How to Look Slimmer Using Fashion: 9 Tips for Every Woman
On Tuesday, April 28, 2015 @ 8:52 pm, Category: Women Trends, 2 Comments
We all know that eating healthy and exercising are the two most effective ways to lose weight; but religiously sticking to a weight-loss routine like that can be a real challenge. Considering the busy lives we lead and the professional and personal life balance we need to maintain, weight loss can easily take a back seat.
That said, your weight loss routine or the lack of it shouldn’t come in the way of you looking fabulous. With just a little know-how on using fashion to complement your body type, you can look slimmer and sexier in 9 Easy Ways!
# 1 - Invest in Shapewear
Good shapewear can make you look like you’ve been eating clean and exercising all your life. Shapewear really works in hiding unflattering bulges and toning problem areas temporarily. If you choose wisely and choose well, you can definitely pull off bodycon dresses, tight skirts and body hugging pants with ease.
# 2 - Wear Pencil Heels with Pointed Toes
Shoes with pencil heels make your legs appear longer and slender, automatically giving you a slimmer appearance. Pointed toe heels immediately draw attention to your feet, also making you look super slender.
# 3 - Stick with One Colour
When you wear one colour from head to toe, no matter what the colour may be, it creates an illusion of a vertical line running down your torso from your head to your toes, naturally making you appear slimmer than you are.
# 4 - Wear Vertical Stripes
Vertical stripes create the illusion of long lines and make you look taller. And when you look taller, you naturally look leaner. So, do experiment with vertical stripes to look fabulously slim.
# 5 - Go All-Black
Using black from head to toe is the longest running trick in the book because it makes you appear like one, long, continuous vertical line. And black is an all time favourite colour that never goes out of style, so why not try it?
# 6 - Pick Dark, Straight-Fit Jeans
If you’ve got a problem waist down, stay away from light coloured jeans. You should be wearing darker blues and blacks with straight fits to give you a flattering body shape.
# 7 - Use Jewellery Strategically
Take attention away from your hips and stomach and let everybody’s eyes catch a glimpse of your lovely jewellery only. Yes, it’s proven true, when you wear eye-catching accessories, it’s only the accessories everybody will be staring at and not the problem areas of your body you’re trying to hide.
# 8 - Wear Skinny Belts
If you’ve got a skinny waist and your upper and lower torso are the problem areas, a skinny, chunky belt can take that problem away. The trick is when you wear a classy, skinny belt, it draws attention to your slender waist, thus taking away the attention from your problem areas.
# 9 - Choose Maxi Skirts & Dresses
A maxi skirt or a maxi dress makes you appear taller, which naturally makes you look leaner. But make sure you choose a well-cut one and not something overly baggy. Maxi skirts and dresses also help you hide problem areas at the bottom, making you feel confident and sexier in your own style.
