Thanks to the strapless trend, we’ve exposed our shoulders all summer. It was a very nice time to show off sun-kissed skin and look stylish.
The off shoulder dress is a staple that I honestly thought would only last a year. But I was obviously wrong. All the fashion girls loved the strapless dress and it was a pleasure to see all the cuts, colors and patterns they were wearing.
This post will teach you how to combine, wear and style a different type of off shoulder dress.
I’ve broken them down into four sections so we’re going to talk about classic and A-line dresses, then gingham and striped, and last but not least. At the end we will also see how you can wear maxi, midi and floral pattern dresses.
A-Line & Classic Off-the-Shoulders Dresses
A blue A-line dress and lace-up shoes are perfect choices for hot summer weather. The cut of these dresses will make you feel very comfortable and chic. It has a nice detail on a neckline ruffle.
With some nice minimalist jewelry, this is the ideal look for a summer weekend.
The great pink dress calls you to wear it every day! It’s perfect for your daily chores or for an easy and casual walk with the ice cream in hand.
Wear it with the flip-flops, flats or with the mules.
The red flowing dress is a great choice if you like this color and want to grab attention. It’s nice and made of cotton. Plus, it’s very flattering on your skin, especially on hot summer days when you need to be comfortable.
Wear it with the boater hat and lace-up shoes or sandals.
This dress strikes a perfect balance between a casual and sophisticated look. You can wear it with the funky flats or sandals. You can also wear it with the kitten heel shoes or even the high heels. You can definitely try to put on minimalist jewelry.

I’m going to show you some gorgeous embroidered dresses that you can wear.
