by Andrea Uku · April 22, 2013

We may be slowly moving out of coat season, but since we all know that the spring months can be the most unpredictable of all, you may not want to pack away the outerwear just yet. That said, we can all give thanks to our favorite fashion insider, Jenna Lyons, for sparking a new trend in wearing jackets and coats through spring. We're talking about the widespread "over the shoulder" look that Jenna single-handedly pioneered. From Solange Knowles to Kate Lanphear, we've seen some of our favorite style trendsetters opting to go arms out, subtly draping their favorite outerwear over their shoulders instead. Take a cue from Jenna Lyons and the rest of the fashion elite and start wearing the cape look today.
