So you've busted your butt all winter to achieve the perfect beach body. You dropped the weight and now it's time to show off the results, but- womp, womp- you have nothing to wear! Over the past few years, my weight has really fluctuated so I have clothing in many different sizes. It's a bittersweet feeling because you're happy with what you've accomplished, but you can no longer wear that perfect pink peplum skirt that was always your favorite. Who else has experienced this?
I like to tuck these "fat" clothes away in the attic 'just in case.' But the truth is, many of these items can still be worn! With a little creativity, and in some cases not so much, you can make something old look new again.
Here's a few tips on How To Wear Your Favorite Clothes After Losing Weight!
The key to wearing your favorite clothing after losing weight is gaining a new perspective. You have to see your clothes differently and come up with new ways to style it!
1- Belt It
A belt can go a long way! Not only is it a stylish accessory, but it's also functionable. Use it to hold your loose clothing in place or add it to an oversized piece for a totally transformed look.
In this photo, I gave this pencil skirt a high-waisted look by adjusting it and holding it in place with my favorite flower sash belt from White House Black Market. This belt was a fantastic investment because it literally goes with everything from an elegant evening dress to a playful summer dress. Plus, it doesn't get more neutral than black!
2- Layer It
Layering can work wonders on baggy clothing! Turning a casual dress into a jumper by layering an oxford top underneath it is the most common way of incorporating this method. Check out how I styled a similar look in my previous post: How To Layer a Little Black Dress.
3- Pin It
If all else fails, try out the old pinning method! Be careful with this route because not all clothing will sit well with a pin. It worked for me today, so it's definitely a possibility to consider!
