While there’s no article of clothing or fashion strategy that will literally take weight off your body, the clothes you wear and how you wear them can make you look 10 pounds lighter in seconds.
Slimming Style Tips
Wear a V-neck
It lengthens your neck and shows off your collarbone.
Keep it monochrome
The easiest slim trick of all is to dress in one colour from head to toe. It portrays your body as one clean line and it doesn’t break up your body into separate segments visually. It also makes you look taller. So if you’re on the petite side, this is just right for you
Buy only what you can move in
A huge misconception is to think tight clothes will make you look slim. If anything, it does just the exact opposite. Stuffing yourself into clothes that don’t fit will cause rolls and bulges on even the slimmest of women. If you have trouble getting it on while trying it on and have to wiggle your body into it, please don’t buy it.
Practise the art of camouflage
First thing to know about the rule of colours is darker colors will minimize and lighter or shiny ones will highlight. So if you have a thicker waist that you wanna downplay, wear a brown or black belt. If you want to play down a large double-D chest, avoid wearing a gold or silver blouse.
Don’t go baggy
Big shapes make you look bigger. I’m telling you, this is true. “Wear clothes that fit just right, loose enough to prove you’re a lady, but tight enough to prove you’re a woman.
Tailor your clothes
You can’t expect every size 8 to fit every size 8 woman. Get a tailor you love and trust to fit your nicer clothes to your body. I know this might seem like extra cost, but once you have a few beautifully tailored staples in your wardrobe, you’ll be prepared for any event.
Go small with prints
The smaller the pattern, the smaller you look.
Every single stylist will tell you to draw attention to your waist. This is because it accentuates the smallest part of a woman. Tossing a belt on or over anything will help give your body a slimmer profile.
Go same on same
Pair any coloured pant with the same colour shoe for longer-looking legs. This also works with nude shoes if you’re wearing a dress.
Invest in the perfect pushup
A perfect pushup bra gives you the result of a boob job in seconds without the surgery. It is a gamechanger. And the higher your boobs sit, the slimmer your waist looks.
Note: All these are temporary solutions to create a slim appearance. Reality stares you in the face once you take off your clothes. If you want to rid yourself of the extra inches permanently, you’d have to embrace a healthier lifestyle and exercise.
