The One Shoulder Dress Trend
One shoulder dresses offer both sophistication and uniquely dramatic design. This trend doesn't show signs of stopping; stars like Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, and many more are baring shoulders. These elegant dresses come in a range of shades and styles. While many one shoulder gowns are formal, there are also a number of more casual options available. Browse these dress styles to choose a look that's right for you.
One Shoulder White Grecian Dress
Fun and flirty, a short one shoulder white, Grecian inspired dress like this style from the Jessica Simpson collection is perfect for summer.
One Shoulder Casual Dress
A short print version of the single shoulder dress, like this multicolored style from London Times, creates a more casual feel than other, more form fitting options.
Red One Shoulder Satin Dress
A bright red satin dress with feminine details, like this gown from David's Bridal, is spicy, yet still sophisticated.
Ruched One Shoulder Dress
Textured or ruched fabric, like that in this Eliza J style, helps camouflage small figure flaws for a flattering look.
Embellished Single Shoulder Dress
A flowy dress with burnout embellishment and draped ruffle is a sweet and feminine take on this dramatic look. Shown here is a hi-low style from Halston Heritage.
Elegant One Shoulder Gown
A long single shoulder gown is simple and elegant. A bold color like eggplant or teal, looks sleek with its simple details like an embellished waist and split leg.
Pair the color red with a one shoulder dress design and you have a recipe for bold, sexy style.
From bold to feminine, though, there are so wonderful options with these dresses. For more dress ideas and fashion tips, see:
