High-Neck Dresses for Fall

We love a good high-heck around here. There is something about a turtle or a mock neck that gives an air of having things under control. It is a very elegant neckline for those whose body structure can pull it off.

Elegant Fall Dresses

It is much easier to create an elegant look in the fall than in summer or winter because the weather makes it more comfortable to have a more balanced look. It is more comfortable to wear a long sleeve with a short hemline when you’re not worried about sweating through your clothes. Additionally, the cooler temps makes wearing heavier, more structured fabrics more comfortable too.
