Style Hacks To Disguise The Muffin Top This Holiday Season!

You are what you eat. As much as we like the comparison to a warm, fluffy muffin it’s not the most flattering body type. Curvy on top, narrow on the bottom: the belly bulges caused by sweet holiday indulgences are lovingly called a muffin top. No, this doesn’t make us fat, but when in the mood for body-fitting clothes, they can be a disappointment. Don’t worry, this article won’t tell you to stop eating extra cheese pizza (may we recommend Food That Can Help Break Down Belly Fat though?) instead give you not one but 8 different style hacks that’ll help you hide that belly fat.   

1. High-Waisted Jeans

1 belly fat - Light Blue Denim High Waist Jeans

The higher you go on the waist, the more shapely your jeans will fit. Tuck in a tee-shirt and pull it out a little to give that chic, boxy effect. And while you’re at it, go for a bootcut hem. It’ll not only make you look slimmer but also taller! Make sure to buy the right size (thank God for ‘Odd’ sizes) so the high-rise doesn’t suffocate you.

POPxo recommends: Light Blue Denim High Waist Jeans (Rs 1,399) by Stalk Buy Love for comfort 24x7.

2. Peplum Top

Who says you can’t wear crop tops! Just go for a peplum hemline and viola! Peplum gives a slimming effect without hiding your curves. It’ll allow you some breathing room without compromising on style.

POPxo Recommends: Lace Faux Leather Peplum Top (Rs 949) by Stalk Buy Love to rock the party season.

3. Pencil Skirts

3 belly fat - High Waist Wrap Peplum Skirt

Pencil skirts are a wardrobe must-have in our opinion, muffin top or not. The slim-fitting skirt with a straight, narrow cut suits all body types and shapes. Tailored for a close fit, they’re a great pick for work as well! Pair with a loose top to balance out the proportions.

POPxo Recommends: High Waist Wrap Peplum Skirt (Rs 1,499) by Koovs will be just perfect for work (and after-work!)

4. Pleated Pants

4 belly fat - Rust Regular Fit Solid Parallel Trousers

Gathered waistline and pleated falls on trousers are a great buy for people with a muffin top. They’re usually high-waisted giving you a taller impression and the pleats take attention away from the belly. Knotted belts are an added bonus.

POPxo Recommends: Rust Regular Fit Solid Parallel Trousers (Rs 1,329) by Mast & Harbour are one of our favourites, especially for the colour.

5. Kurtas With Flared Hemlines

5 belly fat - Blue Printed Anarkali Kurta

Make anarkalis and flared hemlines your best friend for all the wedding functions, and parties that call for an Indian touch. Not just that, they’re an elegant choice for work too. Don’t forget your pumps to go with it.

POPxo Recommends: Blue Printed Anarkali Kurta (Rs 629) by Libas for the Monday blues.

6. Wrap Dresses

6 belly fat - Metallic Knots Satin Mini Skater Dress

Wrap dresses will give you the freedom to decide the fit of your outfit. Cinch it around your waist to give your dress the ‘fit and flare’ effect. Who needs a corset when you are your own boss!

POPxo Recommends: Metallic Knots Satin Mini Skater Dress (Rs 1,699) by Stalk Buy Love for the NYE party you’ve been waiting for.

7. Tunics To The Rescue

7 belly fat -

Not too short, not too long, tunics are age-less and so universal. This yellow coloured button-down tunic will brighten up your #OOTD as well as your day. Pair it with parallel trousers to work or with distressed jeans for a casual outing.

POPxo Recommends: Yellow A-Line Kurti (Rs 959) by Rangriti will look good on everyone.

8. A Good Bodyshaper

8 belly fat -

It’s okay to rely on tummy tuckers once in a while for a carefree day throughout. They’re an easy (and comfortable) option to wear underneath your bodycon dresses and low-rise bottoms. You can forget about accidental belly show.

POPxo Recommends: Seamless Shaping Short Shapewear (Rs 999) by Jockey

Let muffins be where they deserve to be - on this quirky baking cup mould - and later in your tummy.
