Cleav­ages

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

For if cer­tain fash eds are to be be­lieved, to­day is a dark day for cleav­age. ‘The cleav­age is OVAH!’ pro­claim some; ‘Chest cracks are whack!’ bark oth­ers. But why are plung­ing neck­lines des­tined for the big fit­ting room in the sky? Women now pre­fer to show off a shoul­der, a hint of mid, or drop a leg bomb or two, so say some. In 2016, a flash of cleav­age is con­sid­ered trashy. But be­fore you mum­mify what your mama gave you and swad­dle your­self up to the ear­lobes – stop! Some of us aren’t ready to bury our boobs just yet.

As far as shop­ping stats go, clav­i­cle cracks are no more on the slide than Bey­oncé, with #Boob­cleav­age sta­ble on Google Trends. While the peach (bot­tom) emoji lost its own cleav­age this week, ac­tual der­riere cleav­age is ris­ing in the shop­ping search stakes – great news for fans of Mcqueen’s Bum­ster jeans (and bent-over builders). And don’t even get us started on the mer­its of toe cleav­age.

Yes, navel-tick­ling neck­lines are out – but don’t hang up your V-neck just yet. Some­times you have to say ‘no’ to fash­ion and YES to flat­ter­ing. So go on, crank up the boob/ bot­tom/toe/wrist/ nose cleav­age! Just not all at once. And know this, men: we ALL draw the line at ‘he-vage’.
