Piling on clothes in colder weather doesn't have to lead to looking bulky. Check out these 20 figure-flattering winter trends to shop right now.
Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Casual Tailored Blazers
A structured blazer, like this Victoria's Secret jacket, $98—which is made of stretch cotton and features a stylish one-button closure—is tailored to define your shoulders and waistline.
Figure-Flattering Winter Trend: Pencil Skirts
A body-skimming tailored pencil skirt like this ASOS knee-length classic, $36, accentuates your curves without clinging or adding bulk.
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.
