Style expert and fashion blogger, Candie Anderson has the scoop on 21 trendy one shoulder dresses for women of all ages.

 

 

My love for one shoulder dresses is strong! They’re classy, chic, beautiful and always on trend. This style that is beloved by celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Olivia Munn and Jennifer Lopez just to name a few. If you’re looking for a dress you can wear time and time again and will always make a statement, you’ll adore the one shoulder dress trend.

One shoulder dresses are perfect for spring/summer wedding season, the Kentucky Derby, holiday parties and more. Earlier this spring I fell in love with two one shoulder dresses and knew I had to have them. They were both under $100 and on deep discount during the Shopbop sale. I wondered to myself – do I really need two one shoulder dresses? It didn’t take me long to decide that yes I did! Especially since they can be dressed up or down with shoes, jewelry and accessories. 

If you’re searching for a fabulous new one shoulder dress or interested in learning how you can pair them for wedding season, graduation parties, backyard barbecues, etc. you’re in luck. Today, I’m excited to share 22 fabulous one shoulder dresses that you will adore.

This lightweight fully lined eyelet dress is a favorite of mine! It can be dressed up or down and worn many different ways this summer! I can see pairing it with flat slide sandals, my Tory Burch flip flops for a casual outing. I finally bought a pair of white Golden Goose sneakers, and can’t wait to pair them with this dress for a casual barbecue. You can also dress it up with wedge sandals or strappy heel sandals for a bridal shower.
