  If you go for classic cuts, solid color button ups, and timeless pieces you will enjoy this sweater!  It cinches at the waist and is flattering for the figure.

If you like to wear jeans, leggings, flats, or flat boots this sweater will be the perfect way to dress up!

 The draping is elegant and stunning for a holiday party.  The darker red is wonderful for evening and a fabulous fall color.  Pearls or gold jewelry will compliment this nicely.

I love this green color! This would look great with an A line skirt and unique jewelry.

 Add leggings and over the knee boots for an edgy yet trendy look.  The sequins make this very festive.

The Curvy Woman's Guide to Dressing this Winter


Color me beautiful recycled necklace $52 @ EcoBlingCouture

The chunkier the better! Buy a necklace with two or three layers. Try longer earrings to elongate the face and don’t forget, color in the jewelry will draw attention to facial features.  If you aren’t into big jewely, get a necklace with a pendant that represents you!


Amber Sun Long Ruffle Cardigan $52.90 @ Nordstrom

Try One size smaller than your normal size and make sure whatever you wear underneath or on bottom is fitted, not baggy.  Avoid too much fabric on the hips and prints on the lower part of the sweater.


Ponte Knit Cowl Neck for $49.99 @ Lane Bryant

¾ sleeve/short sleeve with empire waist or shaped to fit curves, make sure it hits right above or below the knee , if it is too short it will accentuate the knees. 


Madda Girl Ditta Boot for $59.95 @ DSW

Sleek and fitted, no ruching, no cowboy boots. Boots should go all the way over the calf and try to avoid too many details. This boot has great lines to elongate the leg and there is room for the calves!


Take the Wheel Jacket for $98.00 @ Anthopologie

Hip length with rolled up sleeves.  If you are top heavy avoid big lapels or too much ruffles going on at the top.  I love this jacket because it has a fit that allows room at the bust and has a nice line to it to allow room for the hips.
