So, I'm not about that gym life. I need to be, but for now, the gym is just not where it's at for this working mom. Until I can get my life together, I've had to learn how to dress this imperfect body of mine. Thankfully, I've found some styles that work wonders for me and can work for most body types as well.
High-waist, full midi skirts are my favorite for occasions that call for timeless, ageless modesty. I find full midis, whether pleated or flowing, to be fun, flirty, effortless and classic. The narrowest part being the waist, it gives a slimming illusion making it perfect for almost any body type. A midi may not be the best choice for someone under 5'3, but a petite fit with some killer heels can be the fix to short girl problems.
For a weekend night out, a loose-fitting dress hitting the knee always does it for me. While the dress works wonders by not clinging to problem areas, a fun jacket can help to give the look shape in all the right places.
Whatever the perceived body imperfection – a generous bust, excess in the midsection, or a large bottom area – a long or over-sized blazer can be the forgiving piece for any corporate look. Yes, ladies, we can wear our fitted dresses and pencil skirts and still feel confident that we've put together an appropriate, fashionable outfit for the office.
If you're like me and haven't quite reached your body goals, avoid the discomfort of extra support layers and invest in styles that make you look and feel confident all on their own.
