Fashion Friday: 5 Supremely Flattering Necklines
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014, Wedding Dress

After polling on Facebook and Twitter, the answer is clear: when it comes to wedding gowns, PW brides place more emphasis on the neckline than the skirt. It makes sense, too—while we’re all about a gorgeous gown, at the end of the day it’s more important that you look gorgeous in it! And the best way to do that is with pretty details up top that draw attention to your face. Here, we’ve rounded up 5 of the most flattering necklines we know, all with examples from the latest runway collections. Enjoy!

1. High Neck Halter

Sophisticated brides, take note—high neck halters are an elegant way way to highlight sculpted shoulders and firm upper arms. The gathering of fabric at the neck also leads people’s eyes straight to your smile. Gowns (left to right): Lazaro and Temperely London.

2. Deep V 

The plunging V is a great look for lither ladies who want to show off great posture and beautiful clavicle bones. We love this sexy statement for smaller-chested brides—just remember the double-sided tape! Or opt for a gown with mesh netting to hold everything in place, like the Berta gown on the right. Gowns: Anne Barge and Berta.

3. Illusion V

The Illusion V is a beautiful compromise for brides who want the support of straps but the bareness of a bustier/sweetheart gown.  Lace, appliques, and other details draw eyes upwards, while the plunge discretely creates a bit of cleavage. Gowns: Christos and Tara Keely.

4. Off-The-Shoulder 

It doesn’t get any more romantic than an off-the-shoulder dress. Pair it with sweeping statement earrings (necklaces and chokers feel too 90’s) to beautifully highlight the shoulders and clavicle bones. Gowns: Lela Rose and Legends by Romona Keveza.

 5. Covered Illusion Tops 

Thinking about a more demure look for your wedding day? Sleeves and high-necks don’t have to feel stuffy. By opting for sheer fabrics, you’ll get the coverage you want without feeling like you’re bundled up in fabric. Gowns: Wtoo by Watters and Alyne.
