Whether on breezy blouses, cute crop tops or billowy maxi dresses, high necklines are super on-trend this season. With the right styling, they’re effortless to pull off. Ready to live the high-necked life? Check out our how-to-wear tips.
GO FOR BALANCE
Take a look at your high-necked top and balance the volume (or lack thereof) with your bottoms. For example, wear white skinny denim with a drapey, loose-fitting high-necked blouse in a pastel or bright shade. With a slim-fitting or cropped top, opt for wide-legged pants, a feminine circle skirt or a carefree maxi skirt.
ADD BIG EARRINGS
Statement earrings and an updo are a killer combination to complement a high-necked dress or top in a bold print or pattern. Think oversized hoops, colorful teardrop-shaped gems or bold geometric dangles matched with a slicked-back bun, a loose topknot or a sideswept braid.
ROCK A NECKLACE
A mid-length or long pendant is right-on for a high neckline and can add some personality to a solid-colored high-necked top or frock. For a high-impact look—perfect for a bachelorette party or a big night out—try a fringe bib necklace.
SKIP THE JACKET
Layering a blazer over a high neckline can look more buttoned-up than you bargained for. A military-styled vest or scarf wrap is a sweet way to layer on some extra warmth without hiding your super-strong shoulders and arms, which a high neckline is all about showing off.
