it’s that time of year when calorie counting flies out the window. at least for me. there’s nothing i love more than mashed potatoes or stuffing at thanksgiving. how about a homemade snickerdoodle or russian teacake scored from a cookie exchange? so how do we hide that extra pound or two that’s inevitable to appear as we march through the holidays? today, i’ll share a few of my tried-and-true figure flattering secrets that help us look slimmer and shave off pounds.
when matching your shoes, pants or skirt, and top there’s no visual break to the eye, creating a vertical line. think you don’t look good in black? add a pop of color around your neck with a scarf or blouse with a print.
structured vest, jacket or blazer
wide shoulders and crisp straight lines help diminish curves.
match your shoe color to your leg
come summer match bare legs with a nude pump. winter? black tights and black shoe or boot.
cinch it with a belt
i know, i know, many of us think we can’t wear belts. but think again. belts add definition where we need it.
camouflage your middle with an oversized sweater, tunic, or poncho that’s designed to wear untucked.
