An off the shoulder wedding dress is a statement in itself, reserved only for the style-conscious bride. A nod to the traditional wedding dress style with a modern twist, perfect for any bride, any shape. It is a style everyone can wear, leaving you to feel gorgeous and chic with this striking neckline.
If you want to accessorise your off the shoulder dress, here are five things you should consider…
- Let Your Earrings do the talking
The décolletage is one of the most underrated and beautiful parts of a woman's body. An off the shoulder wedding dress draws attention to this (super under-appreciated) area and tastefully shows some skin. Whilst a necklace works perfectly with a sweetheart or strapless dress, we suggest leaving the jewels at home and let your dress do the talking. If you’re a bride who likes to sparkle, give your décolletage its proper (and well deserved) moment in the spotlight and instead opt to style your dress with a pair of statement earrings.
- Work that Waistline
If in doubt - belt it out! (and no we don't mean Celine Dion lyrics) One of the best things about an off the shoulder wedding dress is the gorgeous hourglass figure it gives you. Accentuate your waist even more with a wide belt to emphasise that gorgeous feminine figure.
- Switch up that Silhouette
If you're an indecisive bride this tip was made especially for you! There are some really stunning sheath and mermaid options featuring that sexy off the shoulder neckline we all love. That said, if you LOVE the figure hugging look but can't part with your dream of being a princess bride - we have the perfect solution for you: a bridal overskirt!
A mermaid wedding dress paired with a fun and flirty overskirt makes all our wedding dress dreams come true!
- Style with a Sexy Shoe.
Finding the perfect wedding shoe isn’t an easy task, but when everyone will be looking at your gorgeous dress (honestly who even looks at a brides feet) our biggest advice is: Comfort is Key! A small heel, wedge or even an embellished wedding sandal will all work perfectly with an off the shoulder wedding dress.
- Let your train do the talking
If there’s one thing we love more than an off the shoulder wedding dress it’s a dramatic, swoon-worthy train! Hey – we love a train on any style wedding dress, but there is something extra special about opting for the fashion-forward neckline that is off the shoulder and finishing the look with an endlessly elegant train.
Create that wow-factor on an already stunning dress by opting for a gorgeous train. And, if you’re worried as to whether your train is venue-appropriate you can always ask your tailor to add a finger loop or bustle it up so you can be your best bridal self!
