Although high neckline and Victorian inspired collars may have made a grand appearance on last season’s runways, the Fall 2017 catwalks are pointing toward a change in trend. For the season ahead, the deep V-neckline is set to make an entrance, with an emphasis on vampy décolletage on display. If you’re wondering how to wear the plunging neckline look, we’ve curated a few styles from the runways to inspire your own look of the day.
For a more professional spin on the trend, draw your inspiration from the Self-Portrait runway. We are liking this take on the deep V, which features a navy blue lace blouse with cold shoulder sleeves. The plunging neckline may be seductive on its own, but the look of high-waisted black trousers helps to complete the overall ensemble. Meanwhile, the light pink velvet booties contrast against the darker, more neutral tones in the outfit.
If you’re wondering how to layer up necklines so you aren’t showing too much skin, draw your attention to the Zimmerman catwalk. Try pairing a lightweight pale pink turtleneck with a long floral print dress with flowing long sleeves and a flirty hem. Add beige booties and oversized earrings, and prepare to stun with your ethereal fashion statement.
For a more daytime and work-appropriate take on the V-neckline, think of a higher V which conceals the cleavage and isn’t as revealing. Think of a sleek black leather jumpsuit, as spotted at Rachel Comey. Add a jacket or blazer over, and slip into a pair of shiny black loafers. For a finishing touch, a gleaming neckpiece brings the look together and adds a hint of much-needed sparkle.
