These toppers are the ultimate work pieces- and the ultimate after-work pieces- so start taking notes and shop for your shape!
If you're busty...
Choose single-breasted, slim-cut jackets. Relaxed tailoring means no clinging. Go for fitted, not tight and skip anything oversized- or you’ll look oversize too! Try a structured denim jacket, which can go dressy or casual. For example, it lets you wear a curve-hugging maxi dress without exposing too much. And the nice fit in the waist keeps it from looking boxy.
If you’re straight up and down…
If you're say a size 10 up top and a few sizes larger below, then you are most likely pear-shaped. Flared jackets that nip in at the waist show off your curvy shape and take the focus off your hips. Something with a little volume or light padding at the shoulders also makes your hips look smaller. Go long with strong shoulders, or a long boyfriend blazer that skims over the hips. Note: Pinstripes are fun and super-lengthening!
