Off The Shoulder Dresses For Every Dresscode

Off the Shoulder Dresses for Every Dress Code
Off the Shoulder Dresses for Every Dress Code

Part seventies nostalgia, part fifties throwback, the multitude of off-the-shoulder gowns, peppering both the Spring and Fall  2016 runways offered endless inspiration for wedding guests. Transcending dress codes, this cut offers demure femininity, yet a hint of skin, while other incarnations merged both bohemian and black tie

For relaxed beachside or garden ceremonies, consider cascading layers of silk in pale shades, or a delicate print (think Liv Tyler in Stealing Beauty as your bohemian muse). For a chic, inner city celebration think sculpted minimalism or lace Cocktail, while Black Tie calls for floor sweeping, or a dramatic statement sleeve. 

Loose hair evokes a breezy effortlessness, while up-styling (think bohemian braids or unexpected knots) only accentuates the elegance of bare shoulders and collarbones. Frame with a simple necklace, or bold earring, and complete the look with a clutch.
