On Trend: Off-the-Shoulder

Off the shoulder cocktail dresses and ball gowns are always in style. The classic choice is a white off the shoulder ball gown or the LBD with a twist – an off the shoulder cocktail dress. A crop off the shoulder top with an elevated waist bottom is a racier option for the bolder of you.

Occasions to Wear Formal, Off the Shoulder Dresses

An off the shoulder ball gown wouldn’t be out of place at a red carpet event, a gala, a prom, or if you’re a wedding guest. An excellent choice for any of these occasions would be an off the shoulder formal with Basque waist by Jovani. The upper arms are draped by slender straps, while the section-wise seamed bodice ensures a snug fit along the midriff and bust. The flattering Basque waist transforms into a luxurious pleated skirt.

One of our favorite off the shoulder cocktail dresses is the frilly number with double skirt by Faviana. This is a truly remarkable skater dress. A charming sweetheart neckline is framed by broad shoulder straps, embellishing a sleeveless bodice. Sculpting lines create the illusion of a handmade fit along the waist and bust, while the sides of the midriff are bared by chic cutouts. The double-layered circle skirt flows down to a short, dual-length hemline in satiny flutters.

Why not choose an off the shoulder dress for your special day? Spring and summer brides are overwhelmingly favoring this gorgeous look. In white, Sherri Hill’s off the shoulder A-line evening gown would be perfect for a wedding. It has the added benefit of being flattering to every body type with the A-line creating a slender, elongated silhouette.

The gorgeous look of this design begins with a charming off the shoulder sweetheart neckline. The natural waistline transitions into a perfect A-line skirt, characterized by wispy layers.
