Q&A: The Best Necklines for a Short Neck

Q:  If you are not born with a long swan like neck, can you wear boatneck and/or funnel necklines? Obviously these necklines don’t visually elongate the neck as V necklines do, right?

Long Sleeve Cowlneck SweaterA:  If your neck is on the short side (as mine is), V necklines and deep scoop necklines are the most figure flattering.  Boatneck necklines also work pretty well, but funnel necklines and turtlenecks aren’t your friend.  The one exception to the rule: you can wear turtlenecks with oversized, drapey necklines–the verticality of the oversized drape tricks the eye into thinking your neck is longer than it actually is.
