These 5 Necklines Are Flattering On All Women, No Matter Her Shape Or Size

While different shirts and dresses work best for different body types, there are a few necklines that look good one anyone. Try one of these cuts if you want something guaranteed to flatter you.

V-Neck. Almost without exception, a woman’s décolletage and collarbone is one of the most alluring parts of her body. A deep, open V-neck, then, is the perfect way to show it off. This will make you look longer and leaner than you are by drawing the eye up and towards your face. If you’re especially petite or have a short neck this is a particularly good strategy, as it adds the most length to your upper body.

Cowl Neck. Turtlenecks aren’t always a great choice, as they take height away from you and and length away from your face and neck. Cowl neck, on the other hand, are a good option for almost anyone. Cowl necks are looser than traditional turtlenecks, and drape naturally over your chest. This elongates your body by creating a vertical line. Mock necks, which are lower than normal turtlenecks, are a second-best option if you’re looking for more coverage.

Halter Neck. No matter what the size or shape of your body, a halter neck will look good on you. Look for one with a built-in bra if you want to create the illusion of more curves than actually exist. If you already have a large chest, a halter is great for supporting and lifting. Wear it under a fitted jacket if you want to draw attention away from your arms or shoulders.

Sweetheart Neck. Low, open sweetheart necks, which have the shape of the top of a heart, serve a similar function as V-necks. They show off the almost universally attractive collarbone and decollete region, while also making your upper body seem longer than it is. Additionally, the shape of a sweetheart neck adds curves to less shapely figures, and accentuates what already exists on better-endowed bodies.

Button-Up Neck. A classic buttoned neckline is incredibly versatile in terms of the body types it looks good on. For smaller women, tailored cuts are best, while bustier women look better in loose-fitting shirts made of drapey fabrics.
