I thought it was only fair since we talked about How To Dress Broad Shoulders on Tuesday that we talk about How To Dress Narrow Shoulders today.
I think I would be in the narrow shoulders category (my shoulders are definitely narrower than my hips!).
Here are some tips if you have narrow shoulders:
- Make sure that your shoulder seams are at the right place and fit perfectly, which means that the seam extends just past your natural shoulder.
- Puffy sleeves work well (although I’m not seeing a lot of puffy sleeves right now).
- On shirts, the bigger the collar, the better! Also scarves look great if you have narrow shoulders.
- Cap sleeves also work well as long as you don’t have large arms, then I would go with a little longer sleeve.
- A wide v-neck also leads the eye to the side which has a broadening effect.
- Use shoulder pads to widen shoulders (subtly of course).
- Opt for wider straps instead of smaller ones.
- You can scrunch your sleeves a bit and blouse up your upper arm area, which draws attention up and away.
Remember, these are just general rules. For instance, I have narrow shoulders but I don’t like a square neck. But I do think these are good guidelines!
If you have narrow shoulders, do you think most of these work for you? Did you see my post on How To Dress Broad Shoulders?
Beauty For the Heart~~This is a great verse for us as women. “In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine. They are to teach what is good, so they may encourage the young women to love their husbands and to love their children, to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, kind, and submissive to their husbands, so that God’s message will not be slandered.” Titus 2:3-5
We have a responsibility to train and encourage younger women. To do that, we need to be mature in our relationship with Christ. It’s important that we are growing in holiness!
Have a blessed day!
