Gimme a “V”…
Over the past several seasons, I’ve felt as though I’m wandering in a wilderness of high-necked tops and sweaters. As someone who is short, with broad shoulders and a full bust, I find a v-neck the easiest to style and most flattering neckline for me, but they’ve been a scarce commodity lately.
But this season, I’m noticing a lot more tops with v-necks. I don’t know whether it will turn out to be a broader trend (v-necks are more expensive to produce than crew necks) but it’s nice to have a bit more choice. If you’ve also on the lookout for v-neck styles, here are a few that have caught my eye.

This tunic-length sweater in Plus is cotton, so you’ll be able to wear it into Spring. I love this pretty periwinkle blue which will look smashing with white denim; it’s also offered in Charcoal and Pink.
This merino sweater is a nice piece for travel, as it works well on its own or underneath a jacket. I like (and have) the ivory (shown) but also offered in Claret (a burgundy color) and Hot Red. Misses, Petites and Plus sizes available.
Relaxed, but a step up from a plain tee. This top is also offered in a soft pink.
I was happy to see this shorter silk shell with a v-neck! It’s a perfect piece to layer under a jacket or cardigan and can work well skirts or fuller pants. The neckline is cut high enough to be well above the bra line, but still provides that nice v effect. Offered in Black and Bone. Longer version here.
