Yes, I said it. And even though we would like to think we can avoid the inevitable +5 that has become one of those unwanted holiday gifts that makes its way onto our waistlines (despite regular gym sessions and countless cups of green tea), it’s about as hard to avoid as bath gel at a white elephant party. So instead of dreading it, lets embrace it – and hide it – while we selectively indulge this season. Besides, those pesky lbs will come right off when we juice in January…

Christmas is fast approaching, and while there isn’t an edible centerpiece a la the Thanksgiving bird, you will be surrounded by people you may or may not like (again), with a focus on (surprise, its America) food. There will be fruitcake, glazed ham, gingerbread, and don’t even get me started on eggnog… Fortunately, there will also be a bottle (or 2) of booze to ensure all are happy and bright (at least until the hangover kicks in). The overeating and excessive drinking has become tradition for many, and this year is no exception. Instead of trading real pants for leggings, lets discuss some better ways to hide the holiday lbs:
- Commando tights – a recent discovery that will make even the most whittled waists never turn back. The patented seamless wide waistband doesn’t dig and will change your mind about hosiery forever
- A line or shift dress – the perfect pairing for commando tights, this easy piece flatters every shape. Bring the focus up to your beautiful face with a bold statement necklace or luxe silk scarf
- Dark bootcut denim – leave fading and details for the 20-something’s and stick with the classics. Wear them with a chunky knit sweater layered over a blouse or a chiffon tunic and smart blazer
- While leggings are permitted, please abide by the following rules: 1. spandex is a privilege, not a right; and 2. cover your rear, and even more importantly – your crotch. Ew, I hate that word. But ladies, seriously…
Look beyond basic black, accentuate your best features and start those get-fit resolutions! Juicing January is just around the corner – whose with me?? See you in the produce section, or at the gym!
Stay tuned and stay stylish.
