Every Top I Want Right Now Has This Classic Neckline

Whether running errands, getting dressed for work, or planning my next evening look, jeans and a nice top is a formula that I—and I'm sure many of you—rely on. This combination has become such a staple that brands even began creating sections of their websites dedicated to this iconic pairing. As a dedicated alumni of the "jeans and a nice top" fan club, I spend a lot of time searching for the perfect top, and on my recent search, I found that every top I'm falling for right now has the same feature: a sweetheart neckline. 



The sweetheart neckline has never looked cooler. For a time, sweetheart necklines were mostly reserved for bridesmaid dresses, but a resurgence came when much-loved brand Khaite designed a sweetheart neckline top that almost all the fashion crowd had, or wanted. Whether featured on minimalist staples or patterned tops, the beauty of the neckline is that it's incredibly flattering and has an elegant feel in its classic design.

Alongside the traditional curved sweetheart neckline is the inverse sweetheart neckline. Instead of dipping at the cleavage, the inverse style curves upwards in the centre. Whichever style you choose, tops with the neckline have an expensive-looking feel whatever the price point. 

The inverse sweetheart neckline looks seriously premium.
