Ever since I discovered J Lo’s infamous Versace dress she wore at the Grammys years ago (yes, it has its own Wikipedia entry!), I was hooked! The dress itself is stunning, no doubt about it, but that (extremely) deep plunging neckline looked beautiful on her! It was shockingly low, but absolutely gorgeous! I’ve always loved open back designs, especially in a dress, but my second favorite one has to be the plunging neckline (like on this white long sleeved romper worn here). Both of these might require extras like backless bras and garment tape, but it’s well worth it! And since I started seeing a lot of pieces with low necklines everywhere lately, I’d like to point out why I think they should be worn beyond this season.
A plunging neckline works for majority of body types.
I find that both women with big or small chests can pull off a low neckline. Yes, even small chested girls (sincerely yours included). A more draped piece might help with the volume. I chose this pretty white plunging neckline romper that isn’t skin tight, which is great for my body type. Depending on the fabric and shape of the cut, there might be a need for some garment tape to keep it in place.
It’s a timeless cut that can be equally sexy and classy.
This is true, of course, as long as there is balance in the rest of the outfit. And by balance I mean choosing either a drapey piece that looks equally nice short or long, or if it’s body hugging, a longer length piece for your lower body (midi/maxi skirts or dresses, and pants). This way the sexy, yet classy look can be maintained.
It makes a perfect cut for layering your favorite jewelry pieces or lacy bras.
This is self-explanatory 🙂 This cut can go so well with chokers and long necklaces with pendants. Or, for a more daring look, it can provide a provocative peek at your lingerie underneath. Those lacy pieces are too pretty to be hidden, am I right? 😉 And speaking of which, if you’d like some ideas for lacy bras and bralettes, you can check out my post about some gorgeous pieces that you’ll want more exposed than covered!
What, if anything, do you love (or hate?) about plunging necklines? Have a lovely day, pretties! xo
