Single-Shouldered Dresses On A Budget

Watching the Golden Globes on Sunday night got me thinking about single-shouldered dresses. A lot of ladies showed off one shoulder looks, including this dress worn by Reese Witherspoon that made me want to achieve her subtle sassiness. Here are five options suitable for dressing down, for date night, or a fancy evening out! 1. One Shoulder Stud Dress, Wet Seal ($20, pictured). This flouncy denim dress is the perfect blend of girly and tomboy, with studs adorning the shoulder strap.

2. Rosette Sequin Dress, Forever 21 ($28). This black mini sequin dress with a big rosette is so Carrie Bradshaw on a student budget. Perfect for prom?

3. Brunch with Ms. America Dress, ModCloth ($75). As its name indicates, this pleat-detailed dress is perfectly pretty and proper in its soft neutral tones and classic fit.

4. Jodie Bow Dress, Delia*s ($50). It's party time in this iridescent violet mini with a bubble hem. The strap ties in one big bow!

5. Mossimo One Shoulder Dress, Target ($32). This will be your go-to dress for spring and summer; it's easy to wear, and comes in a great purple called "Phantom Grape." Oooo.
