How to style away your Christmas Paunch

If you have over indulged over christmas like i have then you will be finding that jeans are a little bit snugger, tops feel a little bit shorter and your face feels a little bit plumper...

Well i have a plan to disguise these side affects until the workout, detox and diet really start to take affect!

First stop for me is always fashion.. so my jeans are feeling snug and for fear of exposing even the slightest muffin top i am embracing chunky knits and layering..

The fitted t-shirt and the tight fit jeans elongate the limbs and give the appearance of slim underneath while the chunky knit cardigan looks fabulously comfy and stylish but disguises my tummy. (T-shirt H&M. Jeans Lowfly, Cardigan Reiss)

As my new jumper dresses are looking a little bit lumpy and bumpy i am embracing volume and higher waists as opposed to my usual fitted and tailored options. (dress from topshop boutique, belt Reiss, T-shirt H&M, boots Dune)

As for the face i have 2 trusty tricks
The first is red lips and the brighter the better. I find that when you have bright red lips that is all people seem to notice so it draws attention away from the bags under your eyes and your fuller cheeks. I also find that when I am wearing uber red lips i pout a little bit more which accentuates my cheekbones and exagerates my jaw line, my favourite lip colour is russian red by mac.

My second trick is hair... volume volume volume, get creative with your backcombing and your hairspray and create messy buns, plaits and ponytails as this draws people focus and diguises limp lack lustre hair!

I would love to hear if anyone else has any fab post christmas indulgence tips!
