Slits and Shoulders: How to Rock the Sexiest Trend This Fall

By: Amelia Lytle

This fall, it seems less is more, so don’t be afraid to show a little skin, even as the weather cools down. Showing some skin in unexpected ways will always add a stunning, sexy twist to an outfit. The best ways to achieve this trend for fall is with off-the-shoulder tops, open backs, and slits. These styles may seem more common in the hotter months, but can be just as successful in the fall with the right pieces.

The off-the shoulder trend originated on the runway, and spread quickly to social media, “fast-fashion” brands, and the general public. It is a trend that flatters all body types and adds a hit of sex-appeal to any outfit. In the colder months, this trend can be adapted to off-the-shoulder sweaters and long sleeve tops.

Open backs add a lot to an Open backs add a lot to any outfit, but can be understated because they add skin in the back, rather than the front. We at Equal Time love this trend because it’s risky but achieves a sexy look. This look is great for fall because it can be super versatile to keep up with the constant changing weather that comes with fall!  Whether you wear the style as a dress, shirt, or even as a pair of pants with a slit up the side, the look is appropriate for all occasions and weather. Rock an open back sweater with jeans and boots for a perfect casual look for fall, or don an open back dress for a more formal outfit for a night out on the town.

Off-the-shoulder tops, open back shirts, and slit dresses and pants work perfectly for fall because they are a sexy and unique, and deviate from the expected looks for fall. Rock these trends all autumn long and you will be fashionable throughout the change in temperature.
