When it comes to choosing knit styles that flatter your figure, there are some tips to keep in mind that will have you looking chic and sophisticated.
1. Vertical Lines
Knits with vertical lines can help elongate the body and create a slimming effect. Examples of vertical lines include ribbed knits, cable knits, and stitches that create a "V" shape.
2. Fitted Silhouette
Knitwear that fits close to the body with 2 to 3cm ease can help create a slimming effect, as it highlights the curves of the body and creates a streamlined silhouette.
3. Dark Colours
Dark colors, such as black, navy, and charcoal, tend to be more slimming than lighter colors. They create a visually slimming effect by minimizing the appearance of curves and bumps.
4. Simple Patterns
Simple, understated knit patterns can be more flattering than bold, busy patterns. Busy patterns can sometimes draw attention to areas of the body that we may want to minimize.
Longer length knits, such as midi length items, tunics, and duster cardigans, can help elongate the body and create a slimming effect.
Of course, these are just guidelines and everyone's body is different. Ultimately, it's important to wear knitwear that makes you feel confident and comfortable — and let your style shines ✨
