Off the shoulder dresses are everywhere this summer. An exposed décolletage and bare shoulders is one of the most elegant ways to show off glowing, sun-kissed skin so they're perfect for this time of year. From dramatic ruffles, lace frills and puffy sleeves to cold shoulder cut-outs, slouchy boat necks and ruched peasant-style necklines, there are so many different styles around at the moment. Here are eighteen of my favourites.
