The last thing you want to worry about when trying to lose weight is if your favorite clothing will fit. It can be so frustrating stepping on the scale and seeing that the needle is pointed at five points higher than last week. Then worrying if those skinny jeans you were planning to wear will fit you today. You don’t even want to look at the sweatpants that you threw over in a corner, because then you will accept defeat. In the case of fashion, defeat is never an option.
In reality, no one will care that you gained a few pounds. If the clothes you pick out fit and are appropriate for the occasion, you can possibly get away with weight gain. But the key to dressing while you are in between sizes is to dress for the body that you currently have. This means, do not try to squeeze your size seven behind into a size five pair of skinny jeans. It will be obvious to those around you that you have gained some pounds and are trying to desperately save your wardrobe.
Instead go shopping for the most used items in your wardrobe that no longer fits quite right. Pick up a new pair of skinny jeans in a size you are now comfortable wearing. Buy a looser fitting t-shirt so that you can have room for that extra belly fat. Whatever your eyes wander to, make sure that the item will be used often.
