While the internet was all about the politics of Sydney Sweeney's chest last week, they missed the real story: how the young woman's fashion choices are a master class in how to dress with a big chest. Not only is she an example of body neutrality (she never "hides" her chest), she is expert at wearing a range of looks that flatter her whole physique—not just her bosom. From her Meghan Markle-approved jeans to her drop-dead-gorgeous red carpet looks, we’re stanning her style. Here are six takeaways from the rising actor-producer’s most recent appearances.

1.  Unbutton Your Cardigan from Below, It Draws the Eye Downward

In a stunning swerve from the traditional idea that only the top of a cardigan gets unbuttoned, Sweeney hops on the trend we’re seeing more and more—a few bottom buttons left opened, and the top buttoned all the way up. This strategy draws the eye toward the midsection, while still flattering the wearer’s whole shape. Just be sure to keep accessories minimal and the sweater fitted, so that the unbuttoned part looks intentional, not sloppy or “oops I forgot to button up, Mom.”

2.   High-Waist Jeans Lengthen Your Silhouette

It’s a situation—how to look casual yet sleek with a generous bosom. If you’re wearing a loose T-shirt or blouse, like Sweeney wears (in this case, a top promoting her new film, Immaculate), pair that top with high-waist jeans that hug your midsection and rear end. Extra points if you wear a bootleg style with heels, which will make your legs look really long.

3.   Oversize Jacket + Boots = Flattering Proportions

It’s a study in contrasts. First, the oversize jacket (hers is a $1,600 number from L.A. label Mimchik) is comfy and easy, perfect for days when you don’t feel like belting your waist or pouring yourself into a stretchy get-up. Second, shorts and a pair of knee-high boots (Sweeney’s are from Miu Miu) are slightly revealing—just bare enough, without trying too hard.

4.   Matching Soft Layers Even Out Your Proportions

Matchy-matchy is not a put-down any longer, since it makes getting dressed easier and quicker. (And years of wearing matching athleisure has trained us.) Here, Sweeney’s matching white crop top, pants and spring coat (from leading Italian quiet luxury brand Brunello Cucinelli) are a lesson in how loose layers don’t overpower when their proportions are all well-fitted (they’re loose, but not too long). Additionally, the high neckline and bit of visible stomach don’t call undue attention to the bustline; instead, all of Sweeney’s figure just looks perfectly flattered.

5.   Yes, Turtlenecks Are for You

A longtime rule for big-chested women stated that turtlenecks are not flattering and should be avoided. Sydney Sweeney blows that myth sky high by pairing a short-sleeve turtleneck with a mini and stacked heels during a recent appearance in New York. She makes a turtleneck work—and you can too—by working a monochrome look. In matching black tones, her turtleneck, skirt, shoes and accessories including hosiery all work together, rather than just putting the spotlight on one body part.

6. Cleavage Is Your Fancy-Dress Superpower

Seriously, a black-tie event is everyone’s excuse to get dressed up like a movie star, and Sweeney pays homage to the starriest of movie stars like Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe when she puts on a long dress…because she’s not shy about showing off her chest. We love the way she keeps the accessories to a minimum, to maximize her perfectly fitted gown. A word to the wise: Large bosoms require support, so dresses need to have a bit of structure, with enough fabric not to show the lines of any shapewear underneath. Sweeney and her stylist Molly Dickson have this down to a T.
