5 Head-Turning High Neck Dresses

I love the high neck dress look. It keeps you looking mysterious while allowing you to accentuate your face. Whether you wear your hair in a messy bun, sleek ponytail, or like Gisele’s beach hair, this style of dress rocks the house! Who could forget Sharon Stone’s white sexy number in Basic Instinct? That dress floored every man and every woman who watched that movie.

My first pick is an affordable casual grey flippy tunic. It’s absolutely comfortable and it will look flattering on all body types. Although this dress is casual, you can always play it up with hoop earrings and give yourself JLo flair.

Staying on the more casual end of the spectrum, check out this turtleneck dress from American Apparel. It comes in an array of colors and its fabric combination makes it a no fuss dress. This is a great quick pick to wear under an embellished jacket or blazer.

Moving towards a dressier option, this black Theory dress is sophisticated and beyond versatile. The capped sleeves and the knee length make it work appropriate, and with the right shoes you can definitely feel sexy in this number in the evening.

If you want a longer version of the previous dress, then this next showcase is for you and it is reversible. Usually reversible is cheesy and doesn’t appeal to me, but for this style dress it is perfect! The two colors are heather grey and black. How could you go wrong having this sassy thing in two colors for the price of one? This elegant look is never a let down.

Sometimes color helps put a style into perspective. Since purple goes a long way, this next showcase is excellent and pairs lovely with spring’s floral explosion trends. It isn’t quite a turtleneck dress, but the high neckline gives it the alluring look we crave. The color and the snug fit make this an amazing choice, especially if paired with some strappy sandals.
