The Ruffled Neckline
This feminine style speaks volumes – literally. A big trend on the Spring 2013 runways, the key to rocking this neckline is to let the focus fall on the ruffles by keeping accessories to a minimum. Skip the necklace and opt instead for a thin, minimalist bracelet.

The Braided Collar
More subtle than a studded or embellished collar, a braided neckline is effortlessly chic. Adding visual intrigue to otherwise simple tops, you can again skip the jewelry with this look. Simply throw your hair up in a topknot to really show off the intricate detail.

The Tie Neck
Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot with this girly take on a masculine style. Sexy and feminine without being too revealing, the tie-neck blouse can stand alone or be worn under a blazer for work. Just make sure you tie the bow the right way.
