Regardless of the season, it is usually cold and chilly in the morning and evening. This undoubtedly calls for a scarf or sweater. When you choose the sweater, you have to keep in mind that women’s sweaters can be stylish and trendy and it takes a little knowledge about fitting and fabric to don one chicly. Here are a few pointers on how to wear it properly:

Pick out the right size- just because they are supposed to keep you warm does not mean they should make you look twice your normal size or appear to be chocking the life out of you. If you are picking a sweater made from a fabric that can easily shrink, such as cotton or wool, consider buying a size larger.

Pick up on the patterns. Be careful with stripes, especially if you’re on the heavy side, and avoid large floral prints on cardigans if you have problem areas.

Shop for the best style-Heavier women and those with large busts should generally avoid turtleneck sweaters, which can add bulk, and opt instead for V-neck sweaters or sweater vests, which elongate the torso and do not cover the neck. Belted sweaters also give shape to otherwise shapeless sweaters and can be great for women of all body types.

Accessorise carefully- A sweater will only be figure-flattering if you also wear complementary clothing and accessories. Try pairing women’s sweaters with boots and chunky bracelets and necklaces. For a softer look, wear delicate earrings and complement your sweater with a ruffled, feminine skirt.
