The open shoulder style was my favorite and I like how it's open only on one side rather than the usual two sides. The open shoulder look is a big trend right now but I don't love how impractical it is in a sweater - it should keep you warm but I felt quite cold due to the open shoulder. I do love how cozy the exterio…
