Con­ceal awk­ward bulges with a belted A-line

First For Women - - Style -

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.
