Sweetheart Necklines


So you’ve found your forever sweetheart and now you need to find your sweetheart neckline dress. A sweetheart neckline is flattering, feminine and fashionable. It’s low enough to reveal your chest and collar bone, but high enough to maintain a standard of modesty and support.

The look of a sweetheart neckline is affected by whether its paired with straps, sleeves or a strapless bodice. Combined with sleeves, a sweetheart neckline has a very traditional, coy feel whereas with a strapless bodice, it creates a very modern and sexy look. When paired with straps, a sweetheart neckline has a fun and stylish flair.

A dress with a sweetheart neckline would be well complemented by one or more of the following;

A Belt – the low point in the middle of a sweetheart neckline would beautifully draw attention to a waist belt, whether it’s simply or heavily embellished.

A Pendant – An elegant pendant is one of the most feminine and sophisticated pieces of a jewellery a bride could wear. It’s the ultimate evidence of the common phrase that ‘less is more.’

An Up-Do – If your dress gracefully shows off your chest, you needn’t then cover it with your hair. An up-do with a sweetheart neckline will elongate your neck making you look regal and sophisticated.
