Usually, when I write a blog post about a specific type of dress, I have only one purpose. It is to share with some outfit ideas on how to style it. But for this blog post about the mock neck dress, I have an extra purpose. Since the definition of the mock neck dress is so unclear, I want to let how better understand what “mock neck” is. To keep it short, “mock neck” is something inbetween “crew neck” and “turtleneck”. In other words, it is “turtle neck” without the fold over part. Now that we know what it is, let’s check out some of the best mock neck dress outfit ideas I have collected for you.
Black Mock Neck Dress with Grey Strappy Sandals
To start off the list, I am going to show you a very typical and iconic black mock neck shift dress. It is not too much different from a crew neck dress, except it just seems to look slightly more formal. You can wear it with grey strappy heeled sandals to achieve a stylish and feminine look.
