When you think how straps have been getting more and more itty-bitty (from vest to cami to spaghetti), it's not surprising that they've vamooshed completely. As of now, the bandeau neckline is big news.

Channel your inner Posh Spice and keep it simple and fuss-free in block colours, for a zig-a-zig-ah wardrobe injection.
