Move over off-the-shoulder tops! We're leaving that trend in 2016 where it belongs, ‘cause there’s a new darling in town that you're destined to want to add to your self-made wardrobe. It's time for trendy necklines to take centre stage. Say goodbye to simple scoops and Vs because this season statement necklines are big and trending! Last week it was the open-back trend, but now it’s the front of your pattern's turn to take the leading role.

You’re sure to see these new necklines literally everywhere! From blouses and tops paired with baggy jeans to 'big’ dresses with flamboyant details (pump up the volume!) – these necklines are stealing the show! And whether it’s a Scandi, Parisian, retro, or renaissance look, our answer is a resounding ‘yes’ to this hip trend. 

Special necklines had already made an appearance around 2019 in the Jacquemus, Bottega Veneta, Khaite collections, and even featured on a Proenza Schouler trench coat. But while we may already be well on our way through 2020, the true heyday of the square neckline was in the 16th century. Who would have thought that Renaissance trends would become part of the 2020 street scene? From now on, your love of The Tudors outfits is no longer limited to the realm of the imagination. Square necklines with statement puffed sleeves are here to stay on the catwalk, in the major chains, and on your Instagram feed.

Is eclectic your thing? Pair the neckline with bright colours and big sleeves. And is this trend on your DIY list? Great news! The Mindy dress is just what you’re looking for. Not sure if the square neckline is for you? Why not check out the style advice for your body shape here?
