The Chic Key Fashion Trend to Wear in 2021 | Casual to Cocktail One Sleeve Dresses
One shoulder dresses are back! This is another one of the key fashion trends for 2021 that I absolutely adore as it’s so flattering on the shoulders. From Chanel to Bronx and Banco, Dolce and Gabbana to Dior, Juana Martin to Chromantics, this style was everywhere. Including high low hems, maxis and minis, all colors from black and white to vibrant prints. With styles ranging from casual to formal and dramatic one shoulder cocktail dresses there’s a style for everyone to fall in love with. And it’s not just for Summer, there were plenty of black one shoulder dresses and heavier weight one sleeve dresses for Winter too.
Best one shoulder dresses to wear now
I’ve searched for the best one shoulder dresses for all occasions and budgets. Whether you’re looking for a vacation outfit, one shoulder wedding guest dress, or formal winter event, there’s a style for everyone.
A lot of the Revolve one shoulder dresses sell out fast but they’re normally brilliant about restocking unless it’s on sale, so it’s worth signing up for their back in stock notifications. That way you’re front of the line when they get them back in and have more chance of snagging it.
One Shoulder Cocktail Dress
From long to short, I’m absolutely loving these glamorous, chic styles for 2021. So many of these styles drape so beautifully making them ultra flattering, they’re also a little more interesting than 2 shoulder versions. I tend to lean towards colorful styles for Summer and then shift to black and darker jewel tones for Winter.
Beauty tip: Add a little bronzer to your bare shoulder for a golden goddess look that catches the light.
Casual One Shoulder Dresses
These casual one shoulder dresses range from boho to beach ready to dressier. They’re perfect for vacations, beach coverups, BBQ’s, brunch or date night. A white one shoulder dress is so summery and fresh while the colorful floral prints are feminine statement pieces.
