Lauryn Evarts, the lifestyle blogger behind The Skinny Confidential, offers up her expert style know-how on wardrobe essentials guaranteed to wow.
You don’t have to show skin to flaunt it
Don’t feel like you have to show actual skin to flaunt your abs – all you have to do is hint at the shape of your body. A simple option is a pair of skinny jeans paired with a classic white button up shirt tucked into the front to show off a flat stomach and a small waist.
Make the most of your middle
Anything that’s tight around the waistline works. Think high-waisted skirts and denim, or a dress with a cinched waist. They’re subtle ways to draw the eye to your figure without revealing too much flesh.
You can even switch it up by wearing high-rise skinny jeans, a sleeveless blazer and a crop top – it’s quirky and shows some skin without being too over the top.
Officewear that shows how hard you’ve been working out
Jumpsuits are a fun way to mix things up in your wardrobe. They’re comfortable and the cut really makes the most of your toned torso. Dress-wise, an over-the-knee (midi) dress with a tie waist creates a classic silhouette – great for drawing attention to all the right places.
The crop top 101
Don’t let the crop top be the center of attention in your outfit. Go with basic colors such as white, black and nude, and play things up by adding a beautiful piece of jewelry. If you’re dressing down, team your crop top with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans – it’s a look that’s both cute and comfortable.
A crop top isn’t just for your chill time: it can look professional and chic when worn with a skirt or a pair of trousers with a high waist.
Day-to-night dressing: from the desk to the dance floor
Look for clothes that are classy, chic and show off your new physique. Something like a floral blouse, jeans and nude pumps hit the professional but smart brief. Or if you want to go for a dressier ensemble wear a snug, but not clingy, black dress with a cool silhouette, like a high-low hem (mullet dress) or lace detail.
Come the evening, accessorize your look with a piece of statement jewelry, and finish the look off with killer heels and a slick of bright lipstick.
