Hmmm … in the run-up to any festive season or holiday, delicious temptations are lurking everywhere that we find difficult to resist. No wonder there is an urge to conceal the extra grams in your belly, especially during the Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We show the most beautiful holiday looks to hide your belly.

Gingerbread, chapatis, mandazis, nyama choma, mulled wine and co. are simply part of December. But if you’re not careful, the delicious treats will quickly land on your hips. And that before Christmas even hits. That’s why we’ve put together the most beautiful festive clothing for you, which covers your stomach and doesn’t pinch or tweak at Christmas dinner.

Flowing pullovers, oversized blouses and light tunics are the ideal companions to cleverly hide a tummy.

In addition, you can draw attention to your chocolate sides: Do you have long and slender legs? Then tight-fitting trousers – with a comfortable high waist if you wish – or skinny jeans in combination with the wide-cut tops are a perfect choice.

If you like it more playful with your festive attire, then you can of course also choose an elegant midi skirt. Especially as a pleated and A-line skirt, they are currently welcome guests at the long banquet table. Shiny fabrics in metallic gold, silver or delicate rosé distract from your midsection, as does the flattering high-waist cut.

High heels also stretch the leg. You are also welcome to add further eye-catchers to your festive clothing with a statement necklace or an extravagant wristwatch.

2. Layering

As the name suggests, the layering look involves wearing several layers on top of each other. This not only keeps you comfortably warm in the icy temperatures, but also hides the cookie belly.

It is particularly important to combine different lengths and materials with this festive attire. Just like that, it’s a classic layering style.

Thick and coarse wool sweaters or other opaque knit tops are suitable for this in combination with light and also transparent fabrics such as silk blouses or elegant shirts that demonstratively peek out at the bottom of the waistband or at the top of the collar.

Cloth pants, jeans, dresses – the layered look goes with every style and is tailored to your taste. Long scarves and shawls put an additional styling crown on the layered look.

Rough boots or elegant high heels also fit and can form a desired contrast or skilfully harmonize. Anything goes with this holiday attire, even color blocking is allowed.

Why not defy the gray winter days and let a strong purple play together with camel.

3. Dresses with a twist

Ruffles, ruffles and peplums at the waist and neckline skilfully draw the viewer’s gaze away from the middle of the stomach and are both comfortable and elegant for the wearer.

Chic earrings are an accessory that you should not do without. The festive clothing does not need more. The playful elements stand for themselves. Elegant pumps or delicate ballerinas underline the look and make you the highlight of the evening.
