Nonchalance seems to be synonymous with the idea of cool, that carefree, devil-may-care attitude that seems to punctuate even the simplest of looks. It's the same insouciance that seems to thrum through the veins of those we've been style stalking lately, and whatever it is their drinking, we want some of it, too.
One thing we've learned from gleaning through our Instagram feed is a styling trick that's so simple, yet tricky to pull off without the right attitude. All it requires is some form of outerwear and a preference for one shoulder. Simply throw on a jacket and leave one side asymmetrically draped.
LEVEL 1: EASY
Bea Marin exhibits one way to dip your toes into the trend. Wear a body conscious dress and pare down the sexiness with a bulky jacket (plus points if it's a bomber.)
LEVEL 2: INTERMEDIATE
This time we're working with movement. A heavy denim jacket gives structure to a long, flowy dress. Throw one side off your shoulder and you've got an artfully disheveled off-duty look.
LEVEL 3: HARD
Aside from the fact that the one-shoulder styling trick serves as one way to stave off the heat, it also allows you to show off that cool graphic tee without sacrificing your swag. Throw on a paper thin outer layer and allow it to slide off one shoulder, almost like you put it on and completely forgot it was there.
