So if you need an Instant ‘Flab to Fab’ fix then here are some of my tips and tricks:
- Light Layering
- Hiding those love handles well
- Showing your best features (focusing away from problem areas)
- Wearing colours that are forgiving
- Silhouettes that help make you look slimmer
I shot this outfit mid-November after my trip to Bali and all the amazing food I had eaten was starting to show on my hips.
The Outfit of the day was – Dual coloured shift dress with a Vest and leopard pumps.
- As stated above I used all those tricks to hide any flab and you would not have noticed the same had I not mentioned the same in the text above.
- I wore a dual coloured shift dress. Shift dresses are really great especially in summers as they do not fit and fall straight they give you breathing space especially when the temperatures rise and great to cover up all love handles or tummy bulges.
- Next I layered with a thin Olive Green vest and I zipped it up till the waist. The vest adds another dimension to the look.
- I also stayed within the same colour family- shades of green, blue and browns which again made the look seamless.
- The length of the dress showed my best feature (not boasting) my limbs which look toned and the heels added to the illusion of height.
- I carried a satchel bag which again helped add that illusion of length to the look as it had a longer handle/ strap to hold on to.
- Keeping the hair side parted and left loose and worn straight takes away from any weight gain on face/ cheeks. I have kept the face pretty bare and added a swipe of pink lipstick. However if you like to make your face look toned you can contour your cheeks using a bronzer and highlighter.
