Style File: One Shoulder Wonders


It was the evening of the Academy Awards in February and one of my favorite Bloggers/Twitizens, Afrobella, sent out a tweet that asymmetrical dresses were very much in style, and that she expected to see plenty of them on the red carpet. Sure enough, everyone from Marissa Tomei, to Queen Latifah, to Kate Winslet took to the red carpet in gorgeous one shoulder gowns.

This is a perfect trend to try this summer, and there are lots of options for plus size fashionistas to choose from, whether they want to go glam in a show-stopping gown (hint: might be perfect for the Finale of Full Figured Fashion Week) or you want to go more edgy with jeans and gladiator sandals (hint: might be the perfect ensemble for the FFF Week Welcome party at ReDress). Either way, this trend seems to be here to stay.

Here are some of our picks to make you a One Shoulder Wonder this summer:

ing one shoulder top
Ing Plus Size One-Shoulder Color Blocked Top

Black Dolman Sleeve One-Shoulder Top


Merona Plus One-Shoulder Dress


Tadashi Plus Size Black One-Shoulder Jersey Dress

What do you think ladies? Is the asymetrical, one shoulder look a trend you are considering for Summer 2009?
