Straps and sleeves were once considered the practical and comfortable choice, but new designs are reintroducing them as a fashion-forward alternative.

SimplyBridal.com is the place to check out exquisite dresses and veils at competitive prices. In 2012, shoulder styles have emerged as a focal point in women’s fashion. SimplyBridal is announcing its pick of four bridal styles that highlight the shoulders.
“Strapless gowns will always be popular, because they are flattering on most women,” media contact Harper Butler said. “Straps and sleeves were once considered the practical and comfortable choice, but new designs are reintroducing them as a fashion-forward alternative.”
1. Cap Sleeves
Cap sleeves are thought to be particularly romantic; they are often made of chiffon or lace. These wispy pieces of fabric cover the shoulders and especially compliment women with thin shoulders since they give the appearance of wider shoulders without widening the chest.
2. Lace Sleeves
The lace sleeves officially arrived when Bella Swan, Kate Middleton, and Lauren Bush all wore them in 2011. Lace sleeves are usually the main accent piece in wedding gowns. Since the sleeves are often form fitting, they are best for women with women with slim or even thin arms.
3. Off-the-shoulder Neckline
Like the name suggests, this style features straps or sleeves that hang off the shoulder. This is a sensual and elegant style that emphasizes shoulders and collar bones. Both Adele and Christina Hendricks often wear this sleeve style and it looks great on full-figured women.
The asymmetrical or one-shoulder dress is modern and chic. It can be edgy and minimalistic or softened with the addition of ruffles or floral decoration on the strap. This is a wonderful style for women who are proud of their toned arms and chiseled collarbones.
