Hurricane Sandy came, she saw, she conquered, and she also added a couple of pounds to the waistlines of those who were fortunate enough to sustain minimal damage from the ferocious storm. 

Yesterday, the New York Times ran a feature titled “Jeans Tight? Blame Sandy” that pointed out the ever obvious: sitting home and eating crap food for a week will cause some weight gain.

We know you’re totally going to get in the gym and work off the Sandy weight gain when you finish volunteering with the clean up of NYC (AHEM!) but until then, check out the 5 pieces of your wardrobe that can help you hide your Sandy 5. 

Cinch that waist!

Your waist is the smallest part of your torso, belting it immediately shows off an hourglass figure and makes you forget that sleeve of Oreos you consumed in the darkness. 


Jeans too tight? No problem, invest in a pair of leggings to hold you down comfortably until you put in that extra work on the elliptical.


Love it or hate it, right now you should thank goodness this trend stuck around, because it is one of the few ways you’re able to wear a tight dress without a little extra baggage hanging around. Plus 5 points if you pair with a nude pump to elongate the legs and make you appear slimmer. 


This dress is a double whammy. Not only is a spicy LBD, but its leather vertical paneling will draw the eye’s attention inwards, making you look slimmer all around- a double whammy to help hide that double cheeseburger. 


The best part about fall is that you can fake it until you make it…to summer that is. Layer on a loose fitting baseball jacket like this Alexander Wang number to keep your look polished and your Sandy guilt hidden.
