrical pieces, here are 3 simple tricks to fully embrace the 1-shoulder trend right now:
1 / GO MONOCHROME
If you want all eyes on the asymmetrical cut of your outfit (and you do), go with a monochrome piece! By avoiding poppy colours and hefty prints, the unusual cut will be the unrivalled eye-catcher, making both your bare shoulder and collarbone look absolutely irresistible. The same goes for your accessories, which better be in neutral tones such as black & white. If you do like to add a bit of colour, do it at the bottom of your look, where it will balance out (rather than take the attention away from) your special top.
2 / DRAPE IT
If it's up to Chanel, draping is going to be a huge thing in the very near future, so why not be ahead of the trends and already start doing it now? Made from a soft light cotton fabric (such as this one that I picked up at Enes), a draped piece adds such a cute relaxed vibe to any 1-shoulder situation, and it will allow you to move around freely, without having to worry about the fit. Yup, a draped piece will rather adjust itself nicely to your body (and cover up whatever you want to!), which is just about as perfect as it gets!
3 / ADD ARM CANDY ON THE BARE SIDE
A great way to balance out the bareness of one of your arms is by adding some arm candy of course! Just layer on your favourite bracelets (here's how!) and you're all good to go!
What's your favourite way to wear the 1-shoulder trend? Will you be embracing this trend this season?
