During the holiday season, your schedule is jam-packed with attending parties and gatherings. Getting dressed for occasion is fun, but it can be tricky if you’ve been overindulging in seasonal comfort foods like turkey and sugar cookies. Because of this, slipping into your favorite dress seems nearly impossible. Instead of skipping out on the party altogether, use clever wardrobe and styling tricks as the solution. Metallic clothing, in particular, is eye-catching and it creates a slimmer silhouette in seconds. This way you can mingle with friends or family and take group photos with confidence. Start with these three metallic styling options that are perfect party-ready looks!
Subtracts 10 Pounds
The body-hugging fit of a streamlined, longer dress that nips in at the waist creates a slimming column effect and highlights the figure’s beautiful hourglass shape.
Carves Out Curves
A shiny, printed blazer pulls the eye from side to side, adding visual bulk to the entire body. Instead, the linear look of a one-tone topper directs focus vertically to shed optical pounds all over. Bonus: Wearing with matching pants “trims” even more.
Looks Long and Lean
A long skirt that’s fitted through the hips and thighs and flares out at the knee creates the illusion of a short and stocky frame. The fix? An A-line design “stretches” the body for a more statuesque-looking silhouette.
