Spam the Neckline – Scoop

The scoop neckline is a first cousin to the jewel or crew neckline, our feature from last week. What is a scoop?

scoop-style neck has a rounded neckline that dips down to reveal some portion of the upper chest. Lower than the jewel neckline, but the same general shape.

My personal definition is that part of the collarbone, at least, is revealed. Your mileage may vary on that one, but we’ll sort it in the comments. Personally, I think it’s a better neckline to show off a necklace than the jewel. It’s all in proportion.

Queen Letizia is the Queen of the Scoop, in my opinion. High scoop, low scoop, she loves it. Bonus bob sighting for those who still pine.

The Countess of Wessex has worn everything from a semi-scoop to a super scoop.
