How to Wrap your Convertible Dress into a One Shoulder Goddess Style

Posted

Today I am going to show you how to create the one shoulder. The one shoulder creates an asymmetrical look with your dress, and is flattering on all body types. If you are looking for a modest yet sophisticated style, the one shoulder can be a great option for you.

Please view the video as well as step by step instructions

ONE SHOULDER

1. Step into dress or place over head so that sashes are facing the front.

2. Bring both sashes over your right or left shoulder as desired and arrange so that sashes are overlapping one another (there should be no visible keyhole).

3. Right shoulder: Take your left hand and bring the left strap to the front, take your right hand and bring the right strap to the front (Reverse for left shoulder).

4. Bring the sashes down and around the waist and tie and/or tuck in front or back of dress.

You can also twist the straps of your one shoulder style and create another look.
