I can’t manage to make up my mind. When do women make the most striking style errors? In the summer, when they wear flip-flops with ¾ pants and their ankles look like the legs of a piano? Or during winter, when they constantly wear the never-dying turtle-neck and quilt jackets that make them look like the Michelin mascot?
For the moment, I vote for “winter”. So that you won’t be able to say that I only offer critiques and not solutions…
One of the things most women don’t understand is that the area of the cleavage – the neck, clavicles, the cleavage itself – is one of the most beautiful, regardless if the breasts are big or small. In the winter, a pullover with a “V” neck (en-coeur), fitted to the lines of the body, is a brilliant idea that will make you look sexier. It is as warm as a turtle-neck sweater (which does nothing more but to make the upper part of your body look like a brick).
The reason women opt for turtle-necks instead of “V” necks is that, in their own minds, they think that hiding is better than revealing. That’s wrong. The more you cover, the more you hide your silhouette. It is true that maybe the people around you will not notice those areas with “defects”, but I guarantee that they won’t see the good parts either!
Who should never wear turtle-necks? The number 1 candidates are women with large breasts. Besides the fact that the cut of the turtle-neck will hide the most appetising part of their bodies, the cleavage, a turtle-neck will also create the sensation of a massive thorax and the so-called “uni-boob”.
In conclusion: A “V” neckline is, by far, much more attractive. It enlightens the face, it attracts attention over the universally-attractive area, it fits all body shapes and proportions and creates the basis of a sophisticated and discretely sexy figure.
