A little extra holiday weight got you down? Well, while you’re losing it, here are a few suggestions for dressing so no one notices!
My first thought when I gain weight is: big bulky sweaters! But photos don’t lie, and that is rarely the most flattering look. Here are a few better methods for you.
Fit and flare, baby! Universally flattering!
All black like a ninja!
Desperate times call for desperate measures …. fit and flare AND all black like a ninja!
(Sorry for the bad photo. Hubby had the nerve to insist his company party was NOT all about me getting a good outfit photo. Whatever.)
Long cardigan or vest, but be careful that the cardigan doesn’t cling. The structured vest is a better bet. Also, watch proportions if you’re petite.
High heels! Even just a couple inches of heel on a pair of booties can make them much more flattering. And shoe shopping is easy on the ego, since your size won’t change.
When all else fails, cover it all with a sassy coat and a big smile!
I heard on the radio this week that most people don’t lose their extra holiday pounds until July, so hey relax. We got time.
