I wanted to share an email from a reader, Melissa, who totally rocked a one-shoulder dress!
Melissa: I read your article on accessorizing a one shoulder dress. I’m 42 years old and this is me in my daughter’s homecoming dress. I had the dress delivere dot my office and this was an impromptu shot. I was trying the dress on for kicks. LOL! I wanted my daughter to see that it fit me too! I happend to be wearing pearls at work, not thinking about it, but the dress truly looked great with and without the necklace.
Melissa looks Fabulous!! She got me thinking that I wanted to remind all of you that one shoulder dresses are excellent for Christmas parties. They’re sexy without showing too much, and very elegant too.
The one shoulder style looks best if you have average to wide shoulders, but stay away from them if you have narrow shoulders and wide hips ( pear shape). The bare shoulder will make your shoulders look small, and make you look more bottom heavy. Here are a few one shoulder dresses I found that are gorgeous for the Holiday season:
- Burgundy -Deck The Halls:
Picture yourself in this rich burgundy drape, standing by a beautifully decorated Christmas tree with candles aglow.
2. Blue – Satin Seduction: A knock-out dress with glam waist bling. It’s elegant, sexy and so age-appropriate. This dress works at Christmas or year round!
3. Black – Flirty and Fun:
I love the drama of this feather-trimmed one-shoulder. You’ll turn heads on New Year’s Eve in this sexy, fashion-forward gown.
Check out how one of my reader’s wore her one shoulder dress. It was a big hit!
