Since the royal wedding in May, London label Galvan has seen two of its key dress styles fly out of stock, and the reason is all down the super-chic high-necked design. Unlike a plunging halterneck, high-necked designs have the effect of elongating your upper body and adding a polished, put-together feel to any outfit. Add a slinky fabric like satin or silk to the mix, and you’ve got a dress that’ll immediately elevate your wardrobe (and belie its price tag, even if you bagged it on the high-street).
Style Notes: Meghan’s not the only one who knows the power of a high-necked halterneck. Millie wore this slinky dress by bridal designer Kate Halfpenny during a chic vacay to Monaco.
Style Notes: Galvan’s sellout halterneck silk gown with a twisted neck dress is named the Pandora after Pandora Sykes, who wore a red version to the British Fashion Awards.
Style Notes: You’d be forgiven for thinking this dress was designer. In fact, Aimee Song bagged this £45 number from ASOS.
