Personal Overview

Necklines for Ellen

Tops, shirts and blouses that are worn out will look better on you than when tucked in. A tucked in shirt, blouse or top will look best if worn with an open jacket, vest or cardigan.

Because you have a medium neck length, your best necklines include styles that are not too deeply cut and those that do not climb the neck too high.


General Overview


Necklines frame the face, this makes them a significant focal point of any garment. Your neckline should complement the shape of your face and balance the proportions of your body. The following factors have been taken into consideration when selecting your best styles in necklines:

  • Your face shape.
  • The width and slope of your shoulders.
  • Your bust size.
  • Your age.
  • Your neck's length and its circumference.
  • Your horizontal proportions.
  • Any relevant prominent features you may have, e.g. a dowager's hump.

When buying shirts or blouses, look for styles that are simple and elegant. The more elaborately designed or embellished, the fewer options you will have when trying to match them with other pieces in your wardrobe. The best blouses are those that are not too sheer, or too tight fitting. While deep necklines may be eye-catching and provocative, they are not recommended for business wear. Remember, the more you show the less seriously you will be taken.
