An off-the-shoulder wedding dress is effortlessly romantic, making it a perennial favorite with brides. This season, designers put a fresh spin on this go-to dress type with swaths of tulle (Sabrina Dahan), wispy sleeves that connect in the back (THEIA), and even a neckline covered completely in pearls (Lela Rose). We also spotted designs that combine both bare shoulders and long sleeves, adding sultry appeal to otherwise traditional gowns with allover lace throughout.

Best of all, the off-the-shoulder neckline can be adapted to fit a variety of different wedding styles. If you envision a classically elegant look, then shop for a dress with wider straps and structured fabric. 3-D floral details and scalloped effects add a feminine flourish while plunging necklines enhance curves. Boho brides, gowns in flowing fabrics and fluttery off-the-shoulder sleeves are calling your name.

Here, we've compiled some off-the-shoulder stunners you need to see.
