Every woman wants to look attractive and feminine, and a beautiful dress is one of the items that can help them achieve this. A lot of fashionistas always want to know what dresses are trending each year.
In 2017-2018 season, the leading designers inspired to bring back the retro styles of the fifties. They designed a lot of dresses with open shoulders and made them come back in style. A lot of trendy styles were also made using Ankara.
The dresses of 2017-2018 were inspired by femininity, lightness and a refined look; the length of the dresses also vary. The shorter dresses emphasize slender legs, and the longer ones come with numerous voluminous folds, creating a unique image.
Off shoulder Ankara gowns are of different types; they can be made with thin straps, made to be tied at the back or completely without them. Such dresses can also have a corset. The necklines could be semicircular, V-shaped or in the form of a heart. An open dress with a decorative collar looks excellent, especially when worn with beautiful accessories or decorated with beads and sequins to give a special charm and coquetry.
Bright Ankara fabrics are well suited for hot weather. Lace, frills, guipure and cape can also be added to Ankara dresses with open shoulders for a more dramatic look.
Dresses with frills and a nice belt that emphasizes a slender waistline look really beautiful too.
Gowns with open shoulders look fashionable and stylish, but there is one tiny problem – this style does not suit every girl. The beauty of open shoulder dresses usually depends on the figure of a woman; when chosen without consideration of this factor, it could look tasteless and ridiculous.
Off shoulder gowns made with Ankara are an inalienable attribute of all feminine designs – romantic, boho, new look, etc.
To choose a dress of this style, you need to take into account the characteristics of your figure. It does not suit girls with broad shoulders because it tends to visually increase this part of the body. On the contrary, for girls who have narrow shoulders, especially with the “pear” type of figure, such a dress will be an excellent find.
At the same time, for short and plump girls it can do a disservice, creating a “barrel” effect (in this case it is recommended to choose styles with sleeves and a small neckline). Plump ladies should not wear short attires. Beautiful floor length dresses or midi length dresses are a better option.
A tight silhouette is good for girls with an ideal figure. Otherwise, choose a free tailored dress or a tR@pezoid shaped gown.
Off shoulder dresses also have another effect – it visually lengthens the neck and draws attention to it. However, if some age-related skin defects are present, it can have a negative effect, and this is worth considering when choosing this style.
TYPES OF UNIQUE ANKARA OFF SHOULDER STYLES
Dresses with flounces below the shoulder line are one of the trendiest styles this season. It is distinguished by its subtleness, playfulness and absolute femininity.
ON THE ELASTIC BAND
This timeless model is an excellent choice for people who are going for a boho look, especially if you complement it with accessories made of leather and suede.
The dress version without sleeves also allows you to accessorize with a lot of bracelets and baubles. Besides, a dress with a short skirt is perfectly combined with cowboy-style boots.
Beautiful Ankara styles with sleeves look very refined, especially if the décolleté is deep enough. At the same time, the choice of a small décolleté allows older women achieve the desired effect without having to worry about stressing age-related skin imperfections on the neck and chest.
A straight dress is an excellent solution for plump women and those with apple figures because it does not draw emphasis to the weight or the extra fat around the mid areas of a woman’s body. These straight dresses should not be made above the knee, as long dresses are better to visually increase your height.
Such styles create a truly romantic image. It is a perfect choice for a date or leisure activities. However, such a dress can be very frivolous on an aged woman.
A case dress with open shoulders is a traditional evening dress. It’s quite universal and very popular everywhere.
An off shoulder dress with straps intertwined or tied behind the neck is a very impressive design; it is also a top trend of 2017 because it looks very stylish and trendy. But girls with broad shoulders should refrain from this style. It emphasizes the shoulders more than any other dress design.
At the same time, the vertical balance of symmetry achieved from wearing alternate styles besides strapless dresses, make them suitable for every kind of figure.
ON ONE SHOULDER

LENGTH OF ANKARA OFF SHOULDER GOWNS 2017-2018
A long dress is a classic choice for evening attires. A style with open shoulders brings more royalty and femininity to your look.
A long and very loose dress should not be worn by short girls, even though it is a nice choice for hot weather. In this case, preference is best given to styles of medium length or with a narrowed skirt to the floor (as an evening version), which visually extends the legs.
Medium length dresses are good for ladies with a “rectangle” type of figure. It is however universal and suits almost every other body type. The main thing is, do not forget to pay attention to the cut details, ensure that they emphasize your good sides, diverting attention from your flaws.
