Happy Thursday, friends! Today, I would like to re-visit how I dress to slim my style.
I thought about this during the Kohls visit, when I called attention to the legging waistband on the WOMEN’S SIMPLY VERA VERA WANG HIGH RISE FAUX LEATHER MOTO LEGGINGS.
Yes, I have lost a some weight and hope to lose more, but I still prefer to dress to slim my style when I am going out and about.
I do not always get it right, but I do my best to follow my own advice.
I have a couple of videos to share with you today that I believe are helpful.
So, for those of you looking for some tips on how to dress to slim your looks, I have much for you to consider today.
HOW I DRESS TO SLIM MY STYLE – WHERE I START
I have become much better about keeping how to dress to slim at the top of my mind when I shop.
I shared with you this summer the story of this little kimono. It was brought out to the floor of a clearance sale (sadly one of my favorite local shops closed).
There was a long version and a short version of the kimono…and fortunately I was shopping with a friend since no dressing room existed.
I tried them both on for her and she quickly said…if you are going to dress to slim…go with the short one…much more flattering.
She was right…and I love to wear it over my espresso colored Eileen Fisher tank.
Many of you know I have had a love of long kimonos and toppers for years…but I do believe I was often hiding and seeking ways to feel confident.
Sometimes we just need to try on the different lengths at the same time to see the stark difference.
During pandemic years, I tried to get back into making videos for you. I haven’t continued because I must have help to do it, and haven’t had that help to keep it going.
But if you haven’t seen my video on 7 TIPS TO LOOK SLIMMER THAN YOU ARE, then it is worth your time. I discuss all the tips I have learned in order to dress slim.
I think this is one of the most helpful videos I have ever made.
My new Eileen Fisher outfit from Nordstrom followed these rules in the video in order for me to dress to slim.
I am still overweight, and desire to dress to slim for confidence and comfort.
I so look forward to wearing this outfit more when the weather cools down. I feel very confident wearing it.
When I find an outfit that is magic and helps me dress to slim, I know I will wear it more often and the cost per wear will be lower.
Another video you may enjoy is the most recent one from Trinny London. Her current season includes helping this woman, EMMA.
Now, you may be interested to know that EILEEN FISHER FALL is out on their website. I know many of you love the brand as I do.
However, many of these styles need you to practice the dress to slim tips I mentioned in the video.
I have seen several jackets and shirts for fall that have huge pockets on either side of the front. Be careful of that design…it will add the appearance of weight to your chest and overall style.
When I try on EF pieces at Dillard’s or Nordstrom, I size down in order to dress to slim and always use that three way mirror….(I talk about it in the video).
As we begin to shop for fall and winter, I hope re-visiting the tips of how to dress to slim is helpful.
Of course, offer any advice you may have in addition to what I included in the video.
I bet some of you have your own dress to slim techniques…so please share if different from what I offer in the video. Then make sure on this lovely Thursday that you…..
