the revival of the square neckline

The revival of the square neckline has swiftly become the hottest neckline of current due to Amal Clooney's status as best dressed at the Royal wedding this weekend. 


The neckline has been in revival for a couple of seasons, with Grazia writing a piece on it back in September 2017 - 3 signs that this neckline will be the next big thing. It became the most talked about silhouette from fashion week in the Spring, appearing on the runways of designers like Carolina Herrera, Christian Dior, and Hermès, officially sealing its status as a full-blown trend.


But this month I have noticed the square neckline cropping up all over the place. Usually, when it comes to necklines, you have two options—it's either a round neck or V-neck. But now I keep spotting square necklines...


Reminiscent of the Renaissance, square necklines are alluring and versatile. While every fashion girl opted for an off-the-shoulder top all last year, I like how the new neckline is something fresh. Even pairing a square neckline with a simple pair of jeans elevates a basic look into something interesting. Less ubiquitous than off-the-shoulder styles, the square neckline is flattering, elegant, and feminine. Consider layering over a polo neck in winter or adding it into your weekend wardrobe in the form or a billowy cotton blouse. Or how about opting for a refreshing square-neck cocktail dress for your summer occasion party or ball? 

So I say YES to square necklines. It feels fresh, it feels new and this trend shows just enough skin to be flirty and feminine while its covered shoulders make it a doable option for the office. A true must-have, indeed.

my top 5 holiday must-haves

No matter where you are going on holiday, a staycation in the UK, a sun soaked vacay or a weekend city break, you always have to think about what to pack. 

Sticking to the same colour palette when packing makes life so much easier especially when adding in accessories such as bags, shoes and earrings. It also makes getting ready stress-free as your pieces blend together seamlessly, making you look chic and pulled together. 

Sticking to some holiday wardrobe rules that you can make for yourself, makes it easier to shop for future holidays. You can simply replace the pieces you've worn to death, add in a few extras for longer breaks and throw in a trend-led piece to keep your look up to date. By creating a list each year it ensures you don't go 'overboard' with your spending and therefore can't fit everything in your suitcase!

I've put together my go-to pieces that I am currently packing for my holiday and I wouldn't leave home without.

1. Playsuit - A staple in my holiday wardrobe. Great for putting over swimwear in the daytime and also for glamming up in the evening. I love I don't have to think about anything else apart from what I am wearing on my feet or what bag to take. My top picks are -

2. Statement dress - Something in a bright summer colour that is easily packed in my suitcase and makes me smile when I wear it, also looks great with a tan! My top picks are -

3. Sandals - Once you find a great pair of sandals you wear them til they are broken! This year I have fallen for &other stories sandals and cant' wait to put them on my feet on holiday. My top picks are -

4. Jacket for the evening - I find this the one item that when clients pack for holiday they often don't have or are undecided whether to take one. It is always wise to take one with you, or like me, I will be taking two as I love that they change my outfits up. My top picks are -

5. Holiday bag - This year I have focused on fun evening clutch bags to change up my outfits when going out for dinner. My picks are -
