Lines & Curves | Ladylike and Tea with Cakes Vintage 1980s does 1940s striped day dress with Scalloped Neckline
Scallops are always a great detail to have. Sometimes they are placed in the strangest placest, bringing attention to the wrong places. But here, the scallops are placed at the neckline, which emphasise the collarbone and neck. Wear it with your hair up to highlight the neck and collar bone, which is one of the sexist parts of the woman's body, we feel. Add the longer swingy skirt for a serious yet flirty feel.
