The Best Asymmetrical Necklines for Your Body Type

What are the best asymmetrical necklines for YOUR body type?

If you are looking for a neckline that is slightly different this season, why not try one that is asymmetrical?  These necklines are trending right now and are more creative and interesting than traditional necklines. And they are definitely more edgy. But how do you wear this trend properly without it looking too distracting, odd, or quirky?  After all, any trend should ultimately compliment the wearer and not take away from them.  If you want to stand out of the crowd, but in a good way, here are a few tips on how to wear this asymmetrical trend!

What’s Your Body Type?

There are four basic types of body shapes: pear, heart, box, and hourglass.  You are a pear if your hip measurement is larger than your bust measurement. If your bust measurement is greater than your hip measurement, you are a heart shape.  If your bust, waist, and hip measurements are all close or equal, you are a box shape. And if your bust and hip measurements are close or equal and your waist is smaller, you have an hourglass shape.

Pear Shape

If you are a pear shape, you can balance your body shape out by wearing high necklines and collars. You should avoid V-necks and tops with sloping shoulders. Try an asymmetrical neckline that is still high and not a V-neck. This neckline will draw your eye upwards and away from your hips, thereby balancing your body.


Heart Shape

If you are a heart shape, you want to slenderize your top half. So, tops with V-necks are ideal for you! Try a V-neck asymmetrical top and it will looks gorgeous on you.


Box Shape

If you are a box shape, rounded necks will create more of an illusion of shape and a curved silhouette. Try an asymmetrical dress that is off the shoulder on one side only with frills or ruffles. This will draw the eye upward by creating the illusion of a bigger bust line that will help to balance out your figure.


Hourglass Shape

If you have an hourglass shape, you are in luck because most asymmetrical necklines will look simply great on you! Just make certain your outfit is not too tight or skimpy or it will not flatter your figure. Instead, it will make you look frumpy and like you’re trying too hard.


By understanding your body type, just about anyone can look terrific in asymmetrical necklines without having to call a professional stylist!
