Trends We Love: High Necklines

For most of us, the warm summer months had us showing hints of our décolletage and wearing strappy tanks. As we’re transitioning into fall, we’re seeing a slightly more conservative look that has slowly been creeping into blogger looks and street style snaps. High necklines are taking center stage and are quite the opposite to the plunging necklines and lace-up tops we’ve been seeing this summer, but sexy nonetheless. This high neck-line silhouette has resurfaced from being outdated and matronly, to chic and sophisticated, and these blogger looks show us exactly how you can rock this trend.

Similar to what we said in our Off the Shoulder Tops feature, there’s something about bare shoulders that is super sexy, flattering, and a look that we love while not being overtly revealing. This crop top is the perfect floaty and feminine piece to pair with any bottom, from boyfriend jeans to trousers, to create an air of sophistication.

For a night out, you may be use to flaunting your curves, but it’s officially cool to wear a higher neckline. For your next evening out, try a high-neck sleeveless shift dress paired with heeled sandals. A demure silhouette with your perfectly bronzed limbs — you’ll get the best of both worlds!

Having a mockneck dress in your closet can save you time when you’re in a rush, but it’s also an ideal transition piece from summer to fall. Throw on a light jacket and some ankle boots and you’re all set! A mockneck dress is not overly conservative, and we also find that it’s really flattering as it slims and elongates your neck.

When in doubt, go with a monochromatic look! For a quick alternative to a tee and jeans, try pairing a high neck blouse with black trousers for a sleek look. The palette keeps the look modern, and pairing it with cool sandals and a hat will also give a cool edge to the outfit.

For a wedding or dinner party, a high neck dress is the perfect way to feel elegant and sophisticated. Make it less modest by baring your shoulders and also picking a bright color or a bold pattern to modernize it and make it more fun!

The high-neck trend is a must-try for everyone since it’s a perfect piece for pretty much anywhere. It’s a great choice for happy hour, the office (under a blazer), or a dinner party, making it a must-have for this season and for transitioning into the next.
