We’ve all had those winter “What do I wear?” moments. … Colder weather means thick sweaters, lots of layers, and puffy jackets that, well, pretty much make you look like a marshmallow. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Adam Glassman, creative director of O, The Oprah Magazine, says that following a few tips can make you look leaner while still keeping warm.
“People end up looking like an Oompa Loompa,” Adam says. When selecting coats, he recommends looking for puffers with vertical seaming and says it’s important to find a coat that’s not too short. “You really want something that’s mid-thigh or to the knee and very streamlined,” he says.
When it comes to choosing your daily dress, Adam says, “you have to start from the inside out,” because the correct bra can make you look 10 pounds thinner. “You have to go for a bra fitting — 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong-size bra,” he says.

For winter-appropriate tops that slim, Adam recommends looking for warmer shirts and sweaters with lower necklines. “I would say a V-neck or a scoop-neck,” he explains. “It will elongate your neck, and light will go to your face. And if you find a square-neck, your waist will look much smaller.”
And if you’ve ever wondered about which shoes to wear with your tights, Adam says they should always be the same color. “If you’re wearing tights, match your tights to your shoe,” he says. It will make your legs appear much longer.
Adam also says you don’t need to wear stilettos to appear thinner. If you’re on the curvier side, he recommends “a stacked heel, one that’s a little bit thicker because it helps balance out your hips.”
