Necklines come and go in popularity but it’s helpful to know which ones flatter your shape because the wrong neckline can make or break your look. Since the goal is to draw the eye up to your face, that neckline you’re sporting is pretty darn important. Let’s look at what suits you.
Triangle shaped figures are narrower on top than the bottom. The goal is to add visual width up top so bateau, portrait, square, cowl, turtle and jewel necklines will be your most flattering. V-necks are universally flattering but the high, wide versions are better than deep, narrow ones for you.
Rectangle shaped figures are straight up and down with little or no waist definition. Their silhouettes are flattered by halter, deep scoop, and V-necklines. Your most flattering V-neckline is deep rather than wide. Asymmetrical lines and shawl collars add softness which helps balance your straight silhouette. Bateau, crew, and square necklines are not your best.
BOAT NECK TOPS
Inverted triangle shaped figures have wide shoulders and narrow hips. They often have flat derrieres and little or no waist definition. You are flattered by a cowl, halter, deep scoop and V-neckline. Shirts with diagonal lines narrow the look of your top and add balance. Choose deep rather than wide V-necks. Bateau, turtle, and crew necklines are not your best.
Round shaped figures are narrow on top and bottom and are fuller through the tummy. Your shoulders may be wide, narrow or rounded and the derriere tends to be flat. You are flattered by scoop and deep V necklines. Bateau, square and turtle necklines are not the best for you.
SCOOP AND CREW NECK TOPS
Hourglass figures are balanced through the shoulders and hips with a well-defined waistline. Lucky you! Crew, scoop, boat, and V necklines are all flattering. Boxy tops are not your friend.
Few of us are exclusively one of these shapes. We are often a combo so pay attention to the lines of your body and let your eye be your guide.
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
