It’s that time of year. You look in your closet and nothing looks fun or interesting. You’re sick of your wardrobe, your skin needs some vitamin D, and you’re ready to come out of hibernation. But how do you put spring in your fashion step when the weather’s not cooperating? No worries, here are 5 tips for changing up your look in this transitional time between seasons.
1. Show (the illusion of) More Skin
Layer long-sleeved sheer tops over camisoles and add a swing cardigan in a lighter color if you need more warmth.
Choose a lower neckline. Try a scoop neck long-sleeved T-shirt or sweater instead of a crew neck.
Cuff your skinny jeans and wear flats or ankle booties to show off a bare ankle.
Swap out opaque black tights for colored ones or replace tights with nude fishnets or other open-weave, patterned hosiery.
“When I lose the weight, I will look great,” is what everyone says to herself at this time of year. But here’s the truth. People who lose weight don’t automatically know how to dress their new body shape once they get it. In fact, they’ll continue to shop for clothes that worked for the previous shape just out of habit.
I bet you have your weight loss plan in place. What I’d like to help you with is looking great throughout the process. It would be a mistake to neglect your shape while transforming into a new one. You work on your weight loss regime and I’ll coach you through making the most of your current wardrobe and helping you decide when it’s time to shop.
You and millions of other people will be doing the same this January 2014: resolving to make your life better by changing a habit or two or three by making some New Year’s resolutions. They might even come from this list of common goals:
Make more money
Be less impulsive
Count my blessings
Wouldn’t it be grand if we could accomplish all of that? Yes! But chances are we won’t. However, using our fashion eyes we can make a difference in every single item on this list. It could be easier than you think!
