To slim your tummy, Charla suggests a one-two punch: compression and diversion.

-- Buy a pair of high-waisted, supercontrolling shaper shorts, such as Spanx Hide and Sleek Hi-Rise panty.

-- Go for jackets with feminine details to draw the eye upward. The best silhouette is fitted at the shoulders and bust and hits at the top of the hip.

-- Opt for monochromatic dresses. Styles like a simple sheath or an A-line with no natural break in the center can whittle your waist.
