Big Bust Layering by Example: One More Time!

For the past month, we've been showing you how to build a polished look from a comfortable base. We even revealed stylist Christina Frik's formula to take you from working from home to running around.

Today's look begins with a striped tunic over leggings. Don't even worry about the ultra-wide armholes. These are usually off limits to busty women who don't want to flash their bras at the world, but we've got a great sports bra to share with you in our next post.

Next, Christina uses a grey blazer and one of our button front shirts for large busted women to add structure and polish to the look. Instead of ankle boots, she's chosen knee-length boots. When it comes to proportion, her rule of thumb is to pair "low" shoes with low hems (like a knee-length dress) and high boots with high hems (like this tunic).

Finally, she adds the finishing touches: a resin link necklace for interest, and a red purse to energize the entire look.
