Gone are the days when the sweetheart neckline were only worn by super ~girly girls~. Today, the retro-inspired neckline is seeing modern-day renditions, and is worn by stylish celebs, each with a different take on making the look their own.
And ICYDK, the sweetheart neckline is called that because—surprise!—it resembles the top part of a heart. And that’s probably why it gets the association of being ultra feminine—but not anymore! Below, stylish celebs show us the different ways to wear the look:
Sticking to the basics, Janine pairs her jeans with a ~dressy~ top, which features a sweetheart neckline and leg of mutton sleeves, in classic white-and-red polka dots.
Cop this look to wear to your next brunch date!
Summer lovin' couldn't look any better. Jess steps out into the sun in a retro-inspired summer dress in pink and red, ruffled straps, and a sweetheart neckline that's totally figure-flattering. Clock her comfy pair of Birks, too!
We think it's a great way to look stylish and travel-ready, yes?
Feeling a bit *shy* to wear a sweetheart neckline? Kyline tries on an age-appropriate number, with a baby blue doll dress with a sheer overlay that makes her look all the more lovely.
The style chameleon can wear any look—from drama queen to badass babe. Bea goes for a killer black dress that mixes textures and uses a lot of leather. We call it a super gorg with a touch of glam and a dash of spice—best worn when you're likely to run into an ex. Oops.
Only a lady like Arci can make boring neutrals multiple levels more interesting. It's a balance of daring and sweet: A bold neckline vis-a-vis an oversized jacket to add a bit of coverage.
Wear this combo on gloomy, rainy days like today, in place of your usual dark-colored outfits.
Make boring OOTD days extra bright and sunny with a statement top like Sarah's. While she keeps everything else pretty low-key and basic, we love how she picks a silhouette—and color!—that definitely makes her outfit stand out.
Best for occasions when you're not ~required~ to dress up, but still want to!
Never one to tone down when it comes to daring OOTDs, we love how Kylie looks extra sweet and girly in this white top. She keeps it simple with her hair down and minimal accessories, too.
Oh, to be young and beautiful (and with a jowa, too!). This sweetheart dress in a dashing baby blue hue only makes Liza look more like a modern-day princess. Love this date-ready look!
Gorgeous Marian styles a crop top with high-waist trousers, and while she reveals a teeny bit of skin, we're fans of how she's managed to keep the look classy. Try this superstar-approved look to your next big event!
Kathryn wears a Filipiniana with a modern twist: Woven patterns, a sweetheart neckline, and bold, dark makeup. We love how she totally owns the look!
