  • Skinny jeans are only good if you have no hips. If you've got an hourglass or pear-shaped figure they'll just emphasize anything you don't want people looking at. Go for a bootcut jean in a darker wash. Avoid any sort of bleaching or distressing details on thighs and hips. Find shirts with a band around the hips and a looser fit. This way you're fooling everyone. The tighter band should sit right on top of the pants, covering the button and zipper but leaving room to use your back pockets. The looser fit in the rest for the shirt will hide a tummy and bring the eyes straight fro hips to neckline, giving the impression of a small waist. A lower neckline will also give enough skin to make it look like you're not trying to hide anything (you don't need cleavage for this, 2" under your collar bone is comfy for me). Go for longer looser sleeves (no baby tees). Congrats on the new size! :)
