Winter Wear That Helps You Look Fit

Even though most winter wear is designed to keep you warm, not all coats and clothing are as equally figure-flattering. So if you still want to keep warm, while looking and feeling good in the process, here are some winter wear options that are designed to make you look a bit more "fit!"

Winter Wear That Helps You Look Fit


Even though most winter wear is designed to keep you warm, not all coats and clothing are as equally figure-flattering. Feeling and looking good can increase and boost your confidence levels, even during those cooler months when putting on that so-called "winter weight" is at risk. But finding the right winter wear to flatter your silhouette can be even more difficult if you are trying to lose weight. So if you still want to keep warm, while looking and feeling good in the process, here are some winter wear options that are designed to make you look a bit more "fit!"

How to Look Good in Winter Clothes

Warm Up with A Pea Coat
Not only are pea coats a great purchase to keep you warm in the winter months, but are very figure-flattering and timeless. Rather than baggy ponchos, a well-suited pea can make you look about five to 10 pounds slimmer. Pea coats can fit not only your shape, but your personality, as they come in a variety of colors and can be easily accessorized. And if you want to make your gray or brown pea coat stand out, add a large chunky belt around the center, or pair it with a patterned, colorful scarf!

Back in Black
Black is one of those notorious colors that make you "skinny" and offers a slimming effect. Though wearing black can certainly be flattering, reduce the the risk of a gloomy feel by incorporating a pop of color with jewelry, a belt, or blouse.

Or at Least Other Dark Colors
Similar to the effects of black, dark colors also tend to look slimming and flattering. Opt for a deep plum, chocolate brown, and other rich and dark pieces, along with a casual pair of dark boot leg jeans to illustrate a long and lean appearance.

Fit to Size
Rather than trying to squeeze into a smaller size, select clothing you actually fit in. Too tight fitting clothing can magnify any securities while too loose can essentially "add" on extra pounds by just putting on a slouchy top.

Lengthen the Body
Draw attention to the length of the body rather by utilizing vertical pieces. Rather than horizontal necklines, V-necks shirts, sweaters, and cardigans are all pieces that elongate the the torso. Vertical pinstripes and zippers all prompt the eye to look up and down rather than side-to-side, ultimately illuminating a slimming effect. Trenches are great; they can elongate your body, and make your waist look smaller.

Accentuate Your Slimmer Areas
Take the attention off problem areas by accentuate your slimmer areas. Wear the tightest piece or portion of clothing around your slimmest area and define your waist with a skinny belt. Slim-fitting undergarments can also provide a slimming effect, particularly on the stomach, thighs, chest, and arms.

Boast On Your Positive Features
But looking good is much more than accentuate slimmer areas, as you should boast on your positive features. Have strong legs? Highlight them by raising your skirt's hemline a few inches. Or what about sculpted arms and shoulders? Look for a V-neck to showcase your toned upper body.

Dress to Impress
Layering with comfortable clothes during the cool winter months increases the risk of. So rather than throwing on a pair of sweats and sweatshirt, take an extra 20 minutes to dress to impress. Doing so may lead to more productivity, energy, and motivation throughout the winter.

Wear Heels
Want legs for days? Walk fiercely in heels (height based on comfort level) to not only look slimmer in jeans, but magnify and radiate your confidence!
