Coming out of summer and into fall I thought talking all about necklines today would be apropos. Did you know the neckline frames your face and is probably the feature you’ll most concentrate on when choosing your dress? It’s the part of your dress that gives your face some wow! Because there are almost as many necklines as sleeve variations, think of mixing both components as an opportunity to really create that one-of-a-kind creation. Front and back bodices though aren’t always identical. For instance, the front could have a straight across neckline, and back a deep V; whereas another gown could have a scoop in front as well as back. Below are just a handful of varied styles you might find inspiring . . . .
  Clockwise:Scoop-Low rounded neckline///Turtleneck-Once a classic, the high neck or turtleneck can be a plain band of dress fabric or lace. Especially popular in the Edwardian gown craze of the 70s when cotton ‘granny gowns’ reappeared///Asymmetrical-Neckline falls diagonally-one side strapless the other either with sleeve or sleeveless///Square-One of my personal favorites, conveying a real open look, square necks look great on long and A-line silhouettes///Sweetheart-Plunges into an open heart shape///Halter-Straps either wrap around the neck or neckline is high with deep armholes.
