You’ve probably heard of over-the-keyboard dressing, which means that the top half of the body is a key part of any look. Youtubers and vloggers introduced this type of dressing, but the pandemic has made it widespread. A sure-fire way to spice up your video call is through a hot trend for 2021—collar and neckline variations! Which necklines are trending right now? Find out below!
1. Statement Collars
These elevate any look and come in varieties of big to small and different shapes. Wide, ruffled, or exaggerated peter pan collars are sure to wow. Statement collars with a deep-v are a way to indulge in the trend with a flirty twist.

2. V-Neck Line
The v-neck is a classic neckline in clothing that shows off the collar bone, a flattering peek-a-boo for everyone. Add a deep v-neck with a statement collar, padded shoulders, asymmetrical sleeve, or strappy situation. A summer variation for warm weather is a more shallow v-neck seen in dresses made of light and flowy fabrics like chiffon and satin in varying lengths. For a more formal garment go for silk or organza fabrics in floor-length flowing gowns with glitter and sequins.

3. Asymmetrical Neckline
This neckline comes in many styles, so there’s something suitable for everyone. Most notably, the asymmetrical neckline is popular with a single sleeve, double straps on one side, or a combination of both. Find this trend on blouses, dresses, and second-skin bodysuits that are sleek and perfect for layering when transition weather comes around.

4. Square Neckline
The sharp geometrical cut of the square neckline flatters the collarbone and neck and is the perfect match for voluminous and puffy sleeves (another hot trend for this year) since they balance one another. A square neckline reveals skin while still being perfectly functional without the need for taping or additional care.

5. Cutout Neckline
There’s no denying that cutouts are everywhere this year, and the neckline is no exception. From strappy to cinched, cutout necklines are large and in charge. They give a simple neckline of any shape an extra va-va-voom factor and can be done in subtle or bold ways.
