As the summer approaches, we seem to be wearing less and less clothes and that means one thing: body consciousness! All those months of scarfing down delicious Holiday food has made us all a little bloated and unhappy with ourselves, but thankfully, you don’t have to hide under baggy clothes to feel good about yourself. Of course I encourage everyone to eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis, but also to pick the right clothing for their body types. So here are 7 slimming looks for your every problem area.
If You Have Wide Hips
There is absolutely nothing wrong with hips: they’re feminine, sexy, and everyone has them! But if you’re a little self conscious, I suggest you go for a pair of fitted flare leg jeans. These type of denim balances by creating a triangle with your hips as the high point.
If You’re Short
If you want to add a little height, straight-leg boyfriend jeans do just that. They create the allusion of a longer, slimmer leg, especially when paired with a pair of sexy heels or wedges.
If You Have a Tummy Bulge
And who doesn’t, right? Pick tops that are a little looser at the front and that drape off your shoulders. This will hide your tummy perfectly. Also, ruffled tops are perfect since they draw attention to the neckline and away from the mid-section.
If You Don’t Have a Waist
If your waist needs a little nip, there’s nothing better than a wide belt to fix that. Wear it on your waist over a flowy summer dress to add structure and a tiny waist.
If You Want to Emphasize Your Bust
Strappy maxi dresses are the perfect type of dresses to enhance your bust, but they also add a very nice slimming effect overall. Choose a maxi dress with sequins around the bust area to draw attention upwards.
If You Want to Look Slimmer
If you want to make the appearance of an overall slimmer look, V-stripped patterns are perfect for that, like the skirt in the above picture. They draw the attention down towards the body, making you appear slimmer and taller too!
If You’re Heavier on Top
Don’t be afraid to wear blazers…they can actually make you look 10 pounds lighter! Throw a fitted blazer over a pair of boyfriend jeans and see the difference a structured jacket can make!
