• High neck
High neck is yet another major trendsetter. The design went viral and was sported not only by celebrities, but also by common people. The design branched out to further experiments with collar neck, full sleeve, boat-shaped neck and so on. Flaunted by actors like Rekha back in the 80’s, the design is still doing the rounds and seems like it’s here to stay.
