Hey ladies! So, who else might've had
an extra serving (or two) during the holidays and is now contemplating the winter blues with a side of post-celebration fluffiness? 🍹💙 Fear not, my favorite gals, because I'm
here to tell you to set down that extra drink (no judgments here!) and let's kick those winter vibes together! With just two minutes of your time, I'm sharing nine tips that are like a fabulous fashion detox – they'll have you feeling better, lighter, and ready to conquer the world, one killer outfit at a time. So, put that drink aside, grab a dose of inspiration, and let's toast to feeling amazing! 🥂💃✨
Opt for Flattering Jeans: Consider swapping skinny jeans for boot cut or wide leg jeans. This not only adds height to your frame but also diverts attention from your tummy and thighs. A dark wash with a high waist, paired with pointy-toed heeled shoes, can maximize the effect.
Define Your Waist: Embrace clothing that defines your waist to create the illusion of an hourglass figure. Choose high-waisted bottoms in structured fabrics, tuck in loose-fitting shirts, or cinch with a small belt, and consider shapewear for added definition.
Wear the Right Size: Contrary to popular belief, wearing clothes that fit correctly, rather than going a size up or down, is key. Bulky clothing can make you appear larger, and sizing down may draw attention to areas you'd rather not highlight. Always choose clothing that fits true to size. (We can help you with $15 hemming!)
Choose the Right Undergarments: Pay attention to undergarments; they are as important as your outfit. Properly fitted bras and panties are essential. In unforgiving fabrics, consider skipping underwear altogether. It's your little secret!
Avoid Rounded Shoes: Opt for pointed-toed shoes over rounded ones. They elongate your legs, creating the illusion of length. While rounded shoes may look cute, they tend to make your legs appear shorter.(This rule changes with the new wide-leg trend. Stop in and we'd love to help you!)
Invest in Shapewear: Shapewear isn't just for special occasions. Make it a daily staple for extra support, hiding imperfections, and achieving an overall slimmer appearance. Control Camisole, spandex shorts and control tights can cover all your bases. I personally use the bodysuit style that allows you to wear your bra separately. (Chose the just above the knee length to prevent rolling in your denim.)
Dress in One Color: Dressing in one color (Monochromatic is on trend!) creates a cohesive, lengthening look. Avoid contrasting colors or prints, as they draw attention to the waistline. A monochromatic outfit can simplify and
elongate your body.
Choose V-Neck Tops: Wear V-neck tops to elongate your upper body, providing balance to your hips and thighs. This tip is especially helpful for those with a bigger bust, as it draws attention away from areas you may want to downplay.
Accessorize Wisely: Strategic use of accessories can divert attention from areas you'd like to minimize. Long necklaces shift focus from the hips, big earrings draw attention to the face, and belts help define the waist. The thickness of the belt matters. Stop in and we will help you choose.
Remember, these tips are meant to enhance your confidence and style. Feel free to embrace what works best for you and have fun experimenting with different looks!
