Celebs like Emma Roberts prove this popular, nighttime-only neckline deserves a stroll (well, many strolls) in the sunlight.
It’s not every day you wake up and think to throw on your deepest V, but, as you’re about to see, that’s a really great idea.
Emma’s flirty, running-errands-on-the-weekend mini dress is a prime example that baring your chest doesn’t always have to be overly sexy. The actress matched its youthful spirit perfectly by throwing on some Chucks, but the major style tip here is that throwing a denim jacket over a top really does downplay sultry statements. Add-ons matter—remember that.

Now to the opposite end of this spectrum.
As cute as Em looks with her jacket strewn over top, there’s another way…a sexier way to wear such a dress. Chanel Iman is owning her bold neckline as-is. However, the way she’s chosen to “cover up” or rather balance out the lack of coverage is with a tall pair of gladiator sandals. The model knows how to work her levels and now you do too.
Because Kate Moss‘ neckline isn’t as structured (read: in your face) as the other two, she (and eventually you) can get away with a little more. Not only is the icon sporting a deep V, but she’s also partnered her maxi with a fun, printed bodysuit underneath. This is how you make two bold, subtle statements.
Irina Shayk is giving off major bedroom vibes in her low-cut, lingerie-like slip dress. The lace-trimmed top (and all its sex appeal) is offset by the length of the skirt. If you’re not ready to commit to a plunging neckline and a mini, something like this would suit you well. Just throw a blazer over top for more conservative functions!
Jenna Dewan Tatum‘s slit and her neckline have us seeing double. Of all the daytime deep Vs, her mirrored midi’s structured fit is the closest you’ll get to being office-appropriate. Keep things casual with a crossbody bag or dress it up (maybe for that summer wedding you’re headed to?) with a statement-making clutch.
