What is an off the shoulder dress?!
Off the shoulder, dresses are a style of clothing that is not generally kept up with shoulder straps or any other visible support. The tightness of the upper body or no-slip strips prevents the dress from slipping down and falling off. Off the shoulder pieces often have sleeves. Occasionally due to the evolving style of off the shoulder pieces halter straps or lace-up straps may be present at the neckline or shoulders.
