STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Neck-st Big Thing

July 28th, 2015 at 2:00am

What makes a good Fashionista is keeping up with the trends to look cool and relevant, but what makes a fantastic Fashionista is keeping up with the trends and manipulating them to make herself look top-notch. Not everyone can pull off every style or color that is put out on the runways, in stores or on blogs for everyone to see. Having style means you know how to pull off those trends without a hitch.

High necklines have recently made their way onto the runways, like the Balmain spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection, and into stores and boutiques all over, plus they’re as flattering as it comes; this neckline gives any outfit a chic (although conservative) flare.

Pulling off this look does not take much effort as this Fashionista is wearing a high neckline dress that is casual, but also just elegant enough to wear on a date. She accessorizes minimally, putting all the focus on the dress. Not pairing a necklace with this neckline is essential to put the focus on other simple jewelry pieces. This trend can also be done in an edgy way by adding a leather jacket and a pair of minimal heels which will add just enough to change this look from sugar to spice. High necklines are versatile and no matter what color or pattern, dress or top, they make a statement, and how you choose to rock them depends on your personal style.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I pick outfits that flatter me and I love the high neckline trend because I think it looks good on me. You should always dress for your body type and what feels right.”
