Not sure how to layer for your body type? With winter creeping in, it’s time to take on body-confidence and feel good about dressing for the season. It has a lot to do with knowing which key pieces to layer for your specific figure type. If you are wearing staple pieces that are figure-flattering, you will automatically feel more confident and happy. Style your shape with these top tips and be ready for winter.
The Cover Up
When you have feminine curves, you want to streamline your silhouette with a longline jacket that cuts just below the hips. Divert the attention from your lower body by adding a pretty scarf or detailed top. A statement necklace is also another trick to do it. Opt for pieces that instantly cinch you in the waist and skim over your curves, giving you a flattering finish.
Make It Your Own
Sleek V-shape necklines will compliment a larger bust, while stripes and patterns will balance out your bust, too. Go for clean styles and avoid ruffles at all cost. A lager bust can make you look boxy, so define your waist by adding a belt or tucking-in separates. You can also wear a jumper underneath as your base layer. This style also perfectly accommodates the hourglass figure.
The Perfect Jacket For Your Body Type
A cropped jacket works well for a tall and lean frame or the apple shape, which makes your waist appear slim and defined. This smart investment will get you layering like a pro. For the pear shape, a double breast coat will work wonders for you, balancing out heavy hips.
