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.
Bateau or boat neck necklines have been spotted across the high street. Here are our favourite picks under £50:
