How to wear your off the shoulder dress

Off the shoulder dresses are a show pony piece by itself. There is no need for heavy accessories. If you do choose to wear jewellery, choose some dangly earrings, or a simple pendant necklace, but keep the accessories to a minimum. Off the shoulder dresses look great with sandals, wedges, platforms and even gladiator sandals. Cross the body handbags and clutches are the best bags to use when wearing an off the shoulder dress.

It has to be said that in order to pull off the off the shoulder dress, you will need to have a good décolletage and well-defined shoulders. They aren’t a dress that suits everyone. If you want to dip your toe into the trend, opt for a dress that shows one shoulder instead of both.
