One-shoulder gowns not only create a sense of glamour, but also highlight your bone structure around your decolletage. Seductive or sweet, these styles can go from the garden to the ballroom.

A dramatic slit and bejeweled belt make this Atelier Aimee gown a complete show-stopper. Keep jewelry minimal when wearing this gown; the dress says enough on its own.

A dramatic patterned gown from Carolina Herrera is incredibly luxurious thanks to its one oversized sleeve (we love it with the deep red bouquet, too!).

An uber-stylized bustle and a solo black strap make this dress from Enzoani appropriate for the most formal of nuptials only. Try accessorizing with a solo cuff to add a bit of edge to the look.

This modern gown from Priscilla of Boston's latest line, Jewel, has oragami-inspired pleats and a carved out waist to flatter any figure.

Lace is anything but sweet on this Jim Hjelm dress when combined with a deep sweetheart neckline that's only emphasized further by the shoulder strap.

You'll feel like a princess in this two-tiered gown from Junko Yoshioka thanks to the oversized floral detail on the shoulder.

Perefct for a brunch (or daytime) affair, this tea-length gown from Justin Alexander is chic and adorable when paired with peep-toe heels and a few sparkling accessories.

This draped, Grecian-inspired gown from Marchesa is just as beautiful for a red carpet-inspired wedding as it is seaside with just close family and friends.

A trumpet-style gown from Randi Rahm gets an ethereal touch with its tulle-bow strap.
