5 Statement Necklines that Must Have in Your Wardrobe

We often give a lot of attention to the kind of clothes and their colors in our wardrobe, but sometimes it’s the finer details that matter. Make sure you have these five necklines or a more stylish wardrobe.

The Bow Neck

There’s something about bows that add a classic feminine element to your dress without too many frills. In fact, there probably wasn’t any era in which the bow neck blouse or dress was not in style. If you want a look that’s completely vintage or retro, a bow neckline is just perfect for you. Pair it with a messy bun and some nice dangling earrings to complete the look; you obviously wouldn’t want to ruin the bow by throwing on a neckpiece.

The Boat Neck

No matter what your neck or bust size is, the boat neck is one neckline that can never go wrong only because it comes in so many variations. Solid colors, ruffles, cutwork, lace, you name it. If you’ve got massive shoulders, don’t go for something that’s too sheer, but if your shoulders are slender paired with a delicate neck, do a boat neck with a low back to drawing some mega attention in a crowd. In fact, boat necks will also work well with most of your chunky jewels. So if you’re still wondering on how to style the statement necklace you got last Christmas, style it a solid boatneck top for some bling factor.

The Sweetheart Neck

The neckline gets its name from its curved bottom edge that resembles the upper half of heart. And for very obvious reasons, the sweetheart is a popular choice for flirty dresses and wedding wear. It’s not always strapless and sleeveless, though. Nevertheless, it looks best when it’s without straps and sleeves, and is perfect to add that extra bit of oomph to your look for just about any special affair. While some women like the public display of their assets by throwing on some chunky neck jewelry, the sweetheart goes best with something that’s very delicate – like a small teardrop pendant.

The square neck

Square necklines can be a bit tricky to pull off because they end up giving a wide appearance to the bust. However, they work perfectly for women with narrow shoulders. They’re still a great addition to your wardrobe; if you’re a bit uncomfy with the squareness, neutralize it with a black blazer. If you don’t own a black blazer, get one… it’s a fashion essential for every woman! Another great thing about the square neckline is that they’re often associated with nautical styles, which tend to be back in fashion every single season. Hence, you can’t have one in your wardrobe even if it’s just a simple T.

The keyhole

If you’re not comfortable going all out with a sweetheart’s neck and showing off extra skin with extra cleavage, then maybe the keyhole neckline is just the thing for you. Covered at the top, the keyhole neckline features a (frequently) tiny decorative opening that offers a sneak peek inside. It’s a great substitution for the sweetheart for that extra bit of glam to slightly less special occasions like a meeting at work.
