The bare shoulder look has been a trend for tops and dresses in everyday looks all year, but now the “cold-shoulder” look is hotter than ever in the bridal world. We’re anticipating a lot more brides will be trading in their cold feet for cold shoulders (or off-the-shoulders). If you love this trend as much as we do, here are a few gowns you may want to check out.


Stella York – 6242

This lace and tulle gown is complete with intricate details that are subtle enough for the most refined bride. The off-the-shoulder trend is achieved with draped lace straps that perfectly finish the sweetheart neckline.

This gown is available for order from De La Rosa’s Bridal & Tuxedo in ivory, almond or white.
319 East Bidwell Street in Folsom

Maggie Sottero – Saxton

This Maggie Sottero gown is the epitome of elegant. The classic chiffon sheath gown is taken to another level with a ruched bodice, Swarovski crystal and pearl details, and of course, crystal cold-shoulder sleeves, which truly capture the romantic nature of the trend. We love the versatility of the detachable train (sold separately). Available for order at House of Fashion Bridal.

Maggie Sottero – Ettiene

On-trend sophistication is not easy, but Maggie Sottero makes it look effortless with this beaded gown. Embroidered lace on tulle gives this fit and flare gown beautiful details, and the lace and crystal cold-shoulder sleeves show just enough skin.

Available for order from The Bridal Box
