FALL '16 FASHION WEEK RECAP: THE DEEP V-NECK

FALL '16 FASHION WEEK RECAP: THE DEEP V-NECK

Why do I love this trend for petite pears?

  • The Deep V-neckline - As a petite pear I have a small bust and there are times when I want to accentuate what I do have. I find V-necklines to be very flattering. This was a trend I spotted on the Spring runways and have seen it continue into Fall.

Wowwww! This dress look so stunning! The white immediately grabs your attention. I appreciate that this dress is long-sleeved because it makes it a little more modest for those who find this trend daring.

This version of the deep v-neck is more understated. The beading on this dress is beautiful and seems great for summer.

This all-over leather deep v-neck dress looks edgy yet sophisticated.  The front zipper detail adds some drama. I would probably wear this dress with stilettos or pumps to show a little more leg so the dress wouldn't overwhelm my frame.

This dress from Rebecca Taylor is another example of a more casual version of this trend. The studs along the neckline and waist are a fun detail!

Participating in the deep V-neck trend doesn't mean you have to bare it all! The designer used mesh illusion fabric with the v-neckline to provide more coverage. I love the mesh insets on the bodice of this dress.

Black & gold is one of my favorite color combinations. I love that this dress is belted to provide waist definition. The flared skirt would compliment the curvy hips of a petite pear well.

I cannot get over how gorgeous the color of this dress is! I love the choker necklace because it highlights the drama of the deep V-neckline.

The black & emerald green color combination of this dress really pops! I love that it has a clearly defined wide waistband & A-line skirt.
