Button Advice: To Close or Not to Close

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Very often you may think that if you can’t close the buttons of your jacket or cardigan, you automatically think it doesn’t fit and so you don’t wear it.

You’re wrong, and I’m telling you that with love.

Note: Going forward, I refer to those as toppers.

Take a look at these two photos of me in my fitted blue topper and see the hourglass shape it gives me when open, which makes me look thinner.

If I chose to only wear it when closed… it looks like I’ve gained weight, had breast enlargement surgery,  and am unable to close it. ?

Tip: When your topper is loose-fitting, try buttoning one or two buttons in the middle to give you a more defined waistline.

Watch the video where I talk about the above outfit, and how it’s possible to use fewer clothes to make more outfits than you already have without having to buy anything new.
