With a few tweaks to your wardrobe, you can look slimmer. Absolutely no weight loss required! By Simone Wu
#1 Wear Long Jackets
If you are trying to hide your hips or an ample backside, pick a longer jacket that comes in at the waist and widens below. A blazer that ends at the waist accentuates your backside.
#2 Go Monotone
When you wear matchy colours for your top and bottoms, you create an uninterrupted vertical line, which makes you look taller and slimmer.
#3 Avoid Ankle Straps
Ankle straps on sandals and heels cut off your legs, making them look shorter and fleshier. While you are at it, opt for a tapered, or pointy toe.
#4 Wear Pencils Skirt
Fitted skirts make you look sleek and slim.
#5 Wear V-necks
The upside-down triange V-neckline brings the focal point away from your tummy area and makes you look like you have a slimmer upper section. You can wear V-neck tops or wrap dresses which also make your waist look smaller.
#6 Skip Shiny Materials
Fabrics like satin, or sequin-heavy clothes amplify your body parts, making everything look bigger.
#7 Wear Skin-tone Footwear
Wear skin-tone sandals or heels to add a few inches to your legs, elongating your body, making you look slimmer.
