What To Wear On A Fat Day (No Spanx Necessary)

Everyone has their days when they wake up and feel like a whale. Your first inclination might be to wear the loosest, baggiest thing in your closet, but don’t. Looking  skinny on a fat day means you should add structure and play sneaky tricks with proportions that will make you look long and lean. Here are the five pieces you need to survive a fat day:

A light weight blazer like this Madewell Garcon Blazer ($135) will add structure to any flowy summer dress. The thin lapels don’t add any extra volume to the chest, and the single button brings all the attention to the center of the torso, making your waist look smaller.

This Steven by Steve Madden Woven Belt ($38) will add shape to a looser dress or blouse, and it will make you look slimmer. We suggest sticking to something as wide as this belt so it can help tuck in the tummy.

A collared shirt like this Cynthia Steffe “Jack” Button-Down Blouse ($93.75, down from $125) has special details that make you look leaner. The seam at the waist adds definition, the shirts length will help hide a too full tummy, and you can roll the sleeves up or down when you would prefer to hide your arms, and if you want to make your legs look longer, tuck the shirt into high waist skirt or pants.

A pair of wide leg trousers work on all figures and make your legs look miles long. These Nanette Lepore ‘Washed Away’ Linen Pants ($298) have a high waist that flattens your tummy, loose linen fabric that glides over your legs, and a  roomy leg opening that covers your shoes. Don’t pair these pants with loose top, it will add on pounds, instead go with something structured and cut close to the body.

If you can’t be bothered with separates, this J. Crew Silk chiffon Sophia dress ($165) is a no-fail dress that will visually take of the pounds. The defined waist and a-line shape will flatter all figures. Chiffon fabric is light weight and won’t cling to your body sins.
