Ever since I was a little girl, I have followed bridal fashion and trends closely. Truth be told, my mom wouldn’t let me read any of the teen magazines at the grocery store, so I always bought wedding magazines! I don’t know if it’s the hopeless romantic in me, or simply the fact that I would love to wear a ball gown every day, but regardless, the elegant whimsy of the bridal gown world gets to me like nothing else!
One trend I’ve been seeing over and over again over the past year or so is the illusion neckline. While I lean heavily towards the timeless, classic gowns, I adore this new, modern accent! There’s something about it that adds an instant pop of “pretty” to any piece.
To make this elegant neckline a bit more casual, I paired the blouse with my favorite denim skirt and a pair of wedges. This top would also look gorgeous tucked into dark wash jeans and heeled riding boots, or paired with a ladylike skirt.
All I know is, I love this attainable take on the sheer illusion neckline, and hope we see more of it this season!
