Your Bateau Neckline Shopping Guide: Tops Under £50

The neckline we'll be wearing all summer thanks to the Duchess of Sussex.

Meghan Markle’s wedding dress revived an interest the bateau neckline.

Also known as a “boat neck”, this cut is loved for its subtlety. It’s not as dramatic as an off-shoulder piece or as regular as a crew neckline, but it is a nod to warmer, sunnier days, that can be worn when it is still too chilly to choose spaghetti straps.
