Mock-neck dresses are the latest retro trend to take shape this season; conveniently ideal for autumn's pre-freezing temperatures. Runways from London to Milan showed the mod-inspired style, including a black-and-white version at Louis Vuitton, an '80s-influenced take on the definitively '60s look from J.W. Anderson, and a floral brocade version by Giambattista Valli.
Not to be confused with its close-knit cousin the turtleneck, it offers a shorter, standing neckpiece which provides coverage without extra bulk. The detail is face-framing in a subtly pretty way, and makes for a great work dress. Get the look this fall with 10 of the best mock-neck dresses around, from Acne to Topshop. Everything's shoppable in our gallery above.
