Who Should A Wear One Shoulder Dress?
While Bardot or off-the-shoulder dresses are most flattering on people with small to medium busts, narrow shoulders, and petite, pear, athletic, and hourglass body shapes. One shoulder dresses are perfect for curvy women, people who have heavier bottoms, and/or broad shoulders.
The one-shoulder dress focuses attention on the neck and shoulder area, giving little or no room for attention to the lower body. The neckline of the dress is a style trick for making broad shoulders appear less prominent. That they are perfect for some people does not mean they can’t be worn by other body shapes. Here is a detailed guide on how to wear the one shoulder dress for all body types.
Different Ways to Wear One-Shoulder Dresses
For a casual look on a one shoulder dress, opt for fun prints, and patterns such as polka dots, checkers, and florals. They can be worn in all seasons from summer to spring to look a lot feminine and feel comfortable.
Prepping for a wedding, cocktail, or formal event, a one shoulder dress is simply chic and elegant to wear. A well-tailored or fitted one-shoulder dress that ends right on the knee or below is a great choice. To step up the flare of your formal looks at an evening dinner, go for an ankle-length dress with a slit on one side. You can have the covered shoulder with a long sleeve, but if it’s summer a sleeveless style would serve.
One shoulder party dresses in vogue are shiny sequins and sparkly metallic outfits. Most of these styles are mini-length with a cute thigh slit. Shine-bright one shoulder dresses allow you to embrace the party vibes while giving rook for comfort.
How Should You Wear Your Hair With A One Strap Dress?

For a graduation ceremony or prom, a high textured ponytail or tight twist will give you an elegant and sophisticated look while fully defining the smiles on your face. High and tight topknot, classic chignon, simple tuck, or a low elegant bun looks flattering when attending a formal event as the style can make the neck appear elongated and sleek. Low straight hair, side-swept ponytail, or low ponytail, fits the mood at annual holiday celebrations. Long loose waves are more like the party style. If you want to let loose your sweeter side, go for a soft messy bun.
Not sure what hairstyle to wear with your one shoulder dress, go for a simple updo. It’s the one-size-fits-all hairstyle for rocking your dress effortlessly. If you like to keep your hair down, then you should sweep the hair to one side of the shoulder, leaving the exposed shoulder open.
