Trim Your Waist Without Ever Stepping Foot in the Gym

Jun 22 2014 - 9:00am

Gym time might yield the flat abs you're after [1], but there's nothing wrong with taking a shortcut. That quick fix comes in the form of Summer's easiest shorts, pants, and skirts that all come with waist-cinching paper-bag drawstrings. And, these high, flattering cuts aren't the only thing we love about them. They make dressing on the fly superchic, from the office to an afternoon BBQ — just remember to tuck in your shirt to give your waistline the spotlight it deserves.
