Although it might not seem to important to some people when they’re picking an outfit but the neckline you choose can define your full outfit, as they draw attention up to your face and can really determine whether something is flattering or not. A stylish blouse is the perfect piece to invest in since it will last you throughout the colder periods of the year, and can be layered with other pieces. However, with so many chic tops and blouses out there right now, it can be hard to know where to start. Here’s a rundown of some of the necklines that have been amongst the fashion world for as long as I can remember and have a proven track record. Have a scroll through the four most popular necklines.
Style Notes: V-necks are made for ladies with a bigger bust. Opt for a style that is clinched at the waist to give your figure more definition. This look is also very flattering for those with smaller bra sizes, and a looser style will look great with a lacy bralette peeking through.
Style Notes: If it’s a super chunky knit you prefer then got for a cropped version to offset the heaviness of the fabric. For the perfect weekend look, pair with mom jeans with a high waist and some knee high boots.
Style Notes: A true American classic, the crew-neck was brought to the forefront with the emergence of the t-shirt, whose present-day incarnation has roots in ’50s casual menswear. The crew-neck is a trend for everyone, and it looks chic paired with a denim A-line skirt and statement accessories. A more fitted crew-neck will be the most flattering, but if a boxier men’s cut is more your taste, try tucking your crew-neck in to help accentuate your waist.
Style Notes: The sweetheart neckline was made popular in the ’40s and ’50s, and it’s one of the most flattering necklines of all time. It provides an attractive décolletage and can be found in halter versions or with sleeves. If you’re looking for a modern version of this neckline, try a playful pattern, and pair it with high-waisted trousers or a skirt. Hello, holiday hero.
