Conceal awkward bulges with a belted A-line
We’re not about to give up delicious Christmas cookies and celebratory sips of bubbly, but we don’t want lumps and bumps sapping our night-out confidence either. The fashion fix: an A-line skirt with a waist-whittling belt. “The skirt’s subtle flair skims over lumps and bumps to instantly hide any midsection trouble spots,” says celebrity stylist Eric Himel, who has worked with stars like Ali Larter and
Jenny McCarthy. And adding a thick black belt ups the elegance while cinching the waist and acting as a shaper to flatten the tummy. Finishing the look with a simple white blouse that features subtle neckline details directs the eye up to frame a pretty face while looking classically elegant.
