Fashion Runway


The color orange is a fun color! Bright, neon and noticeable! Orange is the color between yellow and red on the spectrum of visible light. With its enthusiasm for life, the color orange relates to adventure and risk-taking, inspiring physical confidence, competition and independence. Orange creates a look of sheer movement and always being on the go.
Fast…revved….radiant, the color orange!

Orange Fun Fact: The orange colors of carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, oranges and many other fruits and vegetables comes from carotene, a type of photosynthetic pigment. These pigments convert the light energy that the plants absorb from the sun into chemical energy from the plants’ growth. Similarly, the hues of autumn leaves are from the same pigment after chlorophyll is removed.
Orange Color Psychology: In Europe and America, surveys show that orange is the color most associated with amusement, the unconventional, extroverts, warmth, fire, energy, activity, danger, taste and aroma. The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical reaction of red and the mental reaction of yellow.

One of the major significant elements to set off a top-notch outfit is the neckline. The neckline of a garment has the ability to show off the neck and the chest area, or cover the neck in regal elegance.
The neckline is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view. Neckline also refers to the overall line between all the layers of clothing and the neck and shoulders of a person, ignoring the unseen garments.
For each item of clothing worn above the waist, the neckline is primarily a style line and may be a boundary for further shaping of the upper edge of a garment with, for example, a collar, cowl, darts or pleats.
One of the most popular and attractive necklines? The V-neck!

V-neck collars have 2 to 4 linear edges that are formed by two diagonal lines from the shoulders that meet on the chest, creating a V shape. The depth of the V can vary, ranging from demure styles to plunging. The surplice version of the V-neck (known as the portrait neckline) is an alternative. The V may also be truncated by a small bottom edge, forming a trapezoid.
V-Neck Fun Fact: The V-Neck originates from the middle east.

In addition to the showing of cleavage that the V-neck provides, the V-neck also allows for a great backdrop for a nice necklace. I feel by far that a tight neck choker is the best jewelry to highlight a V-neck garment. However, if you do prefer a longer necklace, keep the jewelry short enough that the piece dangles on the open chest area. Although long necklaces can be worn with V-necks, they don’t accent the open chest area quite the same way as a shorter necklace.

In addition to the V-neck, other types of necklines that make fashion statements are:

  1. Polo Neck/Turtlenecks – High, close-fitting collars that wrap around the neck.
  2. Jewel Neckline/Crew Neck – A round neckline that sits at the base of the throat.
  3. Scoop Neck – A curved, concave neck.
  4. Square Neck – Three linear edges, where the bottom edge meets the side edges at right angles. The bottom edge cuts across the figure horizontally and the side edges pass over the shoulders.
  5. Deep/Plunging Neckline – An extremely low neckline, in either a V, U or square shape, that reveals various amounts of cleavage. Some extend open all the way to the natural waistline. Think Jennifer Lopez!
  6. Boat Neck – A high, wide and slightly curved neckline that passes past the collar bone and hangs on both shoulders.
  7. Off-the-Shoulder: One edge, nearly linear. The neckline hangs off one shoulder.

V-neck garments look great in dresses, blouses and T-shirts. The open, sexy, pointed neckline provides the wearer with both class and comfort.
V-neckline sublime!

The size and length of the V-neck can vary as much as your fashion tastes vary. Are you on the modest side or going to the office? A higher V-neck works great and looks spectacular under an open blazer. Ready for a risqué night on the town? Knock that V-neck down to the waist with feminine, dainty fashion taste.
“I’m not sure what neckline will look good on me?”
“With your diva beauty you’ll be a hit with whatever neck will be.”
“I’m in the mood for comfort and class, yet I also want to shine.”
“Then go with a daring V-neck. The plunging neck will look divine.”
“With an open neck and peek-a-boo cleavage people may stare at me.”
“Carry yourself with style and pride. A fashion queen for all to see!”
V-Neck: A popular neckline to shimmer and shine!
