When cold weather comes around, it is time to get your jumpers out of the closet. Though jumpers may be thicker than your usual garments, it does not mean they have to be unflattering. Choose the right women's jumpers for your body shape, so you can feel confident that your winter jumpers are figure flattering when the cold comes around.
Give some added volume to a small chest with a thicker jumper, such as a cable knit style. Do not be afraid to choose a sweater with embellishments, such as large buttons or a collar to give your figure some proportion. Women with a small bustline enjoy wearing chunky knit jumpers without looking overwhelmed. Pick pieces with ruffles or pleats around the chest to enhance your bustline, and opt for horizontal stripes or patterns to give your figure a curvier feel. Try a wrap sweater that ties at the waist to emphasise your curves.
Avoid large prints or designs that overwhelm your small frame, and stick to solid colours or delicate prints. Confidently wear a turtleneck or cowl-neck jumper without looking bulky, or opt for thicker knits to give your frame some added shape. Avoid jumpers that are too long and swallow your small frame; keep jumpers waist length for the best proportion. Bright colours give the illusion of a longer body frame. Layer a collared shirt under a cardigan jumper for a polished look, or belt a loose sweater in to even your proportions.
Pick a V-neck jumper to highlight a curvy bustline. Another option is a jumper which ties in the middle to accentuate a narrow waist and create an hourglass shape. Avoid jumpers that fit tightly across your chest. Choose looser, oversized styles, such as boyfriend jumpers, which button or tie to retain the curves of your feminine figure. A cardigan sweater that buttons at the waist is a good choice for a flattering fit, and it is not too tight over your curves. Pick thin, lightweight cashmere or cotton as opposed to a thick knit that adds weight to your curves.
If you are plus size, pick a sweater that fits your body, not hides it. A baggy jumper only makes you look larger than you are, so choose a jumper that fits your body, and a good option is a button-down sweater that creates a smaller waistline. Choose body skimming styles that have some structure, such as tunic-length jumpers, especially if they have waist ties. A V-neck jumper is flattering to your figure. Avoid bulky knits and thick jumpers, and instead opt for lightweight fabrics. Camouflage your arms with a batwing jumper if desired. If you are larger on bottom than on top, even up your figure with cowl-neck jumpers, or choose high-low hems.
