One-shoulder prom dresses have been popular for centuries. This classical style of dress is favored for prom but you can guarantee you will be one of the few girls that choose it! It's a bold choice that not everyone can pull off!

A History of the One-Shoulder Dress

One-shoulder dresses date back to the Ancient Greeks and Ancient Egyptians who loved asymmetrical looks. One-shoulder dresses fit into the same category as cold shoulder (strapless) dresses and have repeatedly gone in and out of style throughout the years.

The 80s brought the one-shoulder dress back into popularity. Since then, it has had its moments. One famous fashion retailer owner stated that "five years ago, you couldn't sell a one-shoulder dress if you tried." This is a perfect example of how often this trend goes in and out of style because now the one-shoulder dresses are flying off the shelves!

Why A One-Shoulder Dress?

One-shoulder dresses are incredibly sexy. The one-shoulder dress exposes the neck, shoulders, and arms while clinging to the body and bringing attention to the chest. It's the perfect choice for someone who has the confidence to pull off an attention-grabbing outfit. Many shoppers also find that an off the shoulder prom dress is a good substitute if you can't find exactly what you are looking for.
