Play With Prints

Hindmarch loves prints, and for good reason: They’re both engaging and camouflaging. Her advice? Start with small patterns-they’re easier to mix into a wardrobe and won’t overwhelm your frame. H&M satin and chiffon dress, $35; hm.com for stores

Coats for Coverage

A step up from the standard cardigan or blazer, a nicely tailored opera coat also offers complete coverage. Look for color blocking, geometric prints, festive fabrics and, for the warmer months, less than full-length sleeves. Adrienne Vittadini cotton coat, $118; Dillard’s, 817-831-5111

Strap Happy

Especially for evening, Hindmarch opts for something strappy and sparkly. Badgley Mischka leather sandals, $169; zappos.com

Neutrals

A pale color scheme is light and feminine when done monochromatically, and the look instantly brightens the face. Hindmarch likes airy layers and a mix of matte and shiny fabrics for a multidimensional look. Chico’s silk coat, $129; 888-855-4986 Isaac Mizrahi New York satin and chiffon dress, $2,800; 212-288-8111
