Squared Neckline 2020

So the squared neckline 2020 is all about that sharp, geometrical cut. As mentioned above, it’s commonly done as puffy blouses and dresses. It’s quite logic that this trend has appeared in combination with voluminous pieces, as the straight lines of the neckline balances the round and puffy sleeves. It also balances the midi and maxi length and contrasts all the volume. It’s been common in all sorts of colors and with all sorts of style, perhaps with black, white and beige being the most popular.

How To Style It

When working a squared neckline there are some things to keep in mind. First of all, it’s quite chic to leave it as it is. Layered necklaces (that are oval in shape), can work with the neckline but also look a bit misplaced with the contrasting shapes. I suggest going for statement sunnies or earrings instead, if you want to make a popping impression! Or, choose necklaces with shorter chains. It’s also chic to reach for a hairdo or hair accessory when working the squared neckline, it’ll concentrate the attention to the neckline in a subtle way. It’s also favorable to go for squared necklines that are done with puffy sleeves, as you’ll have a fashion statement without having to force it. When layering, it can be a good idea to go for a cardigan or jacket that’s quite straight in its shape. More narrow pieces will help balancing the squared neckline too.

Street Style Inspiration

And some inspo! Love the yellow dress in the first pic. Such a gem with the voluminous details and ruffled neckline. Love the styling in the second pic. Really pretty how the white bag and shoes picks up the white in the pattern. Same kind of goes for the third outfit, with the dramatic orange and the matching shoes. Love the chunky boots in the fourth picture with the sweet lavender dress. Love the casual vibe in the last outfit, so chic with the mint green life and chunky sneakers!

  1. Finally the square neckline is popular! I’ve always loved this cut on dresses, but I always have a hard time finding them in stores. If our malls hadn’t closed again today, I’d be out there looking for a dress just like these! xx


    1. They’re really chic and often quite flattering! Hope you find a dress you like! Xx

    1. It’s starting to get really really big haha, we’ll see where we’ll end up. Perhaps in the early 00s?! Xx

  2. I didn’t think I liked the look of a square neckline, but these photos have made me reconsider! I do like it when it is really wide with slightly puffed sleeves, I think that looks so pretty!

  3. Hello Mia, hope you had a fantastic weekend 🙂

    I like that your trends are very focused on the small details, those that can change the vibes and the personality of the whole outfit but that appears in tiny proportions.

    This is the first time (in this season I mean) that I spot this kind of neckline, but sounds really interesting but i totally agree with you, it is important to play with proportions, in the end this is a very consistent and defined shape that needs balance with the other pieces you added. I’m here it is here to stay right?

    Have a wonderful week and thanks for your good vibes 🙂

    1. Yeah, I’m sure it’ll stick around for a while. It’s such a distinct trend and one you can apply to almost anything, so it’s definitely something designers can work with! Xx
