The Trouble With This Season’s Chunky Sweater and What To Do About It

All those gorgeous chunky sweaters we see on Instagram may not look as flattering in real life, especially when it’s a complete look, top and bottom.How many of you, like me have drooled over the Victoria Beckham sweater skirt and top on Net-a-Porter only to receive it and realize how thick and how fat you are going to look in it.

We recently saw the ever skinny LSD (Lauren Santo Domingo) in the below photo and jumped, even she looked bigger.So what to do…you need to either show your legs or your waist…

If your outfit is midi and relatively fitted, make a point of accentuating your hourglass figure.Try a thick belt cinched at the waist, and of course don’t forget your heels.

If your knit look is more shaped like a chunky sweater dress, then you need to show off you legs and your wrists to appear as svelte as possible.A good way to highlight your legs is to either wear dark opaque tights and same color heels, or alternatively try thigh high flat boots, these will make your legs appear endless as well.
