Vintage is back — we have 50s makeup, 70s skirts and 80s shoes. So why not embrace the trendy new takes on old styles in your wedding dress choice? One way you can do just that is by sporting a cold shoulder gown. Cold shoulder gowns features a partial sleeve with a cutout exposing just your shoulder. These elusive gowns come in all shapes and styles, and are perfect for a trendy bride who doesn’t want to stray too far from tradition. Cold shoulder gowns can be mermaid style and built to show off your curves, or they can be sheath dresses fit for a hippie queen. Although the trend is all the rage in street fashion, it’s surprisingly hard to find bridal dresses that feature the style, so you have to dig to find your look.
Cold shoulder dresses are perfect for brides who want to show a little skin while still maintaining the support that straps bring. They’re also perfect for those who want to jump on the bandwagon of this year’s bridal style, sleeved gowns. If you don’t want to commit to bell sleeves or a fully covered arm, the cold shoulder is a great solution. Not only will you bring some added sass to your gown of choice, but you’ll also be able to get a bit of coverage on your arms, which can be a dealbreaker for some. To help you find the perfect dress, we are sharing our favorite cold shoulder gowns that will give your dress the bit of flair it needs on your big day.
