With a rousing “we’re all in this together” attitude, Leah Feldon proves that a well-chosen wardrobe can render any figure fabulous. “All we have to do,” writes Feldon, “is choose the right clothes—clothes that camouflage any real or imagined figure flaws rather than highlighting them—and learn how to do it with ultimate style and confidence.” Take five pounds off your look with a new hemline; disguise a bit of bulge with a cleverly designed blouse; highlight your best assets with the perfect accessories. The key to “camouflage chic” is dressing to suit your body type, comfort level, and lifestyle—all while maximizing your own personal flair.
Instead of spending another moment agonizing in front of the closet, you’ll learn how to:
* distinguish between “yes” and “no” colors
* lose the tummy without the tuck
* perk up your basic black
* create optical illusions for a long, lean look
* conquer the dreaded bathing-suit challenge
* follow timeless tenets of good taste
Packed with empowering, easy-to-implement tips, fun illustrations, and celebrity style secrets, Does This Make Me Look Fat? provides all the information you’ll need to create a slimmer, more stylish, and better-proportioned look (and to help your man do it, too!).
