You know these fat days... when just nothing seems to fit... and you know what, you can look two dress sizes bigger just by wearing the wrong clothes. But the good news is that when you choose the right fabrics and designs, you can shrink overnight!
Here are my favourite tips and tricks how to appear slimmer instantly:
Always wear fitted clothes on the largest part of your body. Loose and baggy clothes will only make you look bigger.
|It's a no no!|
Wearing the same colour or tone of colour top and bottom will make you appear taller and slimmer.
|Looking tall and lean|
|Not a good look!|
Wear darker colours on the biggest part of you body. That doesn't need to be black, try colours such as navy blue, dark grey, brown or charcoal black. The
darker the colour, the more light it absorbs and the slimmer you will appear.
Use accessories to divert attention away from your not so flattering bits towards your best features. If you have great legs show them off. If you have a great bust line show that off.
Always try to create a waist, regardless your body shape. This is easily done by wearing fitted jackets, tops or belts. Wearing well tailored clothes
will generally sculpt your body into shape.
Necklines can also make a huge difference. Avoid high necklines if you are big busted, and opt for more wide scoop neck and deep V-Line.
Wrap dresses and wrap blouses are also very slimming.
Avoid shinny, stiff, or bulky fabrics. Slimming Fabrics are silks, lightweight flannels, jersey, linen and cottons. Knits need to be flat kits, jersey, double knits, anything that doesn’t hug the body too tightly.
To elongate your legs, wear flesh toned or nude pumps that matches your skin tone of your legs. If its cold outside, wear tights in the same colour as your shoes. Also opt for pointy shoes, as this will help elongate your legs. Avoid chunky shoes and flats,and try always to wear heels. Even few inches extra can do wonders for your shape, making you look taller and slimmer.
