Colleen’s Favorite Things – Slimming Holiday Style!
Let’s face it, this time of year most of us find we end up putting on a couple extra pounds. With all of the delicious foods and treats that tempt us at every turn, it’s hard to resist! It usually starts at Thanksgiving (stuffing is my biggest weakness) and continues right through to New Year. The good news is that with the right clothing, you can have your cake (or stuffing) and eat it too!
The new Colleen Lopez Collection is filled with fabulous figure-flattering pieces that will take you from “Work-to-Wow” and have you looking 5 pounds thinner without hitting the gym.
TIP 1: Divide and conquer! Our Colleen Lopez “Dusk ’til Dawn” dress tricks the eye by narrowing your body thanks to the strategic placement of color. The soft rushing and ruffle detail provides instant tummy flattery and the rich colors of magenta, tan and charcoal paired with black will look beautiful with your favorite jewelry pieces. Just add black tights and booties for day or sheer black stockings and pointy toe pumps for evening – Insta-slim!
TIP 2: If you carry weight through your midsection, you’ll want to ban baggy, shapeless tops and boxy sweaters – they only add pounds. Opt instead for our Colleen Lopez “That’s so French” Poncho! The asymmetrical hemline will narrow your hips and thighs while the soft ruffles will hide the tummy area and flatter your upper arms. Pair this gorgeous poncho with dark leggings or jeans and matching boots for a sleek slenderizing effect – Tres Chic!
Tip 3: One of the most versatile and slimming separates for most body types is a pencil skirt. Thanks to renowned designer, Herve Leger, bandage skirts are all the rage! Our new Colleen Lopez Bandage Skirt is like a skirt and shape wear in one – it slims you down while holding you in! Pair this slim skirt with our Mademoiselle Coco Jacket to nip in your waist, or if you’re pear shaped wear a longer blazer or sweater and scarf for casual ease. Depending on the styling, this skirt can go from your desk to the dance floor – catch bandage skirt fever!
Tip 4: When heading out to a holiday party, dinner or open house, there’s nothing more unflattering than a bulky coat. Our new Colleen Lopez Eiffel In Love Trench Coat is sleek, elegant and sophisticted. With dress-maker styling and exquisite tailoring, this coat takes the classic trench to a whole new level of style and glamour! The contrast lace panels create a figure flattering effect and you’ll get so many compliments you won’t want to check your coat when you arrive at your holiday gathering!
Who says we can’t indulge a little over the holidays? You’ll be looking slim and sensational in our new Work-to-Wow collection. Cheers!
