How to Switch up Your Wardrobe to Look Great While Losing Weight
Are you in the process of losing weight? Do you find it hard to find clothes that fit when you are trying to dress for success?
As an image consultant, I am often asked how to maintain style without buying new clothes at every significant stage of weight loss. I have some tips to consider just how to make your wardrobe work for you as you go through your weight loss process. Or consider image consulting services.
Start by checking the Following Basic Wardrobe Items
- Pants- sagging in the rear, try investing in skirts or dresses for this transition period. Skirts & dresses hide assets, camouflage baggy hips and give you a more feminine and flattering appeal to your look.
- Tops- usually, you start losing from the top down which means we tend to lose in the breast area first, then the waist and it goes down from there. How can you make your tops work for you? I suggest you find a good tailor to take a quick nip and tuck. Don’t have a tailor?- I do so give me a call. Invest in a great belt that can pull some fabric in and give you a more defined waistline. Wearing a sweater over a top can hide some excess fabric.
- Maxi dresses- are a great option; they have a flatting look to them. I would caution you to stay away from big floral prints. A solid or small pattern will compliment your figure the best. They are trendy but still in style for the summer. If you haven’t been one to wear dresses in the past, I highly recommend giving it a try.
Shop Consignment Stores but Shop Quality Clothing
When purchasing clothing while in the weight loss phase, shop consignment but shop quality. Quality will make you look great and feel fabulous. Spend less on trends and more on classic pieces that can take you anywhere.
Give yourself permission to have less in your wardrobe by mixing and matching a few great pieces, until you reach your goal weight.
Don’t let the lack of well-fitting clothes get in your way of not losing weight. A few of these tips will help you continue on your weight loss journey. Reward yourself weekly or monthly by treating yourself to a manicure or pedicure. Heck even a great massage will make you feel rejuvenated and worthy of your goal.
Wardrobe tips for Intentional Dressing Weight Loss
Be INTENTIONAL in your wardrobe selection every day. Plan your outfit the night before, it will make a huge difference on how you show up. Don’t forget your accessories, from head to toe.
When you look great you feel fabulous, and when you feel fabulous your self esteem and self confidence builds and you perform at a higher level.
