Alexa Chung and Cara Delevingne opt for the high necked Victoriana blouse

Rock This Celeb-Approved Neckline for Spring

Thought a high neck was only for Winter? Think again ladies – spring 2015 is all about a demure and directional funnel neckline. 

This new obsession is being pioneered by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Cara Delevingne and Alexa Chung, with each rocking the trend in completely different ways. And we’re liking what we see!

Cara, like her achingly fash forward cohort Alexa, has gone down the Victoriana route with her top of choice. Think ruffles, cuffs, frills, lace collars and pretty-pretty 19thcentury shapes that almost skim the chin. Cara paired her bibbed front blouse with sharp black separates and tan shades, whereas Alexa slipped her modest lacy shirt underneath a pair of black dungarees for a downtime Downton look (see what we did there).


> Victoria Beckham and Laura Bailey take the high neckline to the red carpet


On the opposite end of the spectrum, the red carpet take on the trend is super structured and minimal. Victoria Beckham and Laura Bailey cut elegant shapes in their pristine white frocks, both of which featured higher-than-your-average necklines. Just add a pulled back updo, some defined cheekbones to give these gorgeous gals a run for their money. 

Luckily, the trend can be shopped on the high street right now too. If you’re going down the VB route, look for pared back designs in glossy, structured fabrics. This Jacquard high necked top will look gorgeous teamed with a waisted pencil skirt and heels, whereas flouncy vintage ruffling is amazing alongside tan accessories.

Phew, we were just wondering how we’d ever drag ourselves out of last season’s polo necks!
