Flaunt your Shoulders

Fall in love all over again, this time with your dress!

Sophisticated and polished or laid back and Boho, a shoulder bearing gown is sure to turn heads.

Flaunt your Shoulders

With it’s universally flattering properties, it’s no surprise that one of the year’s hottest trends has trickled into bridal wear. Accentuating your décolleté adds a subtle sexiness to your look without losing that “blushing bride” air traditionally attributed to a classic wedding dress. For a demure touch, nothing beats a little lace as proven by designer Reem Acra’s ethereal collection. Based around lace sleeves and off-the-shoulder styles, Acra used scalloped lace, bell and even illusion sleeves to push the boundaries of this classic shape.

Don O’Neil, creative director for Theia, showcased both streamlined silhouettes and Bohemian inspired dresses with exposed shoulders. White Chantilly lace tiered ruffle gowns and ivory crepe mermaid gowns walked one by one down the runway. O’Neil also showcased an ivory crepe off-the-shoulder sweetheart jumpsuit for the bride looking for the perfect combination of classic and non-traditional.

    Love the shoulder bearing dresses especially the last one wich is more of a pants suit wich is soooo sophisticated and sexy and not to mention comfortable I have definitely changed my mind for my big day 😊
    Amazing style.

  • Daniela Muntean

    I personally really like my shoulders and I’m so glad shoulder bearing is trending in all styles (be it casual or posh), so I’m all for these dresses. I’m in love with the 3rd!

  • Jennifer Fike

    Honestly, I don’t get what the big deal is about this exposed shoulder tend. It’s not new. I got married about 12 years ago in a strapless dress.. lots of shoulder. That being said, the exposed shoulders is classic, classy, sexy, and beautiful.

  • shannon fowler

    I love the shoulder bearing dresses. I also love the colorful trend, but i personally just can’t break too far from white.

  • Carolyn Cheek- Massey

    I love the off of the shoulder dress but doesn’t look good on everyone. The first dress is beautiful. Fitting through the bodice @nd flaring at the bottom.

  • Andi Patimasari

    The last dress is stunning, especially if + dewy looking. Looks classy and glam.

  • Krystal Dunlap

    I love this trend the most!

  • Julie Waldron

    I like this trend the best but none of these dresses really appeal to me. If I have to pick a favorite, it would be the first one.
