Did you have a good Thanksgiving? I did ... a little too good. And you know what that means...."fat" clothes.
We all have them ... maybe the morning after a big celebration dinner, maybe at That Time of The Month, or maybe you're just feeling blue and want to get away with feeling as if you're in your PJs. Sweats and yoga pants are an option for stay at home days, but if you have to go to a job, or just don't want to broadcast your "fat day" to the world, you need some real clothes,
I'm a big fan of a short knit dress with leggings. I have a few dresses that work fine on their own in summer and are great paired with a cardigan, leggings and boots for a winter look. Hides my thigh issues, looks stylish, and there's no tight waistband making me cranky. Just remember, leggings are not pants. if you look at your top and think "I would wear pants with this if I weren't wearing leggings" then don't wear leggings, wear pants.
If you have to get a little more dressed-up, stretch twill dress pants are awesome. They look polished, but won't dig in to your waist or cling to your thighs. You can even find some with hidden elastic in the sides if you're really feeling bloated. Add a dressy blouse or camisole and a cardi or jacket, and you don't have to panic if a client calls and wants to see you right then.
What's your go-to "fat day" outfit?
