The Secrets to Looking Slimmer

By Aniela / September 12, 2007

Everyone wants to have that slim, beautiful body, but unfortunately it doesn't always happen that way. Weather we don't have time for the gym, or we just basically get lazy, sometimes fitness isn't always at the top of our list (even if we think about it all the time!). So here are some secrets to not being slimmer, but at least looking slimmer!

Wear Monochromatic Colors

Staying away from patterns and an array of different colors is a good idea because you don't draw so much attention to your problem areas. So try wearing no more than two colors at a time.

Stay Away From Baggy Clothes

Baggy clothes don't hide your imperfections, they make them stand out! The best thing you can do is wear clothes that fit you. Not ones that are baggy, but not ones that are too tight either.

Wear Accessories

Again, accessories draw attention from any problem areas. So try stacking up some bangles on your arms, a long pair of necklaces , or just a sparkling brooch.

Wear a Lower Waistline

Choose pants that have lower waistlines. Make sure they have a flat front and no pleats, as that will make you look bigger. The lower waistline helps elongate your legs. Make sure the pants are long enough and they don't cut off at the ankle.

Belt Mania

Wearing belts can give you longer legs, if you know how to wear them. Position it lower on your hips.

You Can Wear Skinny Jeans as Well as Bellbottoms

You can actually still wear skinny jeans as long as you pair them with a voluminous top or a long blazer. Make sure to add some sexy hells. Bellbottoms are best worn with a fitted top.

One thing that I have found also that make people look slimmer is to wear vertical stripped clothing. It even works for me! lol

I have a question- I’m short, and I have really massive thighs which just so happens to be the only thing that’s large… what should I do?
I can’t wear shorts, I can’t wear anything shorter than long pants, and it’s summer and I’m dying… how can I match my clothes to make the impression that I’m actually aware of the seasons?
