trendspotting: plunging necklines

Better start stocking up on some killer lingerie, because plunging necklines are shaping up to be the trendiest new silhouette for Fall 2012. They're the perfect complement to the peplums we also saw (and wrote about) all over the runways. And, honestly, this is a trend that all women can try out and feel sexy wearing, no matter what your size or shape. If you're petite, go all out in a V-neck jumpsuit; if you're more well-endowed, add a cute lace bra underneath. Underwear and lingerie are still all the rage, so it'll be de rigeur to expose a bit of it underneath your outfit. If you're too shy to expose your bra, try a cute mesh bodysuit instead. Add a vintage long necklace and you're good to go. Quite frankly, we're so excited for this trend, we might just start trying it out this summer, too!
