Now, as for the fashion: naval-grazing tops were the item-of-the-moment this season. I can't recall a single show that didn't feature some form of plunging v-neck. While it's an interesting look, it isn't that democratic. What I mean is that - much like Karl Lagerfeld's hot pants - plunging necklines are only really wearable for a specific group of women, in this case women with modest bust lines (ie not me). So, for those of us who can't go bra-less without being arrested, I would recommend a less exaggerated version of the trend, for example a deep v-neck. V-necks are a good choice if you're looking to elongate, as the converging lines accentuate the triangular shape created by your shoulders and waist. The best way I've seen it worn so far is with high-waisted skirts and pants which further nip in at the waist and add length to the body.
In the course of my runway cruising I managed to accumulate a good thirty-six versions of this particular style, and there's no way I'm posting all of them. Anyway, I'll try to pick the best examples and offer a variety of styling. All photos from http://www.style.com/.

This version looks a little more supportive than some of the others. Also, it's totally stunning.
