Elements of fashion neckline

  1. 1. NECKLINE
  2. 2. NECKLINE The neckline is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view. Neckline also refers to the overall line between all the layers of clothing and the neck and shoulders of a person, ignoring the unseen undergarments. For each garment worn above the waist, the neckline is primarily a style line and may be a boundary for further shaping of the upper edge of a garment with, for example, a collar, cowl, darts or pleats. In that respect it is similar to the waistline and hemline.
  3. 3. jewel neckline jewel neckline (circular) these are round and sit at the base of the throat, and are also called the T-shirt neckline or crew neck.
  4. 4. JEWEL NECKLINE jewel neckline (circular) these are round and sit at the base of the throat, and are also called the T-shirt neckline or crew neck.
  5. 5. Jewel necks are circular and fit fairly tightly around the neck. They are more often seen in casual wear than in bridal gowns, but they work with certain types of wedding dresses. Since the jewel neck hugs the neck fairly closely, they work best for slender necks and should be avoided by brides with wide necks or broad shoulders JEWEL NECKLINE
  6. 6. SCOOP NECK these have a curved U-shape, with the arms of the U hanging on the shoulders. The depth of the U can vary, ranging from demure styles to plunging
  7. 7. SCOOP NECK The U-shaped scoop neck varies in depth, from conservative to scandalous, but one that falls no more than 6 inches below the collarbone generally covers the garments. The rounded shape of the scoop neckline can be used to balance out a more linear or angular face.
  8. 8. SCOOP NECK The U-shaped scoop neck varies in depth, from conservative to scandalous, but one that falls no more than 6 inches below the collarbone generally covers the garments. The rounded shape of the scoop neckline can be used to balance out a more linear or angular face.
  9. 9. V-NECK originate from the middle east, these are formed by two diagonal lines from the shoulders that meet on the chest creating a V shape. The depth of the V can vary, ranging from demure styles to plunging. The surplice version of this neckline (known as a portrait neckline) is an alternative. The V may also be truncated by a small bottom edge, forming a trapezoid.
  10. 10. V-NECK • V-necks are classic necklines and look good on almost anyone. • They are generally seen in casual wear, but V-necks are a wonderful choice to visually “lengthen out” the features of brides who have short necks or faces. • They are also generally a good choice for someone with a rounded, softer face.
  11. 11. SQUARE NECK These are characterized by three linear edges, the bottom edge meeting the side edges at right angles. The bottom edge cuts across the figure horizontally and the side edges pass over the shoulders. A special case of this is the slot neckline, in which the side edges are very close (roughly the width of the collar-bone points), forming a narrow slot.
  12. 12. SQUARE NECK Square necklines have gained popularity in recent years. Their geometric shape – three lines at right angles that form a square – is a modern and flattering alternative to traditional necklines. Square necks look especially good on brides with rounded facial shapes. They will emphasize a hefty build or broad shoulders, so be careful with the square neckline if that’s your body type.
  13. 13. DEEP OR PLUNGING NECK these are low necklines, in either V, U or square shapes, that reveal various amounts of cleavage.
  14. 14. BOAT NECK these have a high, wide, slightly curved neckline that pass past the collarbones and hang on both shoulders, and are also called bateau necklines or Sabrina necklines. A variation is the portrait neckline.
  15. 15. Bateau neck wedding dresses have a narrow, wide slot for the neck which is very modern and chic. Bateau necklines flatter brides with slender necks and narrow shoulders, but emphasize wide necks and shoulders. One word of caution about bateau neckline for Mormon wedding dresses: make sure that the opening doesn’t extend beyond the bra straps, or there will be an issue with modesty or constantly needing to adjust the dress to cover the garments. BOAT NECK
  16. 16. OFF-THE-SHOULDER these are similar to boat necklines but are significantly lower, below the shoulders and collar bone. Usually these pass over the arms but, in the strapless neckline style, may pass under the arms. These necklines accentuate the shoulders and neck of the wearer. the T-shirt neckline or crew neck.
  17. 17. OFF-THE- SHOULDER
  18. 18. ONE-SHOULDER NECKLINES one-shoulder necklines (one edge, nearly linear) these are asymmetrical linear necklines that cut across the torso diagonally, usually from one shoulder to under the other arm.
  19. 19. HALTER NECKLINES halter necklines (linear, side edges converge on neck) these feature a V-neck or scoop front neckline with straps which wrap around and connect at the nape of the neck.
  20. 20. SWEETHEART NECKLINE sweetheart necklines (side edges linear, curved bottom edge concave down) these have a curved bottom edge that is concave down and usually doubly scalloped to resemble the top half of a heart. The side edges often converge on the neck, similar to halter necklines. Sweetheart necklines accentuate the bosom.
  21. 21. The sweetheart neck is similar to a square neck but it is scalloped at the bottom, giving the rounded appearance of a heart. Because of its romantic symbolism and its suggestion of innocence and joy, the sweetheart neckline is an extremely popular choice for weddings. SWEETHEART NECKLINE
  22. 22. SWEETHEART NECKLINE Almost any bride can pull off a sweetheart neckline, but its soft curves especially complement angular facial features and bone structures.
  23. 23. KEYHOLE NECKLINES keyhole necklines these are similar to halter necklines, but the converging diagonal lines meet in front of the neck, forming a "keyhole". More generally, these feature a central hole, usually just below the collar bones. These necklines are seen infrequently.
  24. 24. SURPLICE NECKLINE these are similar to how a bathrobe's neckline is formed by one side of the garment overlapping the other. For a dress, the lower layer is usually sewn to the top layer just under the bust.
  25. 25. SURPLICE NECKLINE Similar to a bathrobe, the surplice neckline forms a V shape with one side overlapping the other. A surplice wedding dress with frog closures lining the overlapping hem looks very exotic. The surplice neckline balances round facial features and adds length to the face and neck. It is a very popular neckline for women’s formalwear, and it’s easy to find surplice bridesmaids’ dresses to complement the bride’s gown.
