Correct qualifications of an off-shoulder dress
- The sleeves must be attached to the dress.
- A low and wide-cut neckline exposing the shoulders and upper chest area must be present in the dress design.
- Any dress that simply exposes the shoulders (strapless, sleeveless, or single-shoulder dresses) without the correct qualifications above.
- A jacket or coat is worn along with a dress is worn hanging off the arms, but the dress itself does not fit the above criteria that qualifies it as an off-shoulder dress (ie. post #4842407, post #5056599, post #4946909, post #4590647, post #4462891, etc.). Those should be tagged just off shoulder instead.
- A strapless or sleeveless dress is worn with detached sleeves or elbow gloves.
- A sleeveless dress that has strap slip.
- This tag is not meant as a "catch-all" tag for any dresses that simply exposes the bare shoulders.
