15 Reasons To Get-On Board With The High-Neck Dress

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. So see ya later, décolletage — because we're riding 100% this wave in all its covered-up glory.
