We already know that this upcoming fall season is going to stun your wardrobe with intense and dramatic hues, but before we jump off the summertime deep end into autumn, we still have some time to enjoy the warm weather! So, before we “race” into layers, be sure to “sport” these chicly cut necklines!
Blame it on the sporty look and feel of our American Apparel tanks we’ve been repeating all summer, but a racer-front neckline is the perfect way to counter casual with elegant. As it draws attention to your face, the sports inspired edge of this trendy neckline refreshingly adds a sexy twist that avoids full frontal cleavage.
This Cheap Monday 90’s inspired racer front dress creates amazing lines and is super easy to wear. Try this dress from NastyGal.com with lace up platforms, statement cuffs and rings. If paired with chunky shoes and thicker accessories, you can achieve a Pre-Fall look in this dress before long sleeves and jackets are necessary.
Also similarly at NastyGal.com is the crop-top version of this dress available in black and nude. Try pairing this with a bright bandage skirt to achieve a sleek color-blocked look for a night on the town.
