When a woman’s upper and lower body measure the same width, she is considered proportional. “The key to flattering proportional shapes is to preserve the balance between the shoulders and bust with the hips and thighs,” Amy says. She recommends pairing a motif at the neckline with a similar design at the hips and cuffs. For example, yoked sweaters with colorwork repeated at the shoulders, sleeves, and hem particularly fl atter a proportional form.

Proportional figures look great in sweaters like Amy’s Cornsilk Pullover. This trim, tailored sweater sports a delicate shawl collar, vertical darts for waist shaping, and long wide garter-stitch bands at the cuffs and hem. With its clean lines and classic styling, the Cornsilk makes a perfect wardrobe staple.
