I don’t know about you, but after two weeks of saying “Oh what’s just one more cookie?”, “It’s the holidays!”, “I’ll work out afterwards.”, or “I’m on vacation!”, I can hardly recognize my tummy. Food baby? Definitely yes.
I woke up this morning regretting everything I ate the past two weeks. I know I made my annual resolution to exercise more, but how do I dress the body that I have now, food baby and all? Well, here are some tips that I compiled on how to hide that post-holiday food body of yours…
1. Wear skinny jeans
I know you probably don’t feel skinny, but skinny jeans (I’m talking about the shape, not the jeans you wear when you feel skinny) will help elongate your legs. Make sure that your pants aren’t too tight around the waist or a muffin top will happen. It also helps if the pants are not a super low riser.
2. Wear heels…
preferably a pointed toe because that helps elongate the legs as well.
3. A loose top
A tunic or blouse that flares out from your stomach will help disguise it until you follow through with your New Year’s resolution of working out at least 4 times a week. But be careful to not get a baggy shirt. There’s a difference (explained in next tip).
4. Still shows off your figure
Please don’t throw a garbage bag over yourself and call it a day. You are still beautiful, despite the couple of pounds you may have gained over break, so why do yourself a disservice? Make sure the clothes you are wearing still shows that you have shape. I suggest wearing something that accentuates your waist (usually the smallest part of your body). Maybe add a belt over a loose dress or shirt or choose a top that tapers in at the waist but is still loose in the stomach area.
5. Add some flare
Accessorize! Sparkle and flare always helps to gravitate the eyes towards that accessory, rather than towards your hips.

Thanks! I appreciate it so much! I read it awhile ago and was so excited, but then it slipped my mind! Sorry, for such a late response. I will get on this right away! 🙂
I love the cocoon shape coat. I recently bought a very similar dusty pink coat too from asos, I’m very much in a Celine AW13 state of mind.
Have a look at my blog if you like 🙂
Thanks! Ooo, I love dusty pink. I’ll have to check it out. I like the blog! 🙂
Your oversize coat is AMAZINGGG! Following you dear! 🙂
Thanks so much Karla! 🙂 Following you as well!
I definitely laughed at the title of your post. I love your coat! Reminds me of Kim K’s camel coat in a way.
Oh! I haven’t been looking at Kim K’s coat. I’ll have to check it out.
You must! It’s beautiful!
