Love yourself at every size and dress your ‘now’ body

By Traci McBride

Don’t wait to lose weight before updating your wardrobe. I often hear people tell me that when they lose weight they invest in their wardrobe. I’m suggesting you instead dress your best each and every day to keep your energy and goals more focused. Use these tips to trick the eye and play-up your best assets.

Soon we will be wearing less clothing and leaving the bulky sweaters in the back of the closet. Leave the oversized all black wardrobe behind as it adds more weight than you might you think.

Here are some visual tips for men and women.


Look your best now and 10 or 20 pounds from now by focusing the attention where you want it and using clothes as the tools they are. Harness the power of your wardrobe.


Still struggling to make sense of your wardrobe? Are your closet and drawers full, yet you are paralyzed on how to make sense of what to pass along vs. what to keep or tailor?

Stop the madness and create a step by step plan. Rarely should anyone pitch everything and begin from scratch. Always begin with a “closet detox” – never at the stores. Take action now for a streamlined and effortless daily routine that puts your best self into the world every day.
