3 Look Slimmer

clothing,knitting,fur,footwear,outerwear, One nice thing about cardigans is they help give the appearance of a slimmer figure. A large cozy cardigan is perfect for concealing any lumps and bumps you want to hide. Add a thin belt around your waist under the cardigan for an even slimmer look.

4 Smaller Bust

5 Play with Fabrics

clothing,undergarment,lingerie,brassiere,active undergarment, Cardigans can add texture to your outfit. You can opt for a knitted or lace cardigan if you want texture. Jersey and cashmere are great for softness and comfort. What’s your favorite cardigan material?

6 Choose the Right Neckline

clothing,sleeve,outerwear,denim,leather, V-neck cardigans look best with square or straight necklines underneath. If your cardigan is scoop neck, pair it with a scoop neck top. A curved, straight, or waterfall cardigan works well with most every neckline top.

7 Consider Length

clothing,sleeve,outerwear,jeans,spring, A cropped cardigan looks good with either a slightly longer or much, much longer shirt. On the other hand, a hip length cardigan is best with a top that is shorter than the outside layer. If your cardigan is just a bit shorter than hip length, a shirt that is just a little longer is good.
