You may have seen a few people with their coats shrugged off their shoulders looking like they didn’t anticipate the weather properly. But don’t be fooled, this is in fact a brand-new trend called “shrobing” which is taking the fashion world by storm.
The look was first created by Demna Gvasalia, the Creative Director of Balenciaga, at the fashion label’s show in March last year but has recently been spotted among many of the best street style snaps.
We’ll give you some pointers on how to adopt it yourself.
First, you must find the right kind of coat by making sure its fabric is fluid enough to give the wanted effect. Then, once you have picked your coat and have slightly shrugged it off your shoulder, you should be aware of the fact that you won’t be able to move around much. We’ll admit it’s not the most comfortable trend…
You obviously won’t be able to wear a shoulder bag but don’t worry, you can wear a crossbody bag underneath your coat.
Lastly, you might be a little cold so try to only wear the trend in mild temperatures or, if you’re keen on braving the cold, make sure your neck is covered.
This may seem like a lot to think about but just take a look at the styles in our gallery and you’ll realise it’s all worth it. Besides, everybody knows fashion is hard work.
So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to pick a coat and start wearing the trend while it’s still hot!
