Show Off Your Shoulders While You Still Can In Fall's Sexiest Jacket

It's not sweater weather just yet.

Summer meant showing off our gorgeous tans with an array of mini dresses and off-the-shoulder tops. But then September hit, and we all know what that means: the leaves take on the colors of our favorite terracotta blouse, the winds become less breezy and more biting and our golden glow fades, masked by knit scarves and trench coats... that is, if you’re going down without a fight.

Instead of retreating into dowdy fashion hibernation, the style gods have gifted us with silhouette that’s a little less queen-of-the-beach than some of our favorite warm-weather staples, but suitably rocker-chic for the fall: off-the-shoulder jackets. They rocked the scene last season, with Demna Gvasalia’s sculptural, v-necked masterpieces for Balenciaga, but we’ve spotted them all over the high street again this year. From sexy, collar bone-bearing leather jackets to sequined streetwear bombers and elegant Bardot blazers, the message is loud and clear: despite the falling temperatures, September remains fashion’s hottest month – and in no way should we be hiding in our winter cocoons while that golden autumn glow is still lighting us so beautifully.
 
So how do we style this statement piece in an outfit that’s worthy of this industry-wide wardrobe rivalry? Our tip: accessories or layering. If you want the jacket to steal the show, don’t pile up shirts (or, God forbid, a scarf) underneath. Instead, a choice pair of earrings – like gold baubles with an unique design or drop hoop earrings – will draw attention to your collarbones, and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses will channel Kendall Jenner's model-off-duty nonchalance. However, if you’re interested in playing with a more complex, glossy-magazine-editorial look, go the opposite route and pile on the layers – a structured button-down peeking out the neckline of the jacket, a wool skirt or skinny jeans and a newsboy cap and stylish sock boot to tie it all together, because you can never have too much Gvasalia in your life, right?
