How to Play Up Your Assets

I’ve begun updating some of my greatest hits posts so they’re more current. This is one of them!

Assets are relative, ya know? Each woman gets to decide for herself which aspects of her figure she’d like to highlight and play up, regardless of what various magazines may say. And, remarkably, there are some super simple techniques for drawing attention to your bodily assets that work regardless of what those assets may be! If you’d like the observing world to take note of a specific feature, try:


Dressed for: Comfy Cozy

Already Pretty outfit featuring marl sweater, cargo joggers, McQ Puma sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Logan

Sweater – thrifted – similarsustainable
Pants – Hue (no longer available) – similarsustainble
Sneakers – McQ for Puma via eBay – more pairs on eBay
Bag – Rebecca Minkoff Logan via eBay (no longer available) – similarsustainable
Earrings – The Wellington Boot – similar

The last time I owned a pair of high-tops was in high school. They were black Converse All-Stars and they were at least a half-size too big for me, but I wore them until they fell apart. I could’ve sworn I’d shown this McQ/Puma pair on the blog before, but it must’ve been in the newsletter instead. They’re far comfier than the Cons ever were, and a perfect partner to my ancient Hue sweats and best-thrift-purchase-of-the-winter sweater.
