Off Shoulder Dress - Blue
OFF SHOULDER DRESS BLUE
Flattering. Fun. Fresh.
We’re bringing together our signature blue fabric with our best-selling off-shoulder design and it’s a match made in heaven. Classic teal blue is popular as it’s flattering on every skin tone and eye colour. It pops on darker skin, and complements paler skin. And it’s especially gorgeous on blue eyed ladies, yet lovely on brown and green eyes too.
This really is a classic dress that gives you effortless style, flattering silhouette, breathable comfort and quality workmanship that will last you years.
Drop shoulder dressers are flattering to all shapes and sizes and ours is oh-so-feminine and pretty. The criss-cross bustline extends to the back for a gorgeous shape, and not one you see around often (if we do say so ourselves). The inverse vee-shape cut nips in under the bust which is often the narrowest part of your body. And we promise that the elastic shirring will never dig or cling too tight as long as you choose a true-to-shape size. If you have a long body, this cut is perfect as it adds much-needed proportion and lift and a short body - the elastic isn't too long so it doesn't cling to your tummy.
While we love the bare shoulders, it does pose a conundrum — what to do with the bra? If you’re not a fan of the strapless bra, you are not alone. But this dress gives a potential solution, with cross-over elastic that may be able to hold your girls in place. It depends of course on the size of your bust and how supported you like to feel. Strapless bras have improved a LOT these days so if you refused to wear one back in 2008 we implore you to give them another try.
This is the only one of our dresses without pockets for a reason: samples just made the fabric sag and the shape was impacted, so we sadly had to ditch the pockets. We don’t want any extra bulk at your waist with this cut. The single seam on the (left/right) side adds more movement to give it a lovely floaty feel without needing extra fabric.
As for the length, it is a longer cut from our collection. If you’re shorter (5”4 or under), it will fall to mid-calf and if you’re average height (over 5”4-5”6) it will fall below the knee. Taller friends (5”6 and higher) will see the hem raise higher again.
This is truly eye-catching, with a unique cut that you really can wear anywhere. Team it with thongs on the beach, sandals for a barbecue or a sparkly jacket or jewels for a night on the town.
