Neckline for Broad Shoulders
What type of neckline will compliment broad shoulders? (Willows, CA)
A nice healthy set of strong shoulders absolutely makes clothes fall better. But, when healthy starts to veer to overpowering, a bit of clothing camouflage is in order.
To create the illusion of a more balanced silhouette, opt for necklines that bring the eye down, like a simple V-neck or open shirt collar.
Accessories, like the very of the moment, long oblong scarf will also compliment broad shoulders.
Avoid boatnecks, puffed sleeves, or heavy shoulder pads that will only add width.
