Whew! You know it is much harder to find real vintage examples of the "slash" neckline style knit tops we modern gals are so fond of. What brought on my search? Well of course I have finally invested in some of the much loved Vivien of Holloway Slash Neck Tops that seem to be so popular among the retro crowd. I began wondering what actual vintage styles the top was based on and began my search for authentic examples and well, there weren't many to be found!
Now finding dresses with the straight across high neckline was easy enough:
It was harder to find examples of the same neck line style in knit tops (though there were several sweaters, mostly done in lace patterns):
|These skirts though right?! One of each please!|
Till then, lets admire how some lovely gals in the vintage community wear their slash neck tops...
The ever stunning Miss Victory Violet in the navy blue slash neck top! So pretty paired with tartan :)
Cici of Cici Marie styles this entirely Vivien of Holloway ensemble so perfectly! I just picked up the circle skirt version of the same plaid as her skirt and am super excited to wear it!
Darling Nora of Nora Finds styled her pretty green version of the slash neck top with a super cool novelty print circle skirt and leather jacket while on vacation in Japan (I'm jealous).
I naughtily didn't ask these ladies if I could post their pictures here, so girls let me know if you want me to take them down, I was merely looking for slash neck top styling inspiration! Make sure to check out all three of these vintage mavens blogs for tons of great style if by some chance you aren't already following them!
