Its ridiculously cold outside right now. And with news that we're set to have the harshest of winters for, wait for it, one hundred years together with the prospect of bingeing on mince pieces and cheeseboards throughout the entire month of December - baring your midriff probably doesnt seem the most obvious of choices - but think again. Stylish stars from Diane Kruger (seen here wearing Spring/Summer 2013 Rochas) to Christina Ricci (wearing Spring 2013 Richard Chai Love) have been showcasing their abs in recent weeks in a very varied selection of outfits. But how do they avoid looking like a High school cheerleader? Will you be keeping your look casual like Miley Cyrus or updating winter's printed PJ's a la Rihanna? And what are the rules?

How To Flash Your Midriff Like Diane Kruger: Shopping Fix

We adore Diane Kruger and basically she could look good in a sack. Fact. But here there is still a lesson to be learnt. Rocking a girly, ladylike style is an easy way to avoid this look moving into trashy territory - the loose short sleeved blouse, the pretty heels - and whats more is the full skirt accentuates the smallest part of her waist. We love!
If baring your midriff both back and front is a little frightening, do as Christina did and choose a dress that only flashes a hint of flesh. This is a great way to give the illusion of a teeny tiny waist.
Update last season's printed PJ's by tying you're shirt in a knot. If this look is too full on, try a high waisted pair of trousers with a retro bra like Rihanna and instead cover-up with a slouchy blazer.
Wearing a cropped tee over a pair of jeans is definitely the trickiest way to work this look. Jeans need to be high waisted and the waistband just the right fit to avoid a muffin top - eek! Miley has been doing intense Pilates classes for the last year and has a wash board tummy - this look is perhaps best left to her.
