I almost always wear round, close-fitting necklines. Zip through a dozen posts; you will rarely see a v-neck, scoop neck or bateau. Round is my comfort zone and, I hope, a flattering shape for my face and frame. But a friend of mine has often exhorted me to try more décolleté necklines.
I have listened to you, Desh!
So unlike me! Not just a v-neck, but a deep v-neck. I am not sure about it, but I thought this black floral was very charming.
The flowers are pretty realistic (i.e., not abstract or impressionistic), but they look so dreamy against the black background — like bouquets dropped into infinity.
Rebecca Taylor used this floral print in many blouses and dresses this summer and they are all on sale right now, extra 30% off.
The severity of the neckline is balanced by the lively peplum.
I’ve worn this for work with slim black pants and black flats, but I think it works casually with white pants and red sandals.
Have a fantastic weekend!
