ALL IN THE DETAILS: Skyhigh Neckline

One of my favorite popular trends right now is the high neckline on tops and dresses. It’s a simple way to make an outfit look more sophisticated and classy or just a bit edgy and unique. It can elongate your neck to make you look elegant and looks awesome in a fun print or as a solid color background for a bold statement necklace. If you work it right, it’s a trend that’s flattering on any body type as well.

I love this Fashionista’s black and white look. Her striped tank top is perfectly paired with mid-length denim shorts. Her cute strappy shoes are the perfect touch to her simple but chic look. It’s obvious that this is a pretty casual look, but the high neckline makes it a little bit nicer than just a typical tank top and shorts outfit. It’s appropriate for more events than a low cut, thin-strap tank. You can even dress it up for work with a sleek blazer. Another great thing about this trend is that you won’t need to heavily accessorize because the high neckline in itself is a pretty unique accessory.

How To: Go after this trend with a dramatic look like a black sheath dress or go for the cool girl look in a Brandy Melville halter top paired with acid wash boyfriend jeans. Try a patterned look like this Fashionista, or if you’re more of a solid color gal, go with a more basic look and pair with a colorful statement necklace.
