Top-heavy women tend to have broad shoulders or busts proportionally larger than their hips. Amy advises moving visual interest to the bottom of the sweater. “Choose designs that incorporate eye-catching elements at the hem of the sweater or employ long vertical panels for the rest of the bodice,” she suggests. With the Cooke Cardigan, Amy employs many of these principles. This buttonless jacket, designed to be worn open, features a deep vertical neckline edged in a beautiful herringbone design that slims and lengthens the body. Long sleeves also flatter women with broader upper bodies.
