Regardless of your style and how on trend you like to be, there are certain styles and trends that we all admire from afar but hesitate to actually wear ourselves. The plunging neckline tends to be one of those trends that many women, of all ages, hold back on actually wearing themselves. We all see our favorite celebs and style icons wearing plunging necklines on a regular basis and they look great, so why are we holding back with ourselves? Well, you may just need a little inspiration and some ideas on how to look great in a flirty, plunging neckline. Sound like you? You’re in the right place then because we’re sharing our favorite tips to help you pull off the plunging neckline like a pro.
Layer It Over
Let’s face it: wearing a plunging neckline can be intimidating and leave you feeling a bit more exposed than you’re used to. If you’re not quite comfortable showing that area of your body so openly, one of our favorite tricks for rocking this trend but still look and feel great is to actually just wear a layer over it. For example, if you have a plunging neckline in a flirty dress one way to ‘tone down’ the plunging neckline aspect of the garment can be to wear a leather jacket over the dress. Another way to work with this idea is to wear a scarf or long necklace over a shirt or dress with a plunging neckline. You’re still going to see the garment but it can help you feel a bit more ‘covered’ until you feel more comfortable with the plunging. This can add some structure and really help you to feel more comfortable with the plunging neckline but also feel a bit more covered. It’s a great way to really transition into the trend without going full on with it right off the bat.
Fit is Key
Regardless of how you decide to wear the plunging neckline look, one thing is true across the board. What is it, you ask? It’s essential to make sure that the garment that you’re wearing with the plunging neckline fits you really well. We’ve all heard of and seen wardrobe malfunctions, one of the ways that you can avoid that happening to you when you’re wearing your flirty plunging neckline is to make sure that your shirt/dress/etc. fits you well. When your garment fits you well, you’re going to be much less likely to have a slip-up. Plus, you’ll feel a lot more comfortable and confident when the fit is right.
Don’t Be Afraid of Tape
How do celebs make plunging necklines look so effortless? Truthfully, one of the secrets to rocking this type of neckline and looking great is to add a little double-sided tape to the mix. Depending on the fabric of your garment, you may not need a lot of tape to get the job done. But one of the best things about double sided tape is it will help keep the garment in place, you’ll feel much more secure and in turn you’ll look great!
