Are you SO bored of tried and true styles? Do peacoats, pencil skirts and tailored trousers make you want to snooze? Then you must try tops and dresses with detailed necklines.

As a former DIY fashionista junkie (I practically evoked Molly Ringwald circa “Pretty in Pink” in high school, much to my sewing machine’s dismay) I really can appreciate a little something different now and then. Especially when that something is fabulous like these detailed neckline dresses.

Now this look isn’t for everyone, and it may even be a little hard to pull off, but don’t be afraid to try it out. Dresses with detailed straps like on Keira Knightley or even a crocheted top over a tank will add a little something different to your wardrobe.

If you love the idea of this strappy trend, then check out these looks from Charis Designs for a casual detailed inspired look:

    I absolutely love the detail of these dresses. I wore a dress similar in style to that of Thandie Newton’s and got the best simple pearl studs to go with it at premiumpearl.com

    It is really such a helpful website with timeless pieces that add to any look, and have a variety of jewelry (necklaces, earrings, and such) in wide price range, with some pieces even under $100! I would definitely suggest checking it out.

    Hey fashiongirl,

    It is most clear that you ARE premiumpearl.com NOT a customer of theirs. Don’t you think writing a testimonial for your own company is a little dishonest?

    If you want to be on other peoples’ blogs, why don’t you consider buying an advertisement. That would be the legal, ethical way to advertise. By simple spamming comment sections with fake testimonials are are the 2nd worst kind of internet predator – a spammer. Everybody hates a spammer and nobody who reads your fake testimonials is going to shop at PremiumPearl.com.
