Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Boyfriend Cardigans

The most-flattering cardigans for many body types is a shrunken boyfriend silhouette—like this preppy Forever 21 sweater, $22.80, a V-neck button-front straight silhouette that hits at the hip.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Cigarette-Leg Jeans

Somewhere between the jegging and straight-leg is the cigarette silhouette—like these AG Jeans "Stilt" jeans, $176, which are sleek, curve-hugging pants that just graze (not grip) the knee and ankle.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Chunky-Heel Pumps

Unless you have super-slender legs, spindly heels just aren't as flattering as a more substantial shoe. These Talbots chunky-heel pumps, $149, are conservative enough to wear to the office and will easily transition to cocktail hour and nights out.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Big Scarves

A giant scarf isn't just great for keeping you warm, it's also a terrific tool for balancing outfit proportions—and (my favorite use) hiding a double chin. This season's ethnic-inspired prints, like on this Fluxus wrap, $48, also add a subtle pop of color to casual outfits and monochrome coats.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Knee-Length Skirts

Retro-inspired ladylike silhouettes are all the rage—and a knee-length A-line skirt, like this one from J. Crew, $158, in a charming print, will make nearly anyone look like she has a great hourglass shape.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Strategic Color-Blocking

This season, use geometric prints and color-blocking to your advantage. Dresses like this one from ASOS, $81, use contrasting dark and light paneling to striking, curve-enhancing effect.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Faux-Fur Collars

Love faux fur but can't take it in large doses? Try it in a trim. A plush collar—like this ASOS piece, $36, frames your face and draws attention upward.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Polka Dots

This winter, wear fun spots on your dresses, skirts and sweaters—like this boyfriend cardigan —to accentuate your best features.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Tuxedos

There's nothing more figure-flattering than head-to-toe tailoring. This winter, women's wear takes a tip from the guys—try a sharp tuxedo, like this Albert Nipon pantsuit, $280, which is made of jersey for movement and comfort.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Denim Button-Downs

A perennial favorite, denim button-down shirts in medium-to-dark washes are also super flattering. Look for styles like this J. Jill top, $56, which is subtly shaped to contour your feminine figure.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Classic Trench Coats

Here's something you'll wear for years: a sleek, knee-length belted trench—the ideal overcoat to throw on day or night, three seasons out of the year. Choose a neutral classic beige or a chic black rendition like this Banana Republic Monogram jacket, $198.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Blouses With Bows

A ladylike bow on a chic blouse looks classic and modern all at the same time. Plus, embellishment at your neckline and in the center of your body is tried-and-true slimming. Check out this Cremieux ruffle-bow top, $89, that goes just as well with jeans as it does with a satin skirt.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Long Pendant Necklaces

It's conventional fashion knowledge that a V-neckline is, by far, the most flattering—but even if you're in a crewneck, get the V-neck look with a long pendant statement necklace, which has the same effect. We like this Betsey Johnson crown, $60, for its unique shape and eye-catching rhinestones.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Dresses With Waists

This winter, ban shapeless shifts from your wardrobe. Choose a dress cinched at your natural waistline instead, like this New York & Co. charmeuse floral top and straight skirt combo, $57.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Lace Dresses With Sleeves

When you're wearing a sleeveless dress, do you find yourself always reaching for a cover-up cardigan? Why not stock up on this season's evening-wear staple: lace dresses with long sleeves. They're flattering and photogenic, and they cover your upper arms. We like this Delia's lace dress, $45.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Wide Belts

A wide statement belt will not only give any tunic or dress an instant hourglass shape, but a pretty buckle can help draw attention to the center of your body, making you look slimmer. We like this stylish White House belt, $48.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Belted Puffa Coats

Puffa jackets have come a long way since their shapeless, utilitarian skiwear roots. This year, there are more sophisticated, long-line, belted iterations than ever, like this Calvin Klein glossy, quilted style, $109, that'll look just as at home après ski or midday shopping.

Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Brimmed Hats

A brimmed hat can work wonders for your features; it can define your jawline, highlight your cheekbones and emphasize the arch of your brow. Check out some of the great woolly brimmed hats on offer this winter, like this Nordstrom floppy hat, $58.

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it.
