What are Bardot dresses?

A Bardot dress is widely known as an off-shoulder and is a style of women's dress characterised by a neckline that sits below the shoulders, to highlight the exposed collarbone and shoulders.

The name "Bardot" is derived from the French actress Brigitte Bardot, who was known for popularising this neckline style in the 1950s.

The stylish shape was an instant hit and has never really fallen out of favour over the years, with many styles still available today including here at Izabel London.

The Bardot neckline adds a touch of elegance and romance to an overall look, making it a favourite that many of us reach for time and time again. This classic off-the-shoulder is perfect for showing off decolletage and adding a fun, flirty look to any outfit.


Who should wear Bardot dresses?

Bardot dresses beautifully balance your shoulders with your hip, so are considered a flattering style on many figures and one that many women find flattering on their body shapes.

Bardot styles are typically bodycon or figure hugging, yet a Bardot cut can be found on skater-style dresses or even midi or maxi-length pieces too. The Bardot style is universally flattering, and can be worn confidently on all figures as well as being styled in the way they prefer.


When should I wear Bardot dresses?

A Bardot dress can be worn on a range of occasions from summer to winter, parties and events or even at the office if the dress code permits!

Whilst Bardot dresses are often associated with casual or summery looks, they can also be designed with more formal elements, such as lace and embellishment. Alternatively, they can be made from structured fabrics, making them suitable for dressier occasions.


How should I wear Bardot dresses? What pairs well with Bardot

Styling this kind of versatile dress comes with many different ways to dress it up or dress it down, depending on what look you’re going for.

Bardot dresses strike a balance between comfort and style, providing a trendy and feminine look. Pick a classic look with a monochrome style in black or white or stripes, and channel your inner Parisian chic. Or choose a bold or bright colour like pink, red or orange for a summery look that’s perfect for showing off sun-kissed skin and highlighting a summer holiday glow.

Your Bardot dress can be given a modern look with a denim or leather jacket, or you can give it a corporate edge with a blazer or simple cardigan. Bardot styles also look great dressed up or down with heels, ballet pumps or casual trainers too, so choose the footwear you’re most comfortable in for your final look.
