Bateau

Friday, January 20, 2012 12:03 AM


I love bateau necklines (also called a boat neck). They're flattering on so many women, but especially for those with thin necks like mine. I wanted a bateau neckline on my wedding dress but couldn't find anything. It didn't help that I also wanted a short dress, which limited my choices considerably to start with. I found my short dress, but it was strapless, which I had really wanted to avoid. Oh, well. If Kate Middleton really has inspired more dresses with straps and sleeves, there are many brides out there who will welcome it.

Looking at these pictures, I don't think the cropped blazer works with pants — at least not with work trousers. I'll try jeans, but I may have to limit this topper to pairings with skirts.
