I was just reading through my March InStyle Magazine last night, and came across a good tip that I thought was worth sharing. In her new book, "How to Never Look Fat Again," author Charla Krupp gives the following advice about denim:
"Pick simple, unadorned denim. Clean, streamlined jeans are the way to go. The most flattering styles are dark and feature unembellished pockets. Avoid extra details that catch the eye and give the illusion of bulk – think twice about tags, grommets, or decorative extras. The leanest silhouettes of all: boot cut and straight leg" (InStyle, March 2010, p. 248).
