Battle of the Bulge: What to Wear On Your Next Fat Day
Posted Thursday March 7, 2013 2:28 PM GMT
Fat days: We all have them. Those mornings when you slip into your favorite skinny jeans or body-hugging frock and it’s just not happening … even with a pair of Spanx.
Looks like it’s time for Plan B — bloat-proof clothing. Not the frumpy, unflattering kind, though. We’re talking sexy, stylish duds that show off your fashion sense and battle the bulge simultaneously.
The first trick to dressing for such a day is to stick with lose-fitting pieces. Obvi. If you go this route, remember to balance, balance, balance. Wear leggings with an oversized blouse or sweater. If you’re donning slouchy trousers, opt for a sleek, tailored blazer. Wearing baggy items on the top and bottom, will cause you to look more drab than fab.
Lastly, when in doubt, go with peplum. The flirty trend is amazing at creating a seamless hourglass figure, all while hiding any problem spots your midsection may have.
