Feel stylish (not sluggish).

Post-festive season bloat? Yes, it’s an actual thing. LBH, who doesn’t stuff their faces and drink copious amounts of bubbly over the holiday and then siesta like there’s no tomorrow, post-food coma? Well, we know we do. Because let’s face it, the festive season ‘aint the festive season if you aren’t doing just that.

Most of us feel this bloat-battle coming into the new year and then indulge ourselves into some kind of dry January fad, in an attempt to feel somewhat better about ourselves. Our clothes start feeling a little tighter and coming to work in our PJs doesn’t seem like the worst idea.

Well, fret not, we got you. Here, we’ve rounded up a list of 13 wardrobe *saviours* that will have you feeling fab, post-festive season bloat and all. Scroll down to get shopping.

Hide Your Post-festive Season Bloat with These 9 Wardrobe Saviours:

1 A Pleated Skirt

Create vertical lines with pleats in a waist-cinching leopard print skirt.

2 A Hoodie Dress

Opt for a track styled dress that will make you look and feel stylish (not sluggish).

3 A Kimono

A great way to stay cool as a cucumber and cover up at the same time.

4 Skinny Jeans

Opt for a darker colour like black (in stretch fabric) and pair with a longer length asymmetric blouse.

5 A Loose Fitting Blouse

A loose fitting shirt will make you feel less claustrophobic more ‘I can sit and embrace my rolls without anyone watching’ type thing.

6 A Wrap Dress

Highlight the smallest part of your body with a simple wrap dress. Distract attention from your bloated tum with a quirky print such as polka dots or animal print.

7 High Waisted Trousers (or high waisted anything for that matter)

High waisted, loose fitting and flippin’ flattering. Did we mention the elasticated waistline?

8 A Shirt Dress

A loose fitting dress to conceal the bloat? Yes, please.

9 A Longer Length Boyfriend Blazer

The perfect way to cover up and look super stylish while doing so. Opt for a boyfriend blazer with extra length for a max ‘cover me up’ effect.
