Racing after two children hasn't helped event planner Krista Njapa, 31, lose the 25 pounds she gained following back-to-back pregnancies. Because she doesn't have time to shop, she tends to "squeeze into my too-small clothes or wade around in too-big clothes. I don't look as put-together as I should." Leggings with a wrap blouse and belt
, are great for work.
"Leggings aren't just for weekends, and they always fit,"says Glassman. "Go for thicker stretch fabric with seaming so they look polished, not like pajamas."
The A-line shirt is all about flexibility—worn loose, it's modern and angular; cinched, it shows off Njapa's figure.
