The current off the shoulder button down dress trend will never fade away.  I believe that Bridgette Bardot made this type of flattering neckline and off shoulder dress well known back in her day.  Some people would name this as Bardot dress.  And it’s one of the hottest looks for summer and spring seasons.  It can be styled in different ways and it can be paired with different pieces.  

An off the shoulder style construction is elegant yet it can still show off your flirty shoulders.  This buttoned dress is just below mid-length and it’s so flattering to any body shape.

It’s made out of a linen fabric.  And it comes with big round buttons accentuating the shape and style of this dress.  As you can see this dress is almost like a maxi dress on me because I’m quite short but this is, in fact, a midi dress for those who are taller than me.

I love the fact that this dress is extremely lightweight and breezy enough for the summer.  I wore this all day long, and I didn’t feel like I was suffocating in my own sweat while walking around.  This is because the fabric of this dress is very lightweight and airy.

2. How To Wear Off Shoulder Dress With A Belt?

This light pink off the shoulder dress already came with a fabric belt.  This is quite a loose dress if worn without a belt, so I made sure to wear the fabric belt to accentuate my body shape.  

I personally don’t like a very loose off the shoulder dress that comes off a very straight cut.  So if you’re like me you can always add with different types of a belt to give it a different look an shape.

Adding a belt on an off the shoulder dress can also make you look slimmer around the waistline.  But I emphasize the fact that you must not tighten the belt too tight, and not wear a thick elasticated belt because it can sometimes create a bulging stomach between the belt.

I think you should be able to imagine what I am trying to explain about having a bulging stomach from wearing a thick elasticated belt around your dress or skirt.

This situation has had happened to me back in 2011 when I went on another trip to Europe.  I wore one of my thick elasticated belts around my semi-tight fitted dress, and I didn’t notice that my stomach was bulging just below my belt.  That was a bad idea because it was pretty obvious on photos.

I’ve always struggled with my stomach issues.  I’ve never had a very flat or toned stomach so I’m always careful of the types of, belt, dresses, skirts, pants, and tops I wear.

I’ve been so obsessed with pairing my off the shoulder dress and tops with a rattan crossbody bag.  A rattan bag is a perfect statement to wear in the summer.  It gives you that bohemian chic appearance. 

A rattan bag has become a trend in the last few years.  I don’t always follow trends in every outfit and accessory, but if there’s something that I really like, then you’ll see me wearing them in almost all of my outfits.

As far as I can remember, growing up I’ve always been into fashion and saw rattan bags (straw or basket bags) all over magazines and even on TV, but I was never fascinated with these types of accessories.  I only became obsessed about these type of bags lately.

I also noticed that during my last trip back to Europe, I saw many travelers, tourists and even locals wearing them with their stylish outfits.

Straw bags are everywhere, especially in Marrakech, and Bali.  In fact, after digging and researching more history and behind the trend of these basket bags, Jane Birkin was actually the first lady who invented the basket trend (quote me if I’m wrong) in the late 70s.  She was apparently spotted by photographers all over Paris wearing her small basket bag as her handbag and little did she know that it became well known.  

I’m not 100% sure if that’s accurate.  I remember seeing farmers have been using different types of basket bags when harvesting fruits, and vegetables.  Back then it was a very common bag for villagers and farmers.  These days straw bags or basket bags (whatever you may call it) have become such an iconic or statement piece in every woman’s accessory wardrobe.

I just can’t get enough of straw bags, why not see several other colors, shapes, and styles here to choose from.

4. How To Wear Off Shoulder Dress With Flat Sandals

I’m obsessed with wearing flat sandals or even those ballet flat shoes with my dresses in the summer.  

You can obviously pair any shoes with an off the shoulder dress depending on the style you’re aiming for.  If you’re out on a special event at night or a date night why not pair it with a sexy pair of heels.

Those flat sandals I paired with my light pink off the shoulder dress are made with a breathable suede lining, slightly cushioned insole, rubber outsole, and faux leather upper strap. 

Those were extremely comfortable for walking and also breathable.  It was such a hot holiday, and as always whenever I travel and sightsee I wear flats and I always sweat from top to bottom (yes, include the sole of my feet), but wearing those sandals made it even more comfortable and breathable in the hot weather.

I wore a headscarf by using my light and thin fabric scarf to accessorize my hair with my off the shoulder dress. I think the appearance kinda looked unintentionally bohemian chic traveling and sightseeing carelessly.

Wearing a head wrap also was a breeze because my hair wasn’t getting in the way in my shoulders, neck, and face.

The color of my headscarf also kinda matches with my light pink off the shoulder dress and the rest of my accessories.

In the summertime, why not tie your hair using a head wrap or just wear it as a headband to accentuate and accessorize your style. 

Here are some really light fabric scarves and headwraps that I definitely think would go well with your off the shoulder dresses.
