Style Tips from Yummie Tummie

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Struggling to fight off the winter blues and extra holiday pounds?? I know I am.

Celebrity Stylist and Yummie Tummie Creator, Heather Thomson, offers must-have slimming secrets to look great in 2010!

Go long for versatility and style.
With cold winter days here, we can all benefit from a few extra inches of fabric. The look is chic, flattering, and keeps you warm. The long Yummie Tummie tank is perfect for adding a new dimension to your wardrobe without adding unwanted bulk. Let your favorite long Yummie Tummie tank peek out from under a fitted shirt or funky fur vest paired with skinny jeans for sleek, long lines that will have you looking slim, confident and cozy all winter long.

Sky high heels lengthen and slim.
One of my favorite tricks for hiding unwanted pounds is throwing on a pair of high heels. They are great for lengthening your silhouette and perfecting your posture so you stand up straighter and taller. Try a pair of over-the-knee boots or classic pumps for a slimming update to any outfit. And while designer styles are delicious, you don’t need to break the bank for a new pair of shoes. Check-out brands like Steven Madden or Aldo for the season’s hottest trends at affordable prices.

Feminine and flirty add lux to your look.
Embrace being a lady with feminine ruffles and bows this season. You will be surprised at what a little girly glamour can do for your confidence. Try a 40’s inspired suit with a belted jacket and pencil skirt in wonderful wools and tweeds. Pair it with a darling ruffled blouse which will take you through the season and even into spring. My must have tip for pulling off this look with confidence- the Yummie Tummie Briefie which slims your belly and gives you an hour-glass shape to show off your ladylike style.

Wrap it up for effortless style.
Classy wrap coats and dresses are perfect for carving your waist for an effortlessly sexy style. Invest in this look and you are sure to wear it to death. No need to worry about a few extra lumps and bumps leftover from the holiday season either. The Yummie Tummie Peek-A-Boo Cami will perfectly smooth away unsightly belly bulge while highlighting your best assets.

Statement jewelry for instant glam.
Chunky necklaces, stacked bracelets and embellished rings are a must-have for adding a little flare to your style this season. Layered jewelry is the perfect accent to everything from pencil skirts to boyfriend jeans. An added bonus, it will draw the attention away from trouble spots leftover from the holiday party season. Check-out trendy boutiques for unique pieces and the best bargains.

Give your wardrobe an affordable facelift.
You don’t need to spend a ton of money for an updated look in the New Year. My approach to fashion is to take the latest trends and mix a little bit new with a little of what you’ve already got. Simply invest in a great, versatile, go-to piece for the season such as a strong shoulder boyfriend blazer. Wear it over a girly top and skirt, sexy dress or black leggings when heading out on the town. Or throw it over your favorite Yummie Tummie Tank, a tissue soft cotton t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans for a casual layered look perfect for winter weekends.

Skip New Year’s Resolutions, get a Yummie January boost instead.
New Year’s resolutions are a lot of pressure, especially when you’re already working as hard as you can. Instead, start the year fresh by giving yourself a break and a boost at the same time: get a Yummie Tummie. Yummie Tummie gives you the freedom to be your best self in everyday outfits, from layering a Long Sleeved Body V under a cardigan, to dressing up jeans for girls-night out with the jeweled neckline Glamour Tank. Whichever fabulous style you choose, it will leave you looking terrific and give you a rush of feel-good energy- just what you need to get moving on a New Year’s project, whether it’s a workout routine or weekly bubble bath.
