Trend Alert: One-Shoulder Dresses
Celebs are giving the cold shoulder on the red carpet this season.

Hollywood fashion is a little crooked – and we wouldn’t have it any other way! The one-shoulder dress is back and celebs like Kim Kardashian, America Ferrera, Anne Hathaway, Zoe Saldana and Carrie Underwood have already jumped on the bandwagon.
Luckily, this elegant style is a breeze to pull off. You might want to keep your accessories to a minimum: chandelier earrings and a bracelet (or two) and carry a small clutch with your dress. If you do decide to go with an embellished dress, wear small-sized earrings as they don’t compete with the dress’s bling.
Small-busted women can play around with big bold embellished styles like Carrie Underwood’s. The bejeweled strap on the Xscape beaded one shoulder dress ($151, edressme.com) will gently frame a small bust. Add volume to your bust line with the ASOS one shoulder organza dress ($88.76, asos.com) or the horizontal pleated Laila organza one shoulder dress ($178.49, bluefly.com).
