How To Dress 15 Years Younger: It Suits You To A “V”

September 3, 2015 • Fashion, Fashion Blog

Deep-V, Not for everyone

When we first noticed the deep V trend several seasons ago on the runways at New York Fashion Week, Lauren and I were thinking,”Oh No!” Not because it doesn’t look stunning (it does), but it is certainly not for everyone (like this dress above) and we know how everyone wants wear the latest trend. V necklines are beautiful and they flatter most women. It makes a heavier woman look slimmer and gives some definition to a slim body. The problem is the designers saw a good thing … and went a little too far or shall we say, to the extreme with it.

Right now you will find “the deep V” on dresses, tops, sweaters and tunics in stores everywhere. Even if you no longer have the body of a 25 year-old to wear the trend (to the navel) the good new is you can still sport the look. Here are some great options.
