    A belted coat, like this silky trench, is ideal for defining the smallest part of the waist and then flaring out over the lower stomach.

    The pleated wrap detail and high-waisted band on this skirt work double-time to conceal your mid-section.

    Hobbs Sarah Jacket ($242) in Pastel Blue

    When selecting a jacket or blazer, look for a longer cut to skim over your middle, rather than a cropped silhouette, which will end at your widest point.

    When in doubt, a flowy wrap top will never fail you.

  • 13 of 14

    Hudson Elle Mid Rise Baby Boot Cut Jeans ($132) in Stepping Stone

    Your denim sweet spot lies in the mid-rise cut. (Opt for a low-rise cut and you’ll get the dreaded muffin top, and a high-waisted option may invite a lower-stomach bulge.)
