Open Shoulder Women Sweaters: Sloppy or Sexy? Open shoulders are a bold technique used by many fashionistas this spring and summer. Thanks to the original cut, this off-the-shoulder sweater will fit well on any figure. The lowered shoulder line will hide full arms, stylishly accentuate the graceful neck and collarbone. Open Shoulder Women Sweaters in a loose silhouette hide any imperfections, while the form-fitting and fitted models accentuate the beautiful curves of the body. It is important to remember that a textured chunky knit sweater can get fat. The same goes for models with light shades. And dark monophonic options will hide unnecessary volumes. A transverse strip will visually expand the figure, and vertical knitted braids will add harmony.
