If you’ve noticed fewer Curve Cams, it’s because everyone on the subway and streets is bundled up in heavy coats! However, everyone shed their outer shell at the networking breakfast I attended last Thursday, and here’s what I noticed: sweaters may be easy to wear, but they are not automatically flattering.
This bulky cotton sweater probably matches all sorts of things in her closet, but it doesn’t do any favors to her figure. It’s also way out of date. She was a highly educated woman with important things to say, so I’m glad I didn’t trust my first impression based on her clothes.
This sweater actually looked good when its wearer stood up to speak, but this picture is a good reminder to watch our posture when sitting. If she were going for a character, I’d say “soft and feminine,” which seems easy to do in sweaters. I want to explore how to do “commanding and powerful” in sweaters.
This woman wore a brown knit turtleneck under her suit jacket, with a matching long brown necklace. Safe and boring. She also really annoyed me. Have you ever met people at events who are just waiting for their chance to give their spiel and can’t even pretend to be interested in your answers to their questions? This woman was blatant.
I think I’ve read somewhere that large-breasted women should wear thin knits. If so, I should probably get rid of this sweater.
But I probably won’t. Sometimes a big, bulky sweater is the only thing that will make me happy. I’ll just be careful not to wear one to a networking event!
