Top 10: Illusion Necklines from the 2013 Wedding Runway

Illusion necklines are a lovely and ladylike vintage detail we were thrilled to see make such a comeback on the runway. Whether you want to make a bold statement with sparkles and lace, or a subtle one, all sheer silks and wispy cotton candy confection, there is sure to be one that’s just right for you.

Plus they offer more coverage (and interest) than the ever-popular strapless dress. So if you’re in the market for something delightfully demure, but don’t quite want sleeves (another hot look we’ll get to soon), look no further!

Here are a few of our favorites:
