As someone who has a smaller stature and a short torso, I am constantly looking for pieces that accentuate my favorite features and blur out the ones that I am not too fond of. Over the years, I have added quite a few pieces to my closet that have helped me looked taller. And I have openly shared those tips on how to look taller as a petite in blog posts and on my various social media channels. One of the tips that I share for looking taller as petite is the open neckline. There are so many pieces with an open neckline that you can add to your closet, which is why I wanted to share a little more information on the perks of an open neckline since it does more than just make you look taller.
SHOP THE POST:
Tops or dresses with an open neckline come in a variety of styles. Whether it is off the shoulder, a square neck, or a deep V, you can find open-neck pieces in styles that reflect your luxurious personal style. And though I have talked a lot about the perks of these styles being focused on the petite frame, there are actually a lot of perks for a variety of body types, and here’s just a few.
- Makes Your Statement Jewelry Stand Out – For those who like to wear statement jewelry, an open neckline will make your jewelry the highlight of the entire look since it’s not longer hidden under other pieces of clothing. Try out the multi-necklace trend with tops that have open necklines.
- Your Bust Will Look Amazing – Whether you got little ones or big ones, your bust will be accentuated in the right way. It all just depends on what type you are wearing. Off the shoulder and deep-V pieces do so well for those who have bigger breasts and the square neck does great for those with smaller ones like me.
- Highlights Your Bone Structure – Since there’s not a lot near your face, your face will be focused on a long more and your bone structure will be highlighted. So for those who are spending so much time contouring to make your face look sharper, you’ll love open neckline pieces because the work you put in will be accentuated.
- Elongates the Neck – When there’s nothing around the neck, you’ll definitely make it look longer and less cut off. So if you’re somone who wants a little height or thinks your neck looks small, try open neckline pieces.
