Trend Alert: Asymmetrical Dresses

What: Style-watchers are all abuzz over the one-shoulder dresses cropping up on the red carpet as of late, on everyone from Drew Barrymore to Kate Bosworth to Penelope Cruz.

What the fashion heads say: This from “Stylist Philip Bloch considers the asymmetrical look an elegant, sophisticated one that flatters all body types: ‘By baring a shoulder, you can be sexy without being tawdry or cheap.’”

What I say: An asymmetrical dress is great way to showcase beautiful shoulders, especially now as we’re looking for fresh ways to dress for the still-warm weather. To get celebrity style without a celebrity bank account, start with this simple, feminine version from Banana Republic.
