Look Better Instantly With These 4 Tips

Dress for success, and soon you'll start to feel better, too!

By Denise Austin, creator of

Have you ever heard the expression “Fake it ’til you make it”? It’s great advice to follow if you aren’t feeling confident: When you're not feeling your best, try to look as though you are. Dress in a great outfit, take time with your hair and makeup, or pay attention to good grooming — or all three. Look your best and soon your insides will catch up with your outsides. It’s true — you'll be on your way to a happier and more confident you! emoticon

Dressing with confidence can take years off your looks, regardless of your size. And the time to start dressing that way is right now, not when you reach your goal weight! Try these tips on how to dress to impress:

Get fit. Think baggy, loose-fitting clothes hide the extra pounds? Wrong — they actually bulk up your frame! Don’t be afraid to wear clothing that skims your curves (just don’t go skin tight!) emoticon

Pick color. The key to getting a “Wow!” out of an outfit is color. Choose the right hue for you and you’ll hear “That looks great on you!” every time. Talk about a confidence booster!
Accessorize. What’s in your jewelry box? It doesn't have to be expensive, but it should have style. Remember, accessories can make (and sometimes break) an outfit. So choose your jewelry — and shoes and bag — as carefully as you do your clothes. Including those special pieces in an outfit can really make you feel great! emoticon

Finish the look. The details finish the look: A flattering haircut, clean nails, well-cared-for skin, and tasteful makeup all send the message that you’ve got it together. Don’t skip these small but important details!
Go on, fake it until you make it! Put your best foot forward emoticon— you’re so worth it!

I still have some of my favorite episodes on the DVR, and a few from this season that I haven't watched yet.

    I can add one: Stand up straight and tall ... even if you are only 4' 11"

    So true. I think the best diet advice is to buy clothes that flatter and fit.
