If you are like me, you try and find clothes that make you look the skinniest. That is a hard thing to do in the low-rise pants era (muffin top). I have put together a few style boards of slimming looks.
I saw on Oprah this week that a nude shoe is one of the top 10 essential items every woman should own because it automatically makes you look skinnier because it doesn't break up your leg. I better go buy some!
The skinny jeans shown here are all either mid-rise or high-rise. I am not a fan of low rise, but unfortunately that's about all I've got, so I'm forced to wear a belt with all my pants, and then the belt that I actually want to wear on top of my shirt. Does that make sense? This week my sister tried on my skinny jeans and commented that she lost 10 pounds by just trying them on!
I love a belted shirt, especially a long belted shirt. I like having length on my shirts and not having to tug and pull them down to cover my low rise pants (remind me why low rise are the norm again?). I also love anything that shows off my waist line (even when I don't have much of one to show).
I LOVE pencil skirts. They look great paired with a blazer, cardigan, blouse, tucked in shirt. Everyone should own one basic pencil skirt.
