Rules to follow-collars
In order to hide the disadvantages of our shoulders, the easiest way to choose the collar suits you the best. According to shapes, we could categorize collars into: round, square, heart, boat neckline，v-shape neckline, etc. Check our advice!
- Round collar: the smaller the round collar, the shorter your neck may look to be. Try to show more the skin of your neck and collarbone.

Rules to follow-sleeves
The next rules to follow are about sleeves. Puff sleeves seems to be the trend in 2020 summer, but it doesn’t suit everyone. The most common sleeve types are: puff sleeves, flare sleeves, bishop sleeves, dropped shoulder sleeves, etc.
- Ladies with narrow shoulders and slopping shoulders should wear more puff sleeves, as the puff will increase the width of your shoulder; or you could try with blouses have shoulder pads inside
- For those who have broad shoulders, short puff sleeves won’t suit you well. We would recommend you shirts have flare sleeves, bishop sleeves, and dropped shoulder sleeves. These designs will balance your shoulder width with your upper body. Avoid complicated design above shoulder line.
