We're not sure what was more enticing about the dresses at this year's Golden Globe awards: the mesmerizing colors or the clear penchant for one-shouldered styles. The arm-baring cuts appeared on everyone form Julia Stiles and Mila Kunis to Megan Fox and Nicole Kidman, in a variety of designs that ranged from subtly sexy to outright dramatic.
Though there are casual versions of the one-shoulder dress, it does ultimately lend itself best to a special occasion - say, a red carpet event or, failing that, a dressy party. Make like a movie star and slip into one of these glamorous finds:
Out-of-this-world glamorous is one way to describe this Adrianna Papell Beaded One Shoulder Jersey Sheath Dress ($138). Soft, elegant and accented by a panel of gleaming tonal beads along the side, this sleek dress accentuates the figure beautifully and requires very little in the accessory department.
Definitely intriguing, and certainly not for the timid, this elegant BCBGMAXAZRIA Belted One Shoulder Dress ($130) is crafted of luxurious grayish-mauve silk and cinched at the waist with a striking, jewel-embellished belt. Even more beguiling? The softly draped, flowing sleeve.
If you've got it, flaunt it - preferably in this Eliza J One Shoulder Sheath Dress ($88.90). Affordable and stunning, this mesmerizing dress features strategic folds and ruching from its draped shoulder to its sleek skirt to form a beautiful silhouette. This unforgettable number is sure to turn heads!
