Making the Imperfect Neckline Perfect !

Once you discover your True Colors and Authentic Style, and now are cruising the Internet and shops shopping them, you surely have become more aware of the necklines that are your most flattering.

Unless you along your colors and personal style recommendations are the muse of a fashion designer, there may be some struggle on knowing when to purchase the almost-right items for your wardrobe.


The good news is that when it comes to necklines, there are ways to minimize a less-than-ideal ones. A very common dilemma is finding the perfect fit, color and price point in a top or dress, which unfortunately could also feature a non-A plus neckline.

Do you pass or consider purchasing? Don’t pass until you read the tips below on taking the so-so to a great place!

Creating Angles

You have found the perfect dress in your Romantic Color. It is your size, and fits like a glove. However, it has a crew neckline.  If your best neckline is v-neck, you can improve this neckline with a long necklace with an angular pendant on the end of it. The lines of the chain create a v-shape, and the pendant emphasises it.

Creating a Circle

A bib necklace can help make the Energy-Colored square neck top appear rounder if your best neckline is high and round. You can create the same rounded effect with a square shaped scarf folded diagonally and tied to one side. To emphasize the shape more, reach for a bib necklace or scarf one shade brighter or in a contrasting color to the top and really emphasize the recreated neckline.

Creating Asymmetry

You find the perfect match to your elusive Tranquil Color. However, it is in a simple symmetrical scoop-neck sheath dress. You can add a bit of imbalance to it with a focal point single or cluster of small pins worn between the bust and shoulder on your left side, or add a wrap belt to the look, tied in a knot to the side.

Creating an Oval

The sweater is a perfect match to your Essence Color, but the plunge v-neck seems a bit severe. The solution: add a long scarf and cowl it.  A long cowled scarf can make any neckline softer, and puts the emphasis on your face. Consider using the colors of the scarf to tie all of the tones of the outfit together to create the most harmonious head-to-toe look!

Creating a Wrap Effect:

If you are best in shapes that are draped and do not have a hard endpoint, which emphasize your head to toe curves, you can take a basic Dramatic-Colored v-neck shift dress and soften it with a low-contrast chiffon scarf worn around the neck, crossed over itself and kept in place with a very thin belt at the waist.
