I totally dug Sally’s post on saying “Yes and …” and decided that I’d make it a theme for this weekend’s recommended reading roundup.
So why not take her advice and then use the following blog posts as inspiration for an outfit or two over the next week. Please do share which you’re going to try out and how you go!
I’m sharing here how I wear my cropped grey leopard fluffy sweater, which is not the easiest item to wear as I’m an H shape, so lack a defined waist (and cropped styles cut you right cross the waist so can add unflattering horizontals if you’re not careful).
My tip is to wear a similar colour undertop to your bottom (here I’m all white, I also may do all navy or all black) and that extends down to your high hip level, it’s also close fitting (though you could try a loose fitting option too). And then the baggier nature of the cropped sweater makes my waist look slimmer in comparison to the under top.
