Doina Ciobanu: V-Shaped Necklines Fashion Styling

A V-shaped neckline is very popular in today’s fashion and usually looks good on everyone. Most women’s body shapes can benefit from the elongating and slenderizing look. Women who are tall or skinny benefit from a v-neck as it balances figures. And, women who have broad shoulders also appreciate this type of neckline as it can minimize their upper body. Looking for some outfit and styling ideas for this type of neckline? Let’s have a sneak peek on a fashion blogger style.

From Chisinau, Moldova, Doina Ciobanu is a style blogger known for her edgy, elegant and feminine fashion style. Since Doina came from Moldova, a country which is not related to fashion in any ways, it challenged her to express her personal style and inspired her to share her thoughts and looks to people from other countries through a blog. Started her blog in 2010, The Golden Diamonds is about her outfits, lifestyle, and things that inspire her. Since Doina got an ideal body shape, she dresses in a way that flatters her including v-shaped necklines in her daily outfit.

As the neckline’s name indicates, the distinguishing feature of this style is the low cut in “V” form. The natural shape of the v-neckline outfit does a great job of framing your face and creating a leaner figure illusion. The “V” form itself draws the eye vertically, so the result is a more slimming style than any other necklines. A V-neck top shows off a little bit of your chest which is extremely elegant and sensual since the skin and clavicles look more refined. V-necklines also broaden the shoulders visually and balance the wide hips since it emphasizes a slim waist.

The V-neck is particularly good because it allows you to wear scarves or other necklaces without feeling like you have too much weight around your neck. The right accessory can always boost an outfit, but the V-neck style outfits can flaunt itself. Remember, a necklace is going to draw the eye to the plunge even more, while a choker could cut you off in an undesirable spot, making you lose the slimming effect of the plunge. Choose necklace with contrasting shape and ensure that it sits slightly above, or far below the V outline.

If you have been very demure until now and want to look a little more daring, this is the style to start to experiment with showing a little more cleavage. Of all styles, the most flattering and adaptable is the V-neckline for curvy and big busts women. But if you’d like to put them on a show, avoid tops that dip too low and reveal more than a hint cleavage. Too much cleavage tends to cheapen your look. Instead, find form-fitting tops that will create a beautiful silhouette and will show off your shape than your cleavage. You can also often adjust the length of the V form by undoing, or doing up buttons if the outfit permits. Just note how the lapels emphasize the V-neckline. Wrap dresses, V-neck dresses, V-neck blouses and tops are great for women with larger busts.

If you’re still feeling demure and modest, you can still opt for V-necklines without showing much skin. You can opt for a shallow V-neckline or wear blazers or coats underneath the plunge such as turtlenecks, tank tops, and sheer blouses as long as they are in neutral color especially a nude one. Nude colored layer gives a trick of a bare skin without showing some and adds an extra coverage without hindering your confidence. As an alternative, you may pick other neutral colors or vivid ones as long the V-neck outlines of your outerwear is highly visible through color or texture. Color paneled dresses in V-necks are great options too. Or, you could wear a coat over strappy dresses that still create a V-neck shape.

Pick the best outfit style that flatters your figure at its best and you’ll surely turn heads.
