An off-the-shoulder neckline is much more flattering to broad shoulders if it hangs off the body a bit, rather than clinging tightly to the frame. A slouchy shoulder area will visually "swallow" the expanse of wide shoulders; a tighter one will overemphasize it. It's also wise to choose a dress with volume below the waist; this will de-emphasize the top half's width, while a narrow-looking bottom half will make shoulders look wider. Rocking a wide-strap tank top or camisole underneath a dress is flattering to broad shoulders.
The straps will break up the wide line of the shoulders in much the same way that a chunky necklace does. This trick works especially well with a dress that's a bit more casual, rather than one that is elegant or dressy. Wearing a dress of the right hue can help to soften your shoulders. Shades that are too dark, bright or otherwise harsh, play up the wide lines of your shoulders. Choose soft hues rather than harsh shades; gray is more softening than black, while a muted rosy pink is a better choice than magenta.
Another option is to add a soft, long scarf to your dress; choose one in a light fabric and let it hang in the same way a necklace would to break up the expanse of your shoulders and neckline. Video of the Day. I think the dress is really cute. The elastic at the shoulders should help to hold the dress on your shoulders.
Just make sure you cut the elastic to a measurement that will help keep the dress up. This may require testing different lengths of elastic. Anita, you are amazing. Your attitude teaches me that one should never allow grief and sorrow should to over shadow one joy in living. Such a great dress and those Shooze. I have the pattern and the fabric so I guess you just gave the inspiration.
