Winter is arguably the best time of year for us bloated girls. With the drop in temperatures, we’re trading out skimpy sundresses and tight tanks for baggy sweaters and high-waisted leggings…. I think I speak for all of us when I say: FINALLY!
Winter is also the time when bright, summery prints fall out of fashion and chic neutrals become the norm. As a city girl through and through, I feel like I’m in my natural habitat! So, I thought, why not combine the two best parts of winter in one blog post: comfy, bloated wardrobe picks and sophisticated, neutral staples?
Read on for my neutral bloated wardrobe picks — because that’s exactly what I plan to do!
If you’re looking for the perfect LBD for winter, look no further than this BB Dakota dress, available at Modcloth for $85. This silhouette screams cool city chick, while pairing perfectly with a pair of warm fleece tights and black ankle booties for a night out on the town.
Every girl needs the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans to get her through winter. This crop lands perfectly at the ankles, so you can pair them with your favorite pair of waterproof boots on a snowy day. Plus, this $80 cotton-elastane blend from Madewell is just stretchy enough to cover up that post-brunch belly bulge from one too many croissants.
You’ve gotta love a boxy crop when it comes to hiding a bloated belly — and what pairs better with your vintage high-waisted jeans than a boxy-cropped pullover sweater? This edition from Target costs just $20, comes in four pastel colors and features a mock neck that’s both stylish and in season.
It’s impossible to survive winter in city chic without a sleek pair of waterproof boots. This adorable $70 pair from H&M shines out from beneath your favorite bloat-concealing LBD or cropped high-waisted jeans alike, with black patent leather that won’t show salt or scuffs from the snow.
Warm, fuzzy and boxy describes my ideal day — and my ideal sweater. If you agree, then this is the neutral wardrobe staple for you. This button-front cardigan from Urban Outfitters costs less than $50 and pairs perfectly with high-waisted jeans for covering up a bloated belly.
Nasty Gal strikes again with a pair of high-waisted faux leather leggings that offers the sexy vibe of Sandy-esque leather pants without the tight squeeze. Wear your favorite boxy cardigan or sweater with these leggings to soften up this edgy look. Right now, they’re even on sale, meaning this trendy new look could be yours for less than $10. Heck, at that price, why not buy two?!
