Audra: If Beyonce and JayLo both love how it makes them look , now better style expert Jenn Falik shows us how you can look sleek and chic and still keep warm this winter, in today’s savvy shopper. Jenn: I’m here with Heather Thomson, a celebrity stylist and the founder of Yummy Tummy shape wear. She’s going to give us some tips on how to dress ourselves slim this season. Heather, thank you so much. Heather: Oh, you’re welcome Jenn it’s great to see you. Jenn: Great to see you too, and I think these are tips that we all can use. We’re all motivated to get in shape, to have great things for yourself this year. But, I think the first step is that instant gratification. Heather: Right. Jenn: So with layering, its winter, you wouldn’t want to look bulky. What are your tips for layering so that you can still have a nice slim silhouette? Heather: Well, it’s all about what you start with. And I’m pleased and proud to say Yummy Tummy’s a great layering piece to start with because it takes away the added bulk. It’s one piece that’s actually shape wear and ready to wear mixed together, so it’s a great hybrid. So you don’t need that added layer like your shape wear then your tank top, then your sweater. People wear too much bulk when they’re layering. I think that’s one of the things they do wrong. You want to elongate your line when you’re layering and you want to make yourself look slim and slender while you’re doing it. So Yummy Tummy, with its three-panel concept, smooths you, takes you in at the waist, but doesn’t have that added bulk Jenn: And the idea that, shape wear that can be seen, and I know, that’s something that you created, Heather: Yeah. Jenn: And, what innovations have you seen in shape wear recently that really bring it into something women can wear every day? It’s not about the old school girl anymore, right? Heather: Exactly, I think that’s really the innovation for shape wear. Yummy Tummy was the first to say, “Show it off”. You know, use a product that’s going to be versatile, that’s going to be a solution to modern women today. Where you don’t have to hide it, and conceal it. And it’s like a dirty little secret, or like your grandma’s girdle like you say. Yummy Tummy is the pioneer and the innovator of show it off shape wear and a hybrid between shapes wear and ready to wear. Jenn: And I know that you have worked with some amazing celebrities. You worked with Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez and all these great people who always looked so amazing. Are there some other tips that celebrities use maybe to look slim and beautiful on the red carpet and off the red carpet? Heather: Let’s see, there’s a, a nude shoe is a great tip that Beyonce uses a lot to elongate her leg. You can use a nude shoe on a bare leg and it really gives you nice long legs using patent leather with nude. It’s a nice way to pop it up or excite it. So that’s one of our little Hollywood tips. Jenn: Okay, that’s a good one. Anything else? What about big shoulder trend. I’m doing it today, I feel like there is a good optical illusion situation there. What’s your take on these big shoulder? Heather: Well, big shoulders kind of fake good posture so to speak and they also draw your eye to the upper part of the body and form that V at the waist. so if you use a nice structured shoulder, Jennifer does that a lot also. If you use a nice structured shoulder it’ll actually give you that V kind of optical illusion to your waist and it keeps your eyes up around your face and your neck and your shoulders. Jenn: It’s all about the little things. Heather: Yeah. Jenn: The little insider tips, and Heather is full of them and her line, Yummy Tummy, has some of the greatest pieces out there for shaping your body. Something you can wear in the gym, you can wear it under those big shouldered blazers, I live in them every day. The perfect way to layer yourself slim. Heather: Yeah, the essential styling tool and layer absolutely. Jenn: With the weather that we’re having this winter, the more layers you put on the better.
