If you’ve just purchased a new spaghetti strap dress, you might be wondering about the best way to style that new addition to your wardrobe. The truth is, there are countless ways to style a dress like this and the way that you wear it can make it appropriate for just about any occasion. Keep reading to learn four fashionable ways people are wearing spaghetti strap dresses this year.

Over a Loose T-Shirt

You might hesitate to wear your spaghetti strap dress over another top—but you shouldn’t! Wearing innerwear as outerwear is a hot new trend, and you can totally jump on that trend with this simple way of styling your spaghetti strap gowns. Throw on a coordinating blouse or T-shirt under your dress to instantly dress it down for a more casual occasion. A white tee always works well, but use your creativity and sense of style as much as you desire here!

If you have a solid dress in a neutral color, don’t be afraid to choose a blouse with patterns and colors. On the other hand, if your dress is brightly colored and has a floral print, a nice, neutral shirt underneath it will really help those patterns pop.

Over an Off-the-Shoulder Top

Now, you might be thinking, “Why would I get a spaghetti strap dress just to cover my shoulders with a T-shirt?” If you feel that way, here’s another option for you: Layer it over an off-the-shoulder top instead. This creates the same trendy, layered look, but it allows you to show off your shoulders still. Additionally, this pairing creates really unique, geometric lines in your outfit that catch the eye and turn heads. The vertical straps of your dress provide contrast and composition to your overall look when paired with the horizontal neckline of an off-the-shoulder top.

If you love the layered look, but you also want to show a bit more skin, look for spaghetti strap dresses that have side slits or a short hemline to balance out the coverage on your torso.

Under a Blazer or Cardigan

Looking to dress up your dress a little bit for a more upscale affair? You can easily do this by topping it with a blazer or nice cardigan. These clothing items cover up some of the skin shown by a spaghetti strap, making it more appropriate for a wider range of events, while still retaining some of the inherent sex appeal of this piece of clothing.

Just how dressed-up your dress will be will depend on the exact blazer or cardigan you choose to pair it with. If you choose a slouchy, relaxed-knit cardigan, you’re all set for a more casual night out. If you put on a blazer from a suit or a high-class silk cardigan, you’re ready for a more formal event. It all depends on how you pair it!

Flying Solo

Of course, you can always wear your spaghetti strap without any other clothing over or under it! This allows you to flaunt those shoulders and your neckline without any interference, and you can take full advantage of your dress’s natural sex appeal. Of course, there are numerous styles of spaghetti strap dresses, so you have to use your best judgment to determine if your dress is appropriate for your upcoming event or night out all on its own. But however you style your dress, wear it with confidence, and you’ll be sure to turn heads!
