When you leave skin space at your neckline below the collarbone, you draw positive attention to your face. There is now enough space for light to reflect off your skin and this accentuates your smile and your eyes (as shown in this Khaliah Ali SimplicityPattern1945). All of this gives out the impression that you are an open-minded person.
Wear a high neckline or a shirt buttoned at the collar and people can get the mistaken impression that you are rigid and set in your attitudes. A dark coloured neckline right under your chin can also cast unflattering shadows on your face.
Your face shape as well as the length of your neck determines the best neckline shapes for you. Forget the wrinkles and trying to hide them. An open neckline in a woman over 40 shows your self-confidence in being a modern woman.
