5 Fall Styles That Make You Look 5 Pounds Thinner

Yay, new Fall sweaters!


I love the idea of sweaters, especially the big sloppy ones that bury you and hang down over your hips, drape down your fingers…right until I look in the mirror and I’m not sure if it’s me or my Uncle Bernaurd (a hearty, ski sweater wearing guy that says “heh!” a lot.)  I like Uncle Bernaurd, but he outweighs me by 55 pounds.

Finally, my fashion-savvy girlie Sheila explained that anyone can wear any new style, you just have to modify it for your body type.  Sort of like this…


5 Fall Styles That Take 5 Pounds Off Your Look

1. Jean Jacket & Maxi Skirt: wear a tapered waist jean jacket and darker accessories that pull the eye up and down.  Borrowing your brother’s jean jacket will add an extra 10 pounds.

2. Big Shirt, Leggings & Combat Boots: use a thin-knit shirt instead of a bulky flannel and use an eye-catching scarf or accessory for the neckline.




3. Sheath Dress With Belted Cardigan: I looove sheath dresses, they cover a multitude of lumps.  To whittle the waist, add a thin belt–not chunky–and a slim knit cardigan, not one of the bulky woolen ones.




4.  Animal Prints: a big ol’ black and white tiger cape or full on leopard dress makes anyone gigantic.  I don’t care.  Unless you’re Miranda Kerr, in which case we hate you.  Use the animal print accents in accessories: scarves, purses, belts and shoes.



5. Adorable Tweed Jackets: tweed jackets are more feminine-style this Fall, which makes finding a flattering cut easier.  Pair a bulkier jacket over slim fit jeans or leggings and a thin, light shirt.
