Whether you are getting ready for a special reunion, a warm-weather vacation, or maybe just turning over a new leaf, losing weight can be a very exciting, albeit challenging time. We all feel better when we shed a few unwanted pounds, but along with that comes the challenge of when and how to replace your wardrobe. Obviously, if you are undergoing a major weight loss, you will eventually have to purchase a whole new wardrobe. But how do you transition through all the weight loss without buying a new wardrobe every 10 – 15 pounds?
First of all, buy clothes that will allow you to move buttons over as the weight comes off. Also remember that using a tailor to take in clothes that are now hanging on you can often be a lot less expensive than actually replacing that item. Wear cardigan sweaters instead of fitted jackets that will become too big too soon. Roll up the sleeves of your cardigan to give the effect of a smaller waist. Learn to wear belts around blouses and shirts that might be getting just a bit loose.
While you are losing weight, you want to feel good about yourself. This is so important as it will keep you motivated on those more difficult days. Some tips for always looking your best include wearing one color to flatter your body. This will give the effect of a taller and thinner you. Wear lighter, less bulky fabrics to create a slimmer image as well. To camouflage your mid-section, wear a longer blouse untucked. This will lengthen your torso and give you a slimmer appearance.
Wearing colors that enhance your skin tone and choosing an updated hairstyle to flatter your face shape can also be great ways to improve your look.
