I tried a criss cross sweater just to see if it would fit me. Guess what, it did! Here are some tips to help you give this style a try too.
I know, I know, this style seems like it would be a project to wear if you have curves. Having to wear a strapless is already a non-starter for most of us. However, keep in mind that you can rock this style whichever way you want to.

Find a Criss Cross Sweater in the Right Size
I am always talking about fit. In this case, the fit is more about how you want to wear this sweater. If you want to wear it on the shoulders, then you are going to want to size down. That will give you more of a snug feel.
In contrast, if you want to wear it off of the shoulders, then go with a more slouchy fit. That is what I did with the sweater the I have on.
Wear Something High Waisted
I like pairing a Criss cross sweater with high waisted bottoms. This balances out the silhouette a bit. Likewise, I don’t have to worry about my midsection showing too much. I feel comfortable and I can move.

Get It in a Color You Adore
Color isn’t going to make or break this sweater style. However, here is my advice, get a color you love. Why? That means you will be more likely to wear it. Additionally, that means it will probably fit right in with the rest of your wardrobe.
