Remember plunge-neck dresses? Well, there's a new neckline taking over the scene that's the complete opposite. It's buttoned-up as can be — and yet still totally chic, sexy, or whatever you want it to be. You heard it here first: The high-neck dress is the throw-it-on wardrobe staple you didn't know you needed.
Of course, this comes as no surprise considering all of the Batsheva-inspired frocks we've been obsessing over lately. But hear us out: The cut may feel prim and proper, but the styling possibilities are pretty much endless. Wear one over a pair of wide-leg trousers or frayed jeans for daytime, then dress it up with strappy heels and extra-large statement earrings for dressier occasions. And whether it's peeking out from underneath a belted trench or fuzzy cocoon coat (or worn solo with sandals come spring), we're already up to our necks (quite literally) in ways to wear this staple. So see ya later, décolletage — because we're riding 100% this wave in all its covered-up glory.
