The 6 Pieces That Are Disarmingly Flattering, From a Stylist
Building the perfect wardrobe is about finding the pieces that make you feel best, whether it's about the way they fit, or simply how they make you feel when you put them on. But, that being said, style may be personal, but there are certain items that can add a little something to every woman's wardrobe. Not to get all Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but there are pieces of clothing that no matter who may be wearing them, just work.
We tapped celebrity stylist Cher Coulter to share a few of her go-to pieces that anyone and everyone can keep in rotation. These staples may be simple, but Cher notes that they flatter all body types. From a sleek blazer to throw on over your everyday look, to off-duty staples, these styles are the ones to keep in heavy rotation.
Read on to see Coulter's six picks of the ridiculously flattering pieces every woman should own, and then shop each style.
"A tailored single-breasted black blazer is flattering on everyone because it creates good angles from the shoulder down. The stiffness of the fabric and a nipped-in waist creates a [slimming] illusion," Coulter says.
"Black workout leggings from Lululemon seem to be magic because, for some reason, they hide bulges. They go up and over your high waist, sucking in the stomach area," Coulter says.
#3: Waist-Accentuating Dress
"A dress with a seam at the waist but is flat over hips is flattering, as it will soften the curves and not accentuate them," Coulter says.
#4: High-Waisted Black Jeans
"High-waisted black jeans with a skinny leg are super flattering and make your legs look skinnier," Coulter says.
#5: Long-Sleeve Dress
"A long sleeve on a dress is always flattering, as it elongates," Coulter says.
#6: V-Neck Tee
"A V-neck tee is flattering because it shows off some of your décolleté, giving an illusion of a longer neck area," Coulter says.
