Showing some skin is sexy, and most styles accommodate for a little cleavage or some extra leg display. But you can be more creative than that! Show off your elegant shoulders and sexy arms; paired with the right shoes and accessories, a one-shoulder dress can put all eyes on you and make you feel like you've hit the fashion lottery.
Peep Toe Pumps
Peep toe pumps work on the same principle as the dress: showing just a little extra skin entices and intrigues. Pair a simple one-shoulder dress that hits just below the knee, in a simple, flowing silk fabric, with your favorite pair of patterned peep toes. A roaring red silk, brightly patterned dress will benefit from a neutral-toned peep-toe to balance out the look.
Chunky Strappy Sandal
A chunky sandal gives balance to the delicate look of a one-shoulder dress. Don a red and black dress with a black sandal or an electric blue number with yellow sandals if you want to dazzle in Technicolor. Choose a heel height based on your level of comfort; since the dress conveys coolness and sophistication, your walk should do so as well. If you're tottering in your shoes, wear a lower heel.
The classic pump goes with just about any style of dress, from short and snug to long and flowing. Pair embellished pumps with a plainer dress, a plain pump with a busier dress. A black pump is classic and will match just about any dress color, but if you want to throw off your audience a bit, choose a fashion-forward pairing like a yellow one-shoulder dress with deep purple pumps.
Go retro and get fabulous in a flared dress that has as much swing as your strut. The flare of the skirt in combo with the knee-high boots make this a match made in fashion heaven. Go mod with white boots and choose a dress with a fun-loving pattern or design. Make sure the one sleeve is nice and billowy to give the dress maximum movement.
