Dressing for your body shape takes time to slay, regardless of the season. You have to understand the ins and outs of your body shape, in order to dress it properly. Here are three tips you may find handy when dressing for your body shape this winter.
Dressing for your body shape with coats and jackets
It is getting chilly in Cheshire, so the winter jackets will be making appearance soon. When it comes to winter jackets, my advise is to spend a little bit extra so you are sure the winter jacket is a quality piece. You will be wearing a winter jacket every time you step out during winter, so it makes sense to take your time and shop for quality pieces. A wool or cashmere jacket will last year after year.
It is best to avoid boxy styles, as they tend to make you look frumpy Instead, opt for a winter jacket with a defined waist to suit most body shapes. Also, make sure the coat you go for fits properly. The best way to check the fit is to cross your arms in front of you. If you can do this with ease, then you most likely have the right fit.
Winter fashion is all about layering. The key layering is making sure you have the right layers of clothing in for your body shape so you don’t look bulky. The best way to go about this is to avoid fabrics that are super bulky, and go for streamlined silhouettes instead. This way you can ensure you stay warm under layers and look stylish.
Loose on Tight
Loose on Tight is one fashion tip for all seasons. The key here is to style a loose clothing with a tight piece to nail the chic look. For example, a loose jumper should be paired with skinny jeans to balance out the volume. A sweater dress should be styled with a pair of leggings to get the loose on tight look right.
These are a few of the tips for dressing for your body shape this winter. Do you have any fashion tips to share?
Girl, that coat! I love a classic plaid, but the gray color makes it look modern and young!
Super post 😉
I love the loose tight look. You look fab in that coat btw
I love chunky knits even though I know it makes us look a little bit heavier than we really are. But yes, I so agree with the loose on tight 🙂
Ah nice Dean.
Great tips – I am loving leggings at the moment so it is fantastic to hear that I can keep the look (fashionably) when the weather gets colder.
Oh nice. Yes you can rock that look all year long.
I live by loose on tight, bit of a life saver. I love how winter is more flexible for those of us that aren’t a size 6 model

I agree – it can be so hard to not over layer in the winter and end up looking bulky!
Yea it can be tricky when it gets really cold.
