Sexy Collarbones and How to Dress Them!
Posted on April 11 2014
Flaunting your delicate collarbones is a subtle way to make a statement. The clavicle is the in-thing now and we just know you’re dying to show it off! If you’re looking for the best ways to try out this catching trend, we have some ideas for you.
Types of Neckline That Will Show off That Clavicle
Halters: Everybody loves a good halter neckline. Worn on the right body-type, a halter can live up to its name and stop people in their tracks! Halter-necks show off your clavicle and cleavage while also slimming down your shoulders. This style is best suited for taller women who want to flaunt their slim arms too. But, if you have a full bust or petit shoulders, you might want to avoid this trend.
Deep-V: A sensual deep-v neck is a perfect way to show off your collar bones regardless of your body type. If, however, you are blessed with an elusive hourglass figure, this trend is perfect for you! Women with fuller figures will find that the deep-v neck outfit has a slimming effect, drawing attention to your décolletage and cleavage. Be sure to not take this too far though; a deep-v if overdone can take your outfit from glam to sham.
Strapless Classics: Everyone and their mother have at least one timeless, strapless dress in their wardrobes. There’s no better way to bring attention to your collar bones and neck than with a sexy straight-across or sweetheart strapless neckline. This style, like the deep-v, is perfect for full-busted women to show off some cleavage. Ideal for flaunting your flawless arms, shoulders and collar bones, strapless dresses will never go out of fashion! Women with smaller busts might want to avoid this trend, though, especially if they lack the cleavage to pull it off.
Asymmetric Designs: The latest thing in collar-bone flaunting is definitely the asymmetrical one-shoulder dress. If you’re lucky enough to have slender shoulders and a petite frame, 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, you’ll see that one shoulder or off-the-shoulder patterns can be found almost anywhere!
Bateau or Boat Necks: This is a far more traditional way to accentuate your clavicle. Boat necks mirror the sweep of your collar bones, enhancing their natural appeal. Boat necks are very popularly used in wedding gowns and formal dresses, but with the right designs, colors and fabrics, these can be adapted to almost any occasion. This style isn’t a great idea for full-figured women.
The Quintessential Queen Anne: With its heart-shape in the front and high collar at the back, the Queen Anne neckline style is perfect for almost any figure, regardless of fullness. It elongates the body, giving the illusion of a leaner and more graceful figure. Perfect for formal gatherings, the Queen Anne neckline is a must-have if you want to flaunt your clavicle elegantly.
Show off your Collar Bones in Any Outfit
Who says collarbones only go with dresses? If you have a clavicle worth showing off, do it in anything you wear! From a simple boat-neck or deep-v t-shirt to a sexy off-the-shoulder jumper, there’s no reason not to flaunt what you’ve got. So don’t limit yourself to formal occasions and parties, if your collarbones are worthy, let them bask in the spotlight all day, every day.
The Weight of the Issue
There’s been a lot of debate about whether everyone can pull off the collarbone flaunting style. There are those who say it’s a trend reserved for the super skinny, but others beg to differ. Whether your figure is slender and lithe or full and voluptuous, a pretty décolletage is always in!
We believe the clavicle is a great way to show some skin without taking the outfit from classy to too-sexy-to-handle. Perfect for everyday and never too sensual for any occasion, clothes showing off your collarbones are all the rage, so flaunt them proudly, ladies!
