Choosing The Right Neckline For Your Body

Whether you’re short shopping or dress shopping, you know that there are a lot of different necklines out there to choose from. It can be a bit perplexing as to which ones will suit you and your body type best. The neckline is important, as it does help balance out your figure, and it helps enhance the appearance of your face. So which neckline is best for you?

The Necklines

There are a lot of necklines out there, but we will first make mention of the necklines that are most common:

  • V-necks
  • Crew necks
  • Turtlenecks
  • Mock turtlenecks
  • Jewel necks
  • Scoop necks
  • Square necks
  • Boat necks

Now on to the neckline rules…

Boat necks: Boat necks are the type of neckline that you will find being very open and cutting right across the collar bones. These types of necklines are wonderful for women with heart-shaped faces. These are also a great choice for anyone who is trying to enhance a smaller bust line.

Jewel necks: Jewel necks can be characterized as a tight crew neck that creeps just a short way up the neck. These types of necklines are great for those with a heart-shaped face, or those who have a long face. This type of neckline is also ideal for anyone with a smaller bust line, as it will help enhance it.

Turtlenecks: Turtlenecks are those shorts that have material that reach all the way up to the jaw line of a man or woman. Turtlenecks are a great choice for anyone who has an elongated face, or for anyone who wants to hide that pesky double chin that they just can’t seem to get rid of.

Scoop necks: Scoop neck necklines are those that form a “u” shape from both sides of the collar bones. This neckline is particularly flattering for anyone with a wide, round face.

V-Necks: V-necks are shirts that have a “v” shape cut into the front of the shirt. This type of neckline is also great for balancing out any wide, rounder faces, and v-necks are also great for anyone who wants to soften the appearance of their wider or broader shoulders. This will help draw any attention away from your shoulders. For those with a short neck, v-necks are also a good choice as this shape helps make the neck appear longer than it really is. For those who don’t want to make their larger bust so apparent, a V-neck is a good option as it will help draw attention away from your “assets”.

Square neck: A square neck neckline is that which has a square shape cut out of the neckline. This type of neckline is great for those with larger, rounder faces.

Mock Turtlenecks: Mock turtlenecks, as with a lot of the necklines that you can choose from, are also a good choice for anyone with a larger, rounder face who wants to help balance out her appearance. Mock turtlenecks are also a good choice for anyone who wants to try and conceal a double chin that they may have.
