There was a time (not that long ago) when slinging a jacket over your shoulders was perceived as pretentious and a bit silly, but now the look is all over street style blogs and has been de rigueur at fashion weeks in NY, London, Paris and Milan. We're skipping sleeves in favor of a slung-jacket look: not actively putting on the jacket or coat, just letting it be there, draped on their shoulders and guarding us against the cold.

Logistically, of course, this is no easy fet. Forget hugs when greeting a friend, shoulder bags are impossible and add a bit of wind and your jacket is left splayed on ground. Really doing anything with your arms is out of the question. But impractical as it may seem, there is a way to pull off  jacket-as-cape without losing your top layer

The best time for slinging is when you’re in transit, going from a-to-b - from the office to a nearby outside meeting, or from the school run back to the house. Once inside, wearing a coat like this is a stylish way to forgo the coat check. One pitfall of this trend is that without the jacket secured on your arms it can easily fall off and be forgotten e.g in the back of the cab so try with caution.

 Here’s a few of our fav moochi pieces we’ve styled in our little “perched over her shoulder” looks for you this week. Enjoy!
