It sure draws an eye to the body – a plunging neckline as many fashionistas and designers opine is ‘the’ most classic trend of every season. The appeal this time would be more than just with plunging dresses, get ready for the casual air and tailored chic styles to burn the ramps.

To open the rules on how to best dress in plunging wear; the first rule – plunging necklines suit only a handful, not everyone! It’s all about individual tastes and styles, getting out of the comfy zone, being one with the body you are born with, and most importantly – comfort and being at ease flaunting a little more skin than usual.

Unadulterated and brimming

The statement cut is a definitive sensual quality to behold – effortless and very wearable; clean and pure styling, minimalistic for sure and a promise of getting it right every time you decide to wear it low.


Unadulterated and brimming

Now that you’ve decided to take a plunge and wear the plunging neckline this spring and summers; remember, there is a difference between being daring and subtle.

For the well-endowed lass, the top of the dress should be roomy enough to accommodate the breasts

Pushing out too much skin or flattening the look can make you low inapt and awkward

A subtle plunging neckline; choose dark colours for the same, should be chosen – it wouldn’t expose too much of the assets

Can I wear a V Neck?

V Necks are flattering for many who have an elongated torso and those who have modest chest shapes or more. For women with such body types, sporting the daring infinite plunge is okay

Flaunting one body part at any given point of time is the rule here – subdue the rest of the outfit, if the cleavage has to do the talking!

No heels please- a pair of sexy flats for the occasion would add an oomph to the whole look – wouldn’t make you look ‘overdone’

To avoid mishaps and wardrobe malfunctions – double-stick tape should be used


Utterly soft and feminine

Delicate hues can help sport the plunging neckline with soft, delicate and very feminine touches. The fabric should be lightweight and choose ethereal silhouettes, namely;

Dresses that are long and flowy

Sheer layering

Psychedelic prints

Delicate pastels

Almost bare makeup

Minimal heels

Undone or messy hair!


A little boyish

For a very sexy and dramatic look, indulge in the masculine touch and tailoring – cool, sophisticated and hits bulls eye too.

Bold colours and luxe fabrics, vests and tailored blazers with low necks

Minimalistic styling, and

Motifs (if used) that speak of bold patterns


Structure me up

f you still want to stay all feminine with the touch and look, structured dresses are for you – ditch the blazer then. When wearing this look, remember to;

Have longer hemlines with the lower plunging neckline

Minimal embellishments around the neckline for a sexy sassy touch

Slight tailoring and a look that accentuates an effortless touch

Sleek and subdued makeup

Sandals or flats


Loosening up my buttons

A draped boyfriend shirt or an unbuttoned one – nothing speaks sexy more than this. A variation of sorts; build up the look for day and the night in black and white shades.

Wear them with short skirts

Wide-leg pants

Tailored shorts


No accessories or minimal and

Heels please!


Seduce the night

Plunging necklines go best with shirt dresses for the night, but wear a wide belt and flat sandals to make a mark

Cocktail parties and you can opt for prints and blocks or even hems to the knee, or long-flowing saris and silhouettes that hug the body

Ensure to dab a little shimmer and shine on the cleavage – use a liquid foundation for light coverage where needed – accolades would pour in the right way for sure


It’s what beneath that counts

Sans bra in this country, very daring! However, for ease and comfort and if you need more sophistication with plunging necklines – here are a few tips;

Soft triangle bras made from mesh, lace or sheer

A bandeau for casual evenings

Sequinned tops over the plunging neckline

Transparent shawls or stoles for winters
