Great both for the day and the night, one-shoulder dresses are great for showing off your body this season. Here some fashion tips you need to always look stylish and how to wear them.
What is more sensual than showing your shoulders how in a provocative yet not excessive way? Well, let’s just say that all the boys seem to be thrilled to notice that the one-shoulder dress is back in trend!
Great for the day and perfect for the night, these sexy and classy dresses are a great tool for showing off your body this Spring/Summer, but I have to warn you that they are quite tricky to wear. Before thinking about wearing them this season there are a few things you need to know about accessorizing and styling them in order to pull them off glamorously.
Here are some essential fashion tips you need to consider to always look impeccable and stylish.
1. Try it before you buy it
These types of dresses have a beautiful neckline that unfortunately does not suit every body shape. It’s particularly tricky if you have big breasts, so when you try it on make sure that it fits you and flatters your body. You don’t want to look like a wrapped candy when you walk around!
2. Be careful with your underwear
Wear these dresses with a strapless bra underneath. Even though your regular bra has fancy and particular straps, with sequins or pearls, it will simply look awful under a gorgeous one-shoulder dress. Make also sure when trying it on that the bra does not show in the back. It’s an unforgivable fashion mistake that will detroy your look!
3. Don’t cover it up
An absolute no to layers! The whole point of this type of dress is to show off your gorgeous shoulders so there is no reasons at all for you to cover them up with blazers or cardigans. This is also why these dresses are particularly suitable for the warmer seasons, like Spring and Summer.
4. Wear it in a solid color
If you don’t feel particularly comfortable with this trend, maybe because you have never worn it before or you don’t think it really suits your style, don’t go for a patterned dress but one in a solid color. To spice it up you can then play a bit with accessories (continue reading this article for more information on how to accessorize it).
5. Belt it!
The secret weapon of every stylist is a belt that accentuates the waist and really flatters your body. It’s particularly indicated for one-shoulder dresses as it will give you a sexy hour-glass shape and no one will be able to resist you.
For the day
One-shoulder dresses are perfect for day ceremonies but also for a casual day out.
Get them in bright summery colors and go for either very short or maxi. Wear them with a pair of flat sandals or some colorful strappy wedges. You can also follow the asymmetric trend and have not only the asymmetric shoulders, but also an asymmetric length.
For the evening
How to wear one-shoulder dresses for the evening? For a glamorous grand soirée you cannot go wrong with a full gown, but if you think that it’s too much, go instead for a short dress embellished by sequins.
One-shoulder evening dresses in chiffon are great if you want to have a sweeter look and high heels are a must in any case. Use precious jewels to complete the outfit and you will shine like a star throughout the evening.
The Right Jewelry
The best solution is to go for simple accessories. Absolutely no necklaces as they would interfere with the beautiful neckline of the one-shoulder dress, which is already a fashion statement by itself. They would totally destroy the look, but if you really fancy a necklace, go for a choker, which lays close to the neck without interfering with the dress.
If the dress is already embellished by sequins or gems, just go with few small accessories so to not overdo it. If on the contrary the dress is very simple, you can choose a pair of statement pendant earrings, especially if your hair is styled in a bun.
Go for rings and bracelets, but don’t exaggerate. One elegant bracelet will be more than enough. If you want to go for a more exotic look, try to style it with a metal arm cuff.
The Right Hairstyle
Any updo will complete an outfit with a one-shoulder dress perfectly. Choose a tight chignon for an elegant and sophisticated look or a soft bun for a sweeter touch.
If you would like to keep your hair down, make sure that they lay behind your exposed shoulder and in front of your shoulder with the strap.
Follow these simple fashion tips and you will learn to wear one-shoulder dresses and rock this trend both during an elegant evening or a casual day. But just remember, don’t force this trend onto your body. If it doesn’t suit you, just leave it and try with something else!
The popularity of one-shoulder wedding dresses may come and go, but it’s inevitable that they will return. Choose a dress with a classic, one-shoulder silhouette rather than one that combines several different trends
