Women’s collar bones are so gorgeous, so it’s important to choose the right neckline for your body to properly show it off! I like to sweep some discreet sparkles or shine powder across the collar bone and decollete. Date night? Must do.
There are many different necklines for you to choose from and you should consider which is best for you based on two elements: the specific occasion and your body type.

Some necklines are more flattering for certain body types than others! Choose your neckline based on your own shape, rather than the most recent trending look and style. Dressing for your body type is a well known tip and should be followed in regards to the neckline also.
To my large chested friends:
First off, not fair 🙂
Boat and crew necklines are great for larger chested women. Try to steer clear from v-necks and deep scoops in work settings. Boat necklines look great on larger chests because it shows skin without showing too much, especially for the work hours.
Heart shapes are very flattering on busty girls, great for evening dresses! For night outs, and fun, you can definitely rock the v-neck. My opinion for night outs…if you got it, flaunt it! Within reason of course…
To my small chested friends:
Us small chested girls have it a little more simple because we don’t have to worry about showing off too much or being too revealing. Both a blessing and a curse. Small chested girls look great in v-necks and scoops. Cowl-necks are great to add some extra volume. I love to pair a cowl neck with a delicate long necklace.
For night outs, small chests are lucky to be able to wear plunging necklines while still looking sophisticated.
To my curvy girls:
Boat necks are a great option for you. This cut balances your body and accentuates your shape nicely. Boxy necklines create contrast to your body and elongate your neck.
To my athletics girls:
Halters are flattering on muscular women and really show off those beautiful sculpted shoulders. It also can add an allusion of more curves, which can feminize the body. Scoop necks too.
Let’s all play!
Halters are universally flattering for all women! Collars and button downs are great choices for work. A lower scoop crew neck makes your neck appear long and lean, so its a must do to show off that collar bone.
Strapless is harder to pull off. If you’re small chested you will be pulling it up non-stop and if you’re large chested you will be fearing popping out non-stop. SO in most cases, I personally steer clear from strapless, unless it’s a very special piece.
None of these rules have been set in stone and I’m not saying that these rules must be followed! If you’re confident, you can pull off anything!
