What Is The Best Neckline To Suit Your Face?
When choosing the right dress what does a bride look for? Ultimately it should reflect your personal style.
Necklines are a personal choice, brides knowing what suits their figures and shape. In spring and summer an off-the-shoulder dress will suit the weather while by adding lace in winter should keep in with the brides choice of neckline. The more traditional choices for brides are sweetheart or plunging/V necklines. This neckline suits women with a petite frame and Emily had the perfect example of a sweetheart neckline.
Lace came back into fashion when Sarah Burton designed the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s dress to wed Prince William in 2011. Since then we have seen more and more brides adding lace to create a higher neckline and sleeves. Our bride Davinia chose a sweetheart neckline with lace and sleeves creating an elegant and regal dress while Lisa enhanced her décolletage with plunging neckline and lace sleeves.
Each bride is unique and chooses the neckline to enhance her favourite features. This style will suit brides with a smaller bust. A high neckline will also draw the eyes up and show off the shoulders like Kate, who also enhances her cheekbones.
Jane’s round neckline created an entirely new silhouette, the use of lace creating a softness against the block colour skirt,
Ann Marie’s plunging/V neckline gave a fresh look and elongated her neck. This style suits brides with broad shoulders and can balance out pear shapes.
Athletic builds or brides with tall or petite frames will benefit from a cowl necked dress which adds drama and elegance. Cowl necked dresses are usually backless and Donna was a beautiful example of this,
Choosing the right neckline can draw the eyes away from any unwanted attention to problem areas such as arms or tummy. No matter which neckline the bride picks they will know ‘The One’ the minute they try it on and the best accessory is your smile.
