If you’ve got narrow shoulders and are looking to create more definition, keep one thing in mind: It’s all about proportion! If you’re a gal with an athletic or a pear-shaped figure, read on for some tips for the most flattering necklines.
Here are our favorite tops for narrow shouldered gals!
Broaden with Boatnecks
Boatnecks are characterized with a higher, but wider neckline that reaches from shoulder to shoulder. In general, a wider neckline lends the illusion of broader and more defined shoulders. Double this effect by looking for boatneck tops with horizontal stripes.
Go the Distance with V-necks
Perhaps the most universally flattering neckline for all body types, a V-neck is perfect for balancing your frame. Remember, the wider the V-neck—the wider your shoulders will look!
Show Off Your Shoulders in a Tank
Show off your shoulder real estate in a bare-all tank! Halter tanks and camis are making a big splash this spring and summer. Go for a bold and bright hue that pops against your skin tone. Don’t forget to moisturize your shoulders!
Let Loose with an Off-the-shoulder top
If you think you don’t have what it takes to rock this trend—think again! An off-the-shoulder top is perfect for showing a bit of skin in a subtle way while allowing the wide neckline to elongate your shoulders. Choose an off-the-shoulder top in a pretty pastel hue—the lighter color will broaden your upper body.
