Ever heard of that term ‘Suffer for Style’ well if you’ve ever worn a pair of skinny jeans or platform heels, you’ve most likely experienced this first hand. Now wonder a world where you can rock your stretchy pants and still be stylish. It can be done and here’s how:
1) Start with your Stretchy:
You can find cheap stretchy tanks and leggings but they’ll feel like just that. They’ll roll up on your hips or pinch your midsection. Wear out after a month. OR Hard Tail makes an affordable but quality product that wears and wears, wash after wash. Lays on your body flat so you’re not creating more bumps than you already naturally have. You’ll put their leggings and an easy Niki Biki tank on for the day and want to continue to wear them to bed they’re so comfortable. TIP: Always wear colors next to your face that flatter!
Start to layer. This Hard Tail slouchy long sleeve tee will camouflage your midsection if that’s desired. TIP: Most body types can wear a slouchy loose top if you pair it with leggings. If you’re top heavy then pairing the outfit with a boot will create visual balance.
If you need some cozy warmth then layer a cozy warm sweater like this on from Left on Houston. TIP: If your sweater is loose and baggy it should still have shape to it to be flattering. The dropped sides to this sweater is what gives it shape, making it cozy cute and flattering.
But if layering seems too hard, have your clothes do it for you! This Subtle Luxury Reversible Layers Sweater has the layer sewn in for you. You don’t even have to think about it. TIP: What makes this work is the sweater and layer is long enough that it covers your back side but the shirt bottom goes up on the sides so it creates shape and flatters. This look is best for straight body types be them petite or full figured. And you can wear this sweater two ways…love that!
Or just keep it simple and throw a sweatshirt on…but not just any sweatshirt…oh no…TIP: You are what you wear so if you wear a boring sweatshirt, you’re going to look…what? Yup, boring. So choose stylishly. This ecoSkin Tunic sweatshirt hugs all the right places but is nice a loose in others making it interesting AND flattering and THAT’S what you want to be right!?
I’m not going to let you go without one last TIP: If you choose to wear an ankle bootie (VERY on trend this season) with your leggings leave a little break between your legging and your bootie to keep your look modern. Any boot taller than your ankle you don’t have to follow this tip.
