For a long time, I was unsure about how to dress my frame. I'm quite tall, my shoulders aren't particularly broad (but they are defined from years of Crossfit), I don't have a waist, and my hips aren't well defined. Then I discovered the beauty of boat neck dresses with a flared skirt, and life instantly made sense. They haven't been popular in recent years, but thankfully, The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle is bringing them back in a big way. To celebrate, I found 15 boat neck dresses under $50 to make you feel like a duchess.
The boat neck dress is that classic shape made popular in the 1950s with starlets and women the world over favoring the demure shape that just allows a peekaboo of collar bone to show, while drawing attention up to the face. Our own American royalty, Jackie Kennedy, was famous for her boat neck dresses often worn with a gorgeous brooch pinned near the top on the left side. The Duchess of Sussex is putting her own spin on this style by pairing them with gorgeous spectator hats worn over casually styled hair and minimal makeup. Even her wedding dress was a stunning satin boat neck style gown that wowed the world. Thankfully, you don't have to be royalty to look like a princess. These boat neck dresses won't break the bank.
