Wear black 1
You probably already know that black has a slimming effect. But did you know that the neutral color also helps to erase the years? There’s a reason why the little black dress is a fashion-must have. Everyone should have a couple of these hanging in their closet. I love the metallic belt on this classic LBD. It instantly cinches at the waist.
Try new fashion trends 2
Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you can't enjoy some of the new trends the fashion world has to offer. Choose a style that works for your age and your body type. I love the black and white contrast trend that we’ve been seeing so much of this season. This black and white colorblock nips at the waist and flattens the tummy area, complementing all figures.
Get rid of those mommy jeans 3
There’s really no reason to own a pair of mommy jeans. This old fashion style may be nice and roomy, but the loose fit and high-waist creates the illusion of a flat, elongated behind. Consider a pair of mid-rise boot leg jeans in a dark wash instead. These universally flattering jeans hide bulges, tucks in the tummy, and balances curves.
Throw on a belt 5
Belts are such a great way to cinch dresses, jackets and cardigans. But stop wearing it the old fashion way with those leather workhorse belts that hit right at the natural waist. Instead try a super thin or thick dark belt like this, that will not only make your waist appear smaller, but will go with most of your outfits.
Stop with the baggy workout clothes 6
Ladies, there’s a time for sweat pants and fleece jackets, and it’s when you’re at the gym! With all the chic and comfortable options available now, there’s really no excuse to be walking out of the house looking like you’re about to paint your porch. Throw on a cute and comfy knitted sweater dress like this over a pair of black leggings for a look that’s relaxed but still fashionable.
Don't do matchy-matchy accessories 7
The only person I know that still matches her purse with her shoes is my 84 year-old abuela. Matchy-matchy accessories is a thing of the 90s. If you’re going to rock a pair of red pumps like these PLEASE don’t match them with a red clutch. Instead try a neutral colored one or experiment with some color-blocking.
