25. Are there any dressing tricks you’ve invented or learned that make you feel like you’re getting away with something?

When getting dressed up feels overwhelming or I'm not feeling body confident, I throw on an all-black outfit that fits the occasion and an interesting pair of shoes.

No. I am pretty conservative overall.

Nothing comes to mind at the moment

A bold lip will make most things disappear, so don't have to spend too much time on eyeshadow. My curly hair lets me get away with minimal effort on my hair.

i wear coffee drinks sayings that are nice.

No :(


I learned not to show my wrinkles. In winter I look much younger then in summer:)

I always make a point of wearing excellent lingerie any day I have a big meeting or presentation.

All my clothes go together and I can get dressed in two minutes flat

Black pants are my go to piece
Makes it easy to dress in a pinch

matching something light with something dark. It's amazing how that helps. Also getting rid of everything that is the correct size but doesn't flatter -- it doesn't fit you now, it wont later.

being able to distinguish good material from bad in a store.

it's okay to wear the same exact thing most days.

wearing all black.

Chunky scarves with anything...! It's become my thing.

Not really.

Being small-busted, any bra that gives me a bit more shape and volume.

I have a bunch of shoes, maybe 30 pairs, that I never wear. Which isn't a trick, it's an issue. I'm working on it.

French tuck

Yes a lot

An oversized black top with excessively long sleeves is a rad visual trick. I'm not small by any means, but I appear small in an oversized black hoodie.

I've been wearing brandless oversized hoodies and expensive athletic shorts with a 2-inch inseam for years. An XL or XXL hoodie completely obscures the pants, and the resulting look is a jarring amount of pale white leg.

Last year, Ariana Grande wore that outfit in public with her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson. Now, it's all the rage among college-aged women and also quite controversial. Someone on Twitter described the outfit as "shitwalking" and that's the kind of description you just don't forget.
