If you are trying to look your best by displaying these sexy beauty bones, we have a few style tips on how to do so with charm, poise, and class. It is important to remember that the ultimate goal is to show them off with confidence and dignity.

Let your collarbones and bare skin do all the talking with dainty necklaces and earrings to pull your look together.

In this post, we discuss the best necklines to show off your clavicles and how to consider your body type and size when looking to participate in this timeless trend.

Lastly, we cover the things you can do to improve the prominence of your collarbones. 

Best Necklines to Show Your Collarbones


Everybody loves a halter neckline. A halter neckline can live up to its name and stop people in their tracks when worn to the right venue and with the right attitude.  Halter necklines show off your clavicle and usually feature cleavage. This neckline also gives your shoulders the illusion of being slimmer.

Some halter styles can work wonders for your collar bones 

Halter necklines are ideal if you want to give your body the illusion of being long and lean. The halter style draws the eye to your body in a vertical way, which provides you with the appearance of being taller and slimmer.

If you have a full bust or petit shoulders consider a two-piece halter dress with a midi length skirt and super high stilettos to pull off this display of collarbones.  


A beautiful deep-v neckline is a perfect way to show off your collar bones and flatters most body types. If you have an hourglass body type, your body does most of the work to pull this look off. 

If you are curvier,  you will find that the deep-v neck has a slimming effect, drawing attention to your décolletage and cleavage.

Deep-v necklines that also show off your collarbones are not simple to pull off without losing your dignity. Be sure to focus on putting together a hairstyle that works for this neckline and choose simple makeup with red lips to keep your look visually balanced. Red lips will pull attention from your bust area and draws eyes to your face.


We each have one timeless, strapless dress in closets. It is our go-to dress that slims and makes us super confident in our body. There is no better way to bring attention to your collar bones and neck than with a sexy straight-across or sweetheart strapless neckline.

Your collarbones are on full display in strapless styles.

Strapless bandage dresses are ideal for women with an ample bustline. The dress type helps you flaunt your flawless arms, shoulders, and collar bones. If you have a smaller bustline, the look is the perfect time to bring in some beautiful jewelry and statement pieces.

Here are some tips on how to rock a strapless dress. 


The latest thing in collarbone flaunting is the asymmetrical one-shoulder dress. If you have slim shoulders, a petite frame, or an ample bustline an asymmetric design is a great way to draw attention to your well-defined clavicle.

From structured architectural designs to fun and flirty summer dresses, asymmetric necklines are often designed to be flattering and feminine.  


Bateau necklines are ideal for accentuating your clavicle while keeping your dignity firmly intact. They are considered one of the more traditional ways to emphasize your clavicle. Boat or square necks mirror the sweep of your collarbones, enhancing their natural appeal. Boat necks are very popularly used in wedding gowns and formal dresses because their style is simple, ultra feminine, and leaves enough to the imagination.

How To Develop Your Collarbones

If you don't have naturally visible collarbones, there are ways to make them more physically prominent and beautiful. 

Start by losing weight

If you're overweight you're not going to have visible collarbones.

Reducing your overall body fat and toning up gives your beauty bones a chance to shine. Look to improve your diet and get plenty of exercises to kickstart the process.

Overtime incorporate exercises that target your neck and chest for extra definition.

Try Yoga Postures

Yoga is an excellent way to get rid of the fat and tone the muscles surrounding the neck area.

Get sharp, defined collar bones with yoga poses from the peacock and the plank to the bridge pose. This article by The Health Site provides all the detail you need to get going.

Cheat With Make-Up

The old-school way to accentuate collarbones when wearing off-the-shoulder tops or strappy dresses is by jutting out our shoulders (admit it!).

The next evolution is to finish the look with a shimmering Luminizing Powder. Simply apply the powders you use to accentuate your cheekbones — using the same techniques — on your décolletage.
