There is a time and place for everything, even when it comes to your wardrobe choices. And while there are plenty of appropriate occasions to show off your décolletage, like a sexy date with your sweetheart or your best friend’s bachelorette party, sometimes it’s better to keep the girls tucked away. Here are six times you should never wear anything low cut.
1. Job interviews
When it comes to job interviews, if you ever have doubts, the more conservative choice is the way to go. You shouldn’t let anything distract from your qualifications, experience, and charisma, particularly not a plunging neckline or a short skirt. This is a professional setting, so you should be dressing for the job you want.
2. Office meetings
Congratulations, you aced your interview and landed the job of your dreams! The art of dressing for the office is the same as dressing for the interview. In order to portray a professional image and gain the respect of your co-workers and clients, you should never reveal too much cleavage, as it will put everyone involved in an uncomfortable situation.
3. Meeting your partner’s parents
Meeting your significant other’s family can be a stressful experience. First impressions last forever and you don’t want your cleavage to be the center of that memory. You’re better off safe than sorry. Opt for a simple shift dress that you feel confident in so your personality shines through. This is particularly the case for the holidays, as there might be traditions to adhere to.
4. Religious gatherings
One should always be respectful when it comes to places of worship, so be particularly aware of what you’re wearing. A church, temple, or mosque is not the right place to reveal too much cleavage. Do some research to ensure your outfit is appropriate. Our advice is to keep it simple and low-key so you won’t stick out like a sore thumb at a venue that’s symbolic for its virtue.
A wedding is a celebration to be shared with your closest friends and family. Therefore, you should take into account the bride’s feelings when picking your look for the day. This is especially the case if you are part of the wedding party, as you want to make sure not to draw attention away from your friend’s big day. You can never go wrong with feminine and flirty dresses in bright sorbet hues. Just make sure to check the neckline.
In addition to wearing black, you might also want to consider how much cleavage you’re revealing when attending a funeral service. More often than not, funerals include ceremonies that are held at places of worship, and it would be wise to steer clear of anything too provocative that might offend others who are present.
