Yes, my dears, this is another area in which fashion is helpful, because with the use of the right kind of clothes, especially cuts and colours, you can easily hide a few pounds. Well, optically, at least. An elongated figure is no myth, however‒with the help of a few handy tricks‒an easily achievable fact. These are helpfull to know, even if your figure is already slim and you perhaps don’t need any special advice for looking slimmer. Here are some tips on how to look perfect, even if you’re not in top shape.
If for no other reason, you definitely need a pair of nude pump, because it’s a necessary evil, just like their black counterparts. Even so, nude pumps’ colour gives them the advantage of elongating your foot, making it seem like the leg keeps going on. It’s best to wear them barefoot, which is totally fine now, but opt for extra thin, completely transparent stockings in the winter.
Seeing as how patterns make us appear smaller, it’s best to opt for monochromatic combinations, which will make you look thinner. Colour blocking is a great choice, which always comes in handy, and so do matchy pieces. I know patterns are popular right now, dots and pineapples and whatnot, but all you need for a more slender look is a single colour: give it a go and you’ll see its magic work in no time.
It elongates the legs, which in turn makes you look slimmer. Remember to always wear pieces that accentuate your waist line, even if you have a couple of extra pounds. This is the part of the body that makes all the difference, so keep it visible. The waist divides the upper and lower parts of the body and makes sure there’s symmetry, so don’t opt for an A-line dress, for instance, because you’ll get lost in it.
Blazer or cardigan
A longer cut and the fact we wear them open makes them elongate our silhouette, so a black blazer or cardigan is necessary equipment even in the summer. It’s a general fact that black narrows you, plus it’s gorgeous in the summer, because it brings out your tan really nicely. Perhaps not the most obvious choice during the day, but play around with it in the evenings all you want.
It complements the neck line and makes you optically taller and slimmer. V-neck is the key to a nicer figure and proportional upper body. You can also opt for basic V-neck tops, you won’t regret it! Keep them monochromatic and slightly tailored, wear them with jeans and high heels, ad an attractive bag and you’re ready for any occasion.
It’s no myth, of course, that black colour narrows us down‒it actually sheds a few pounds off. Take an all-black look, for example (a bit of friendly advice: at least mix materials): it’s perfect to help you look like you’ve lost some weight. Especially pants: black ones will elongate you and make you look fitter. Try a pair of black push up jeans, the effect is amazing!
Very long pants
Definitely style them with high heels, otherwise you’ll probably have some trouble walking. Opt for extra long models, even bell-bottoms, which are trending right now. This model elongates the legs and makes them look skinnier. Finish the look with a Boho blouse for a totally trendy effect, or choose a basic blouse, which shouldn’t be to be too tight.
