You know how it goes vixens. We spend countless hours in the gym preparing for summer, only to put on a few unwanted pounds. With a few months left before spring, a fierce ensemble for cold days is still a necessity.
And no, you don’t need to lose weight for the pieces to fit well. In fact, there are a ton of tricks for looking summer ready in February. Throw out your shapewear and Spanx, ladies. These styles will make you look slimmer after a permissive holiday season.
