Bridal's love affair with the two-piece has got even more passionate. Forget the simplistic shell top and embellished tee; the new season is all about the tie-neck or high-neck blouse.
Get the '70s secretary look by keeping it sheer, with your bow loose and paired with a narrow sleek maxi, or prairie-style with a high-frilled collar and cuffs worn with a tiered tulle or taffeta floor-sweeping skirt.
