I Resolve to Quit Wearing Baggy Clothes and Actually Look Thinner

January 15, 2009 by kristindiva

As a curvy girl and a formerly very large woman, I have literally been hiding in oversized clothes for years. Here’s a tip from me to you and it doesn’t matter if you have lost weight, will never lose weight, or are just a fabulous girl with dangerous curves: big baggy clothes make you look bigger than you are. A defined waist and clothes that fit your body no matter what your size will always make you look thinner and much more put-together. Oversized = sloppy. Period.

My resolution is to throw away all the baggy items and to start wearing clothes that fit. Note that I said “fit,” which is not the same as “tight.” One of the best items in any woman’s wardrobe is a fitted black blazer, which I can throw over pretty much anything. This Free People Black Cotton 3-Button Blazer ($77) is an inexpensive option and look sharp with almost anything.

I am a t-shirt fanatic and I need shirts that fit. I have always been and will always be a fan of The Gap Favorite V-Neck T (on sale for $4). Chesty girls should wear v-neck tops because they're slimming and draw attention away from your waist.

Belts have now become my friend. Buy a belt that fits and it will make you look like a total rock star. This Tory Burch Wooden Square Belt ($105, was $175), can be worn with jeans, over sweaters and dresses, and the cutest look ever: over the black blazer.

Last but not least, I am a denim addict but I cannot rock the boyfriend jean. I’m too voluptuous for that and I look like I rolled out of bed and am heading to Freshman English. My personal favorites for fit right now are my PRVCY Barbados Straight Leg Jeans ($208.) They fit like a dream and give me the illusion of the skinny jean but are way more comfortable.
