With Spring fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about updating the Winter wardrobe with the newest designs. The trend of funky neckline shapes has returned with a vengeance. Whatever your body shape, there will be a neckline to fit you.
Spearheading the new wave of designer necklines are the likes of Missoni, Lanin and Roberto Cavalli to name just a few. You might be wondering why this trend has come back again, this is simply because it is flattering to the well toned, so if you’ve been hitting the gym this January, then an off the shoulder neckline will show off your newly toned body. Bringing off the shoulder and jewelled necklines back all lends itself to the move away from the more clichéd sensual look of showing cleavage or legs. Instead there is an undercurrent of sex appeal with an extra flourish of the dramatic.
With Cavalli’s latest collection, there is a range of necklines, colours and styles that will become staples in your wardrobe. Taking their inspiration from the fresh floral look, they offer vibrant colours which can work for both day and night. With the flowing style and exquisite colours, keep accessories to a minimum and go for the natural look. Another exciting range is by Lanvin, with a variety of dresses ideal for the office and after work cocktails. Lanvin has created some exceptional styles that will rejuvenate the ordinary work outfit.
Our favourite piece that we’ve seen so far this year is Lanvin’s detachable choker dress. Both the crystal choker and the belt are detachable so you can use them separately to jazz up another outfit and you can wear the dress with different accessories to give a whole new look for another occasion. As much as we love exceptional style, the practicality of this sheer black dress only adds to its appeal.
