How to Choose a Sweater Based on Your Figure

Getting to know which sweater models fit your body the best is something of fine art. You may look at a particular sweater that appeals to your sight, but once you try to put it on, it does not meet your expectations. And don’t pity yourself just yet. Here is how you can pick a sweater that fits best with your body shape. 

The Basics of Sweater Necklines

Pay attention to your curves. Do they look accented on your upper torso, lower torso, or both? If you have a big bust, a v-neck women’s sweater will look best on you. It draws the attention upward and makes your body appear more streamlined. If your curves are on your bottom, a scoop neck creates balanced attention points. 

Sweaters for Triangle Figures

Triangle figures, or pear shapes, feature full hips with narrower shoulders and smaller busts. Therefore, the sweaters must bring people’s attention to the upper part of the body to provide a balanced overall look. 

Cardigans and pullovers with a length that doesn’t surpass the hips will look best on this body figure. As for the colors, you should opt for bright tones, such as red, purple, emerald, etc. Contrast them with wide-leg pants or dark-wash jeans. 

However, if you still want to wear a long sweater, an open cardigan with a hip-length top underneath can convey a similar effect. Make sure that the colors of the cardigan and your top contrast each other. 

Sweaters for Inverted Triangles

And as you may have guessed, the sweater must bring a balance to that shape. V-neck sweaters can do this job because the V-line draws the eyes more to the center of the body’s torso. Another alternative is the women’s tunic sweater since this sweater doesn’t attract attention to the waistline. 

Sweaters for Hourglass Shapes

The hourglass shape has balanced curves around the upper and lower torsos. The waist is sharply defined, and so are the bust and hips. Therefore, the sweater you choose is supposed to highlight those strong assets. Turtleneck and wrap sweaters with V-neckline are two best models that can conform flawlessly with your figure. To enhance this effect even more, you’d better choose sweaters with lightweight fabrics and peplum shape.

Three Fashion Tips for a Tropical Vacation

Caribbean islands, Tahiti, Maldives, Hawaii, and the Bahamas are among the top tropical destinations for vacations. They are the ideal getaways for travelers who long for the sea breeze and calming whispers of the waves. For fashion nerds, however, going on a retreat is not an excuse to look shabby and unstylish.

The Fabrics

If you think that this section is too much to learn, you should imagine this situation. You are visiting Singapore, and you meet some colleagues there. If your outfit can’t handle humid weather, you will embarrass yourself with over perspiration.

Besides, the chances are that you are not going to stop only at one place in Clarke Quay. The riverside view, mall, pubs, and restaurants with international cuisines are all the amenities you can have there. Imagine if you have to explore them while bathing in sweats.

Here is a list of clothing fabrics that suits best with humid weather:

  1. Cotton
  2. Linen
  3. Rayon
  4. Denim
  5. Chambray

The Bright and Colorful Tone

A garment with colored stripes, crochet shorts, bikinis, rompers, tunics, flat sandals, beach wedges, and an embroidery bag are the items you need to include in your travel luggage. You should forget the idea of traveling light if you want to be stylish in a tropical vacation. In this context, less does not mean more because you will need to change your clothes once they get sweaty. And if you bring only a few of them, you will end up with a bunch of smelly outfits.

For men, opting for a colorful style does not mean that you can choose red or green. Navy blue, white, light brown, light gray, and khaki are your safe colors. They can deflect the heat and maintain your body temperature well.

Managing Your Outfits

stuff to packIf you are planning to travel for weeks or even months, you should think about how you are going to deal with your laundry. The good thing about going to tropical islands is that you can wash your clothes by yourself and dry them outside. Therefore, to do so, you need three to five wire hangers and a drybag.

The use of wire hangers is obvious, and you may be wondering the reasons for the drybag. First, the waterproof feature will allow you to store damp clothes without leaving a mess. Second, the seal is also strong enough to prevent the odor of dirty clothes from escaping. Third, the drybag’s design enables you to stuff many items there. If you roll your clothes, an average size drybag can fit up to 30 clothing pieces.…
