Get The Layered Look Without the Fat Suit Side Effect

What: Bobi Tops, around $30

Why: I know the layered look is in. I mean, I'm not living in a hole. I saw its inception years ago in Tokyo, and I've watched it transverse the globe to become the casual-cool style every girl has got to have. But I've also never worn it quite right. Somehow things seem too big or too bulky, and I end up looking ten pounds heavier rather than twenty degrees hipper.  

Then two tops from Bobi arrived at my door. Long and lean, these cotton tops are paper-thin, incredibly comfortable, and let me achieve that funky look without looking fat. I like them over skinny jeans and topped with a cropped cardigan. In fact, I've found the designs so adaptable that I tried adding a longer sleeve under a shorter sleeve to great effect. 

Could I be getting cooler by the day? If only. But at least my friends won't think my online shopping habit is showing in my hips!
