Even the boldest dressers have an unspoken list of trends they claim just aren't for them. And chances are, whether you think you're too flat-chested or too full-chested — or have a completely different reason for avoiding the plunging neckline entirely — this tricky style tends to sit right at the top of the "Nope, not happening" list of many people's most feared clothing-related risks.
The good news, however, is that (surprise!) you don't have to go full-on J.Lo to introduce "the plunge" into your wardrobe. And what better occasion than New Year's Eve to face the look head-on — and style it however you feel most comfortable? Since you have the option to ease into things with a full-coverage V-neck — or say, "Hello, world," with a sexier, deeper option — it's actually quite simple to find a variation that isn't scary and even works for you.
