Getting The Ideal Look With A Sweater Coat

Recently sweater coat sets made their triumphant return, and women everywhere were trilled. In fine-gauge cotton, silk, blend, or wool knit with good proportions, nothing is as stylish or fresh. The staple of every wardrobe is the cardigan. The vertical lines are great plus the cardigan gives you a clean line in front and back that glides past the odd lump or bumps that makes some other knits too revealing.

Any sweater coat you choose must fit well. Too snug and the message is pure sex appeal, or too loose and you add bulk to your silhouette. Look for sweater coat sets in a variety of colors and weights, they will last forever. The best ones are in cotton or silk, which is a little cooler for indoor and summer wear. If the cardigan is long, you may have to tuck in the accompanying shell to get the balance right. If you have waist definition you can leave it out and belt it with a thin smooth or alligator textured leather belt for a classic look. Choose sweater coat sets with a V or jewel neck that will sit comfortably at your neck.

Pullovers, both crew neck and V neck, can be an important wardrobe staple but wear both in lightweight fiber to reduce bulk, with a good shoulder pad. Be cautious with length. Often sweater coat falls right at our widest point so check the rear view. The raglan sleeve will diminish wide shoulders but can be difficult for narrow shoulders to handle. It is always the wrong choice for short-waist women.

Your sweater coat makes or breaks your outfit in terms of style, color, texture, proportions, and fit. You are as stylish or well dressed as your sweater coat says you are! Choose a sweater coat length by evaluating it from the front, not just the back. Be certain your sweater coat and tops do no hit you at the widest part of your torso. Longer is usually better, but if you go beyond the thumb joint, be sure your skirt is narrower and/or shorter.

Check the proportions of your entire outfit and be certain that it balances you out. Stay with long over short, short over long, or just slightly off equal proportions. Of course if you are petite chances are you will need to buy shorter sweater coat or locate a petite style that will work for you.
