If you’re an average girl, like myself, then I’m guessing that right now you’re trying to get rid of the winter weight as you make your way into summer, the ever popular social season here in South Africa.  This is usually when those invitations come rolling in: weddings, cocktail parties, year end functions etc. and we’re faced with that dreadful question: “What to wear?”.

Fortunately for us, ladies, the more comfortable/loose fit is trending at the moment and we can use it to our advantage.  Anything from stylish kimonos to beautiful flowy wrap dresses which makes covering that extra winter weight a lot easier.  Investing in such pieces is definitely a great idea!  Non-stretch fabrics such as satin, chiffon and even tulle are great options if you’re focusing on giving those unwanted curves less emphasis.  I chose to wear this beautiful floral dress to a friend’s wedding ceremony as it fits less snug around my problem areas (hips and lower belly aka “muffin top” lol) and shifts emphasis toward my middle and neckline creating the illusion of an hourglass body shape.  Remember – with the right outfit you can easily draw the attention to your more flattering areas while you work on getting back into shape.
