After my post on flattering a soft chin, I had repeated requests for a post on flattering a pointed chin. Here are a few quick tips.
- Shorter hairs styles need some hair at the nape of the neck, this will balance your chin, styles that feather out at the neck or are longer will flatter. If you have medium or long hair this will happen naturally, a few loose tendrils when tied up will soften your chin.
- Look for wider, drop earrings.
- Necklines need to be more angular, avoid curved necklines such as crew and scoop, opt for V, square or boat.
- Glasses to have design details, angles or flare should be on the bottom of the frame only. Avoid thick round frames
Thank you. Guess I will have to move beyond my post earring only habit.
Imogen, I find your 'hair at the pape' advice excellent for all short hairstyles on women 50+. The high-clipped neckline hardens any style. Women past 50 can look great in pixie cuts (like Judy Dench's) but need to keep soft tendrils (not necessarily long) at the neck unless they intend to look really butch.
OOps, that's 'nape". Need more coffee!
Ha, haa, you really made giggle about the `butch´look. So very true, may I add.
Rather cool place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything connected to them. BTW, why don't you change design :).
Imogene, my chin looks softer/rounder when I’m not smiling, but when I smile it forms a strong V shape. Which chin shape should I dress for? Really enjoying your website!
The one with your mouth shut! Everyone’s looks longer with mouth open.
