Today’s post is about a trend that yours truly wishes was finally over. But as mainstream fashion always needs some time to catch up, a trend always ends up staying at least 2 seasons too long. Meaning that even the last person has probably caught up with it and purchased an IT piece. The death note for any trend is therefore handed over when high street labels have repeatedly added previously described IT piece to their collection just to ditch it again during another craze midseason sale.

Ironically, I chose to wear an off-shoulder blouse, even though I strongly believe that fashion has moved passed it already. It’s also not been a strongly apparent trend on BASIC APPAREL since I struggled with the girly vibe surrounding it – think ruffles and pastel colours. Why am I adding an off-shoulder piece to my wardrobe then? Especially, since I just made you read 200 words about being a trend that is SO over. Well, honestly I am not sure. I was drawn to it because of its perfect body-hugging silhouette, the slightly A-lined hem as well as the raw hems. For me, it’s much less an IT piece than a timeless classic, newly interpreted.
