YOUNGER IN SECONDS

Scarf? Keep It Vertical
A sloppily wrapped oversize scarf with a wide horizontal stripe pulls the eye from side to side, so young Beth looks short and stout. Maria’s smart slimming solution? Leaving ends to hang long draws the eye up and down to “stretch” the silhouette.
Avoid Fussy Details…
Warm layers can be cozy, but Jessica has yet to learn how to make them flatter, too. A bulky poncho with huge buttons, horizontal stripes and diagonal fringe causes the eye to scan all over, adding optical pounds to her frame. And that huge satchel magnifies hips and thighs.
…And Go Ombré
Sharon’s basic fashion instincts are right on the mark. The figure-flattering fit of her poncho skims easily over curves to mask lumps or bumps (if she has any!), thinner fabric keeps the flowier style looking sleek and the subtle gradation of color pulls the eye up and down for long and lean.
Cape? Tailor It
A billowy flared coat overwhelms a tiny frame and erases curves. Instead, take cues from the Big Little Lies star’s superhero style, Olivia: A fitted cape that nips in at the waist highlights an hourglass while sleeve slits break up the baggy arms to slenderize the torso.
