OutFit: Slim dressing
Your New Year’s resolution may be to lose a few pounds, but that could take some time.
For instant results, you can make a few minor adjustments to your ensemble to enhance your best qualities. These foolproof tips work every time to create a slim, streamlined look.
First, don’t hide behind too-big clothes. Chic, fitted pieces express confidence and actually make you look thinner.
Choose the right neckline. Go with a v-neck or scoop for a large chest or broader shoulders, and a boat neck style to balance out a pear shape.
Another trick to conceal and flatter is to add a blazer or cardigan, they will subtract pounds.
Finally, accessories make all of the difference. Whether its a bright scarf or a sparkly cocktail ring, you can distract with details.
Get a fashionable jump-start while you are working toward your goals. You are sure to look as good as you feel.
