Minimize wide shoulders
On a V-shaped upper body, a fitted and tapered jacket can end up looking like a shoulder-padded power suit from the 1980s.
To add proportion, find a jacket with soft, raglan sleeves, which create a more rounded silhouette.
• Select a jacket that falls straight down from the shoulder.
• Avoid tailored blazers in favor of less-structured looks.
• Go for sleeves set off the shoulder.
