What might look good on me? Broad shoulders, flat chest
I'm a similar shape to you (but only average height). Are your shoulders broader than your hips? If that's the case, avoid puffed sleeves and anything with details on the shoulders. I like wearing things that give me more volume on the bottom half, to balance me out, like tulip shaped dresses and skirts, or things with pleats and details on the bottom half.
And I think being flat-chested looks cool and elegant
Ah yes, roll necks look very elegant on our shape and there are lots of them about at the moment. A simple roll neck plus something more detailed on the bottom half - ankle skimming, patterned trousers if you're feeling brave, or a flarey skirt.
Cap or very short sleeves are out because they add to the width. Although I am this shape halter necklines suit me as I have nice ( though square) shoulders. I have a couple of Pepperberry dresses which might sound odd for someone flatchested but the width of my shoulders and rib cage fill them up and as the frontages are constructed not to show much anyway the overall effect is m;odst and flattering. v necks with draping look good, the bulk of the fabric adds to your assets.
