1. Play up your assets

When dressing ourselves, we tend to focus on downplaying our problem areas rather than up-playing our best assets, which often results in ill-fitting clothing that is isn’t flattering at all! Use clothing to your advantage by accentuating the best parts of your body. Have a small waistline? Whittle your middle with a waist-cinching dress. Love to show off your collar bone? Emphasize it with a beautiful neckline that draws attention to your décolletage. Big boobs? Rock ‘em, I say! A lot of women think wearing loose and flowing shirts will hide their trouble spots, but they actually just make you look heavier. A fitted silhouette can be your BFF even if you’re on the curvier side.

2. Get the size right

Some women are so consumed with wearing a “certain” size that they often wear the wrong size. If you are squeezing into a size 4, but you know it’s a little too tight (or you’re showing off a muffin top), you might want to consider switching to a 6. You will not only be more comfortable, but moreover, the proportions on your body will offer a much more flattering look. Since there is so much fluctuation from brand to brand, it’s best not to get hung up on the number. All the celeb stylists I work with will tell you that size is the number one thing women are doing wrong when getting dressed in the morning!
