10 Fashionable Ways To Look Slimmer
10 ways to look slimmer instantly
Sometimes all it takes is a small change in the way we wear everyday pieces to look instantly slimmer. Follow These 10 Tips On Ways To Look Thinner In Your Clothes, Instantly!
Use the new shapewear
If the thought of constricting girdles from years past have kept you from trying the new shapewear, you'll be amazed at how far body slimmers have come. You can wear camisole shapers under knits and Spanx for a super sleek line under dresses and pants.
Buy the right bra
If everything isn't exactly, um, where it used to be, the quickest way to get that slim torso back is to lift everything back into place. The right way to do this is by choosing the perfect bra for your body. If you've never been fitted for a bra before, it can be a little awkward but well worth it to get the right bra. You need a bra wardrobe - exercise, casual, t-shirt, strapless, etc. - so that you can have something for every outfit.
Dress in monochromatic colours head-to-toe
You may know that head-to-toe black is slimming, but did you know that head-to-toe anything will give you a slimmer look than chopping it up in blocks of colour? Even head-to-toe white can be slimming.
Opt for constructed pieces instead of loose knits
I don't know where the myth began that long, loose knit layers were flattering, but they are tremendously unflattering to overweight women. Instead, opt for pants that hang straight from the hip (no fuller, no skinnier), jackets with some construction and shirts with some tailoring. The overall effect should be to skim your body - never tight - but still much more flattering than flimsy knits.
Wear dark colours on your largest areas
Big bottom? Wear black pants or dark jeans with a print top. Top heavy? Wear a black jacket with light pants. You get the idea. Camouflage your heaviest part with a dark item to make it recede, and bring your slimmer section into focus by wearing a bright or print.
The taller you are, the slimmer you'll look. So add a few inches to legs with heels. If you have heavy legs, make sure you pick a substantial-looking heel. Wedges are more comfortable, trendy and even work for women with curvy calves.
Opt for back pockets on your pants, jeans-style
The worst thing you can do for a broad backside is to go pocketless. Back pockets - the flat, jean-style patch ones - break up the expanse of the bottom and make you look smaller.
Wear jewellery close to your face
Bring all the attention to your face with earrings and/or a necklace. Long, layered chains can give the entire body a longer, leaner line.
Choose the right prints
The wrong print is anything that makes you look wider: polka dots, thick horizontal lines or widely spaced florals. The right prints give you visual height - like pinstripes - or provide camouflage (like florals that are the medium-to-large size and are tightly spaced together to show very little background.)
Use makeup to make your face look thinner
Double chins are especially prominent as we age. Find a powder one shade or so darker than your skin tone. Use upward sweeping strokes to apply it under your chin to help that area recede. You can also use a bronzing powder (applied with a very light hand, and with only touching the ends - not brushing) along cheekbones and on the temples.
