This is the time of year for graduations, weddings, baby showers, and anniversaries, which means the hunt is on for the perfect special occasion dress! If you crave something new, different, and classy, then a cold shoulder dress should be at the top of your list. Here’s a look at three cold shoulder special occasion dresses that will make you shine.
1. Elegant Cold Shoulder Pencil Dress
A feminine, floral dress always looks right for a special summertime event, and this one is a beauty! This sleek Bardot pencil skirt dress with its vintage-inspired floral print would look lovely at a wedding. Many women find off the shoulder leaves them feeling a bit too exposed. This more modest style with its cold shoulder straps makes it so much more wearable.
Another great thing about this dress? The length is lovely and ladylike, but the elegant front slit adds a touch of sex appeal. I don’t think this dress will last long in stores. It’s just so pretty!
2. Feminine Cold Shoulder Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is one of my favorite types of dresses because it accentuates a woman’s figure and helps create that hourglass shape. Add a pretty cold shoulder into the mix and floaty chiffon fabric, and you have an airy, ethereal look that’s super romantic.
I think this would be a great dress to wear to your son or daughter’s college graduation. It would also be pretty at a baby or bridal shower because it is full of softness and sweetness.
3. Cute Cold Shoulder Shift Dress
If you like a comfy dress that gives you some breathing room, then this floaty floral shift dress is for you. A shift dress is great for hiding a thick waist and lets you have that piece of bread or delicious dessert at the wedding reception without having to worry about holding it in your tummy. ( Don’t we know that feeling!)
The fluttery cold shoulder sleeves make it fresh and feminine. Pair it with some low-block heels for a cute, modern look.
