Call us old-fashioned, but with all the talk surrounding Cara Delevingne and her #FreeTheNipple campaign, we’ve been wondering: whatever happened to a simple (tasteful) showing of the cleavage? In the right setting (not work), among the right individuals (not your co-workers), a bit of décolletage can be downright delightful.
As such, we deduced the best three ways to embrace a daring neckline, and provided plenty of shopping suggestions along the way.
Pencey Geo Print Deep V Dress ($225)
Go Grecian like Jessica Stein of Tuula Vintage in this boldly printed frock.
Theyskens’ Theory Fabby Didier Dress ($218)
The beauty of this design is in the simplicity.

In the dog days of summer, this breezy tank will be your go-to top.
Nasty Gal Down Low Bustier Top ($38)
This bold top is guaranteed to get attention.
Solace London Plunge Neck Shift Dress ($91)
The below-the-knee hemline balances the plunging neckline.
Mason By Michelle Mason Deep-V Lace Cami ($298)
A lace border sweetens a sultry neckline.
Equipment Knox Experimental Stripe Blouse ($195)
We already have this top in the traditional button-up version, but now we think we need the lace-up iteration too!

We recommend a little wardrobe tape to accompany this revealing top

This might just be the most flattering pick of the bunch.
