Fall sweaters for rectangule shapes

Women with rectangle-shaped figures can wear almost anything, but some styles can really flatter their shape. If you're not so curvy, these fall sweater suggestions are perfect for your body style.

Women with rectangular-shaped figures don't have a defined waistline. Without many curves, rectangles need to avoid oversized clothing and stick with pieces that are semi-fitted but not too clingy.

Classic v-neck

The classic V-neck sweater is the perfect choice for a rectangle-shaped body type. Boatneck sweaters should be avoided because they make shoulders look too square. Partner a V-neck sweater with an A-line skirt to create the appearance of curves. Also, don't be afraid of experimenting with stripes.

      Short-sleeve cowl or turtleneck

      Short-sleeve cowlneck and turtleneck sweaters are trendy for fall and perfect for a rectangular-shaped figure. The short sleeves show off your shoulders and arms without making you look too boxy. If you're thin, add a belt to this look to help define your waistline.

          Wrap cardigan

          Another way to create some curves is with a wrap cardigan. As with the other sweaters, this one should be fitted fairly close to the body -- not oversized. For fall, look for cardigans in fun prints and with unique accents -- like fringe.
