Has this winter wonderland got you wondering what the heck you’re going to wear? From seasonal soirees with friends and family to office functions, for curvy fashionistas the stakes are raised as the temperature drops. Many of us struggle to look long and lean under the layers that keep us toasty. With the hectic holidays in full swing, we’re going to save you a step and point out a few great ways to shape up and warm up at the same time!
Shaping Denim: Designer denim is a look that will carry you though many kinds of occasions. Now this style is smarter than ever. Whether you prefer the extra slimming of a line like Ann Michelle or the booty boosting design of the Verox line, there’s a shaping denim that’s perfect for you. Keeping you slim and trim, these items are perfect when dressed up with a tailored jacket or paired with something more relaxed like a t-shirt and festive printed scarf.
Fashion Tights: Tights, both sheer and opaque, are one of the blockbuster trends of the season. And with chilly winds closing in, the time couldn’t be better to add a sheer, shaping layer to the leg. Whether you wear a solid opaque color or make a statement in patterns or sheers, we love the resurgence of hosiery. Wear them under a dress or as a fun way to keep your shorts in season all year long. The best thing about this trend is that you wear it your way!
Leggings: The fashion options for leggings have exploded this season. No longer restricted to the basic black stretch model, ultra warm corduroys and knits in a range of colors are keeping our legs extra happy in winter’s winds. One of the best things about leggings is that you can wear them with any kind of shoe, or more importantly…boot. And last but not least, leggings also work underneath another layer like pants or a skirt, adding warmth when we need it most.
All Over Shapers: With all the extra layers you’ll be wearing, why not add one that takes a few inches off. The right all over body shaper can help defend you from the elements and keep you trim when it’s time to trim the tree! Check out the shapers in our Weight Loss category for inspiration. These high compression garments are ideal, as they work by increasing thermal actvity.
You don’t have to give up fashion in the season of giving. With the slimming solutions above, you’re sure to beat the chill and outshine the brightest lights of the holidays.
