4 PRO FASHION STYLE TIPS

# 1 | LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT EXERCISE LOOKS

Monochromatic Outfit from my Holiday Capsule WardrobeWaxed Jeans | Lace Top | Boots | Bag

This seems to be the most popular wardrobe resolution I hear all year long. You can do yourself a favor and discard the dated styles that are more than one size off your current size. Then enjoy the skin you are in and fake it until you make it with these slenderizing style staples.

Wearing one color top to bottom connects, elongates, and instantly slims your body. Black is always slimming but light colors can be too, like this winter white monochromatic capsule wardrobe. It’s all about the connection of your top and bottom which helps even out any disproportional areas.

Nude Shoes

Heels in a shade closest to your natural skin tone are the most slenderizing. If you want to wear flats opt for a pointed toe.

Pendant Necklace

Drop this simple accessory over a high neckline or bulky sweater and watch it transform your silhouette by drawing lines vertically and diagonally across your body. Some popular pendants include the adjustable length two-tone style from David Yurman, crosses, coins, and initials. I just found this Versace pearl pendant on sale.

Wrap styles help hide a belly bulge and narrow your natural waist. A wrap dress is one of the best little black dresses that deliver.

STYLE TIP # 2 | INCORPORATE PRINTS & COLOR

In THIS RECENT POST, I just shared 5 ways you can pick capsule wardrobe colors next time you’re shopping for the pieces from one of my checklists. It helps if you can find a print that you are excited about wearing. It can be a bold print like this cardigan from one of my travel capsule wardrobes or a subtle neutral print like a leopard shoe from my Modern Classic Capsule Wardrobe. See more modern classic capsules like the one below HERE.

STYLE TIP # 3 | LEARN TO LAYER

If you want your outfits to be interesting and always look pulled together the ultimate of all style tips is to layer. Layering adds dimension, texture, and can change your entire silhouette. Everyone should learn to layer, especially if you’re not a big fan of prints. The best layers are blazers, lightweight jackets, and cardigans. I have blog posts dedicated to all three, but here are some of my all-time favorites for you.

Lightweight Jackets

Cardigans
