This week was all about looking sexy without sacrificing warmth. Don’t believe us? Just look up! Two covered-up dress trends made a big splash on the red carpet, while the style we’re seeing less of shows lots more skin:
Up: Turtleneck minis: A soccer-mom staple is getting a sexy spin: Khloé Kardashian Odom and Britney Spears both stepped out this week (at the same event!) in short black dresses with turtleneck tops. Since it’s a seasonally appropriate style of mini, expect to see more stars donning the silhouette in other hues — jewel tones and on-trend bright whites — paired with tights and cute booties.
Up: Illusion necklines: Not only is this sheer neckline a good way to cover up, but Jessica Alba (in a pale pink floral-print Valentino gown) and Keira Knightley (wearing an embroidered Valentino Haute Couture creation) prove it’s also a gorgeous way to show off the intricately detailed patterns of a dress.
Down: Extreme plunging necklines: Yes, Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr looks ridiculously hot in her Balmain mini, but the skin-baring front is rather summer-y, which is why stars are swapping it for less revealing necklines (like turtleneck and illusion!).
