Here at Who What Wear, we fancy ourselves as somewhat experts when it comes to spotting microtrends. The kind of looks that are distinguished by something as small as the texture of a fabric or the placement of a button.
In the past, we've waxed poetic on microtrends ranging from countryside prints to statement embroidered cardigans, though this winter there seems to be a new, subtler trend on the block. From designer to high-street, sweetheart neckline knits are gaining quite the fashionable fanbase right now with influencers across the globe embracing the flattering silhouette. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it kind of detail but manages to instantly elevate a winter knit, bringing a modern, contemporary element to the item.
Of course, as with most trends, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore it first. The model was seen in this chic silhouette late last year, wearing a top by buzzy It label Khaite. The New York-based brand can be credited for reigniting the popularity of this cut, as Khaite debuted a series of looks featuring this very specific silhouette on its Spring 2020 runway. Since then labels including & Other Stories, Zara and Mango have all championed the look, making it a key staple in the wardrobes of chic women this winter.
