By Butterboom Writers  /  July 10, 2009

For an ultra feminine and glamorous dress, check out the one shoulder dress.


Surely you’ve noticed by now that the one-shoulder trend is back and ruling the runways and store displays. Ever wonder where this silhouette hails from?

Interestingly enough, the one-shoulder style dates back to Ancient Rome to the  toga dress. This asymmetrical style was made famous in the seventies when American designer Halston, style maker and designer known for making effortlessly glamorous dresses during the Studio54 disco era created the draped jersey one-shoulder dress.

Today designers are picking up on the resurgence of the one-shoulder dress with Lanvin, Alberta Ferretti doing their own interpretation of the one-shoulder number last year.  Here are some of Butterboom’s pick from Chloe, Calvin Klein, Halston, Lanvin and Roksanda Illicic.
