I don't know about you, but for me the holidays have put on a few extra pounds. And since I stuffed my face with sweets over Valentine's Day I needed a few fashion tricks to hide problem areas. I compiled this outfit for the office.
Hat: Hand-me over from my Sister (similar) // Shirt: New York and Company // Pants: NY&C
Cardigan: Express // Safety Pins: Anywhere // Low-wedge shoes: Marshalls
Be sure to check your job's dress code for their policy on wearing hats at work. However, even if you aren't allowed to wear a hat in the office, you still have to get from your car to indoors right? Just wear the hat outside. I added the hat to add a little pizzazz to the attire. The shirt is a bubble tank top from New York and Company. It does not cling to my stomach, it pulls away which makes it great to hide a little pooch. Since the shirt does pulls away it can make you look wider than you actually are, so adding a fitted cardigan helps balance your shape.

This cardigan comes fitted from Express. It's cinched at the waist to give a hour-glass appearance. The lapels on this cardigan are wavy and there are no buttons. Wearing a flyaway cardigan can be an issue if you don't want it to open up and show your tank top and bra straps, while at work. You can easily fix this with tiny safety pins and pinning the cardigan to the top of the shirt. This will prevent the cardigan from opening up near the straps. 

I also like to have a balance in the clothes that I wear. Since I was wearing a bubble top, I paired it with slim fitting pants.
