If you are about to do a wardrobe update, you want to put your best foot forward and get the best look possible.
Like most people, you might have piled on some ‘Covid weight,’ making you look and feel a little heavier than usual.
Well, while you wait to hit the gym and get back to looking and feeling like yourself again, creative shopping can do you some good.
Here are expert tips on choosing clothes to give you that svelte, slimmed-down look.
Grab Some Slimming Pants
Good quality slimming pants do precisely what the name suggests: they help tuck and cinch you perfectly in the right places to create a slim silhouette.
Get good, well-fitting slimming pants and pair them up with stylish blouses and tops to achieve a formal or casual look depending on the day’s activities.
Not only will these help you look slimmer, but you will also be comfortable, and your confidence will be through the roof. What else could a girl want?
Anything that lengthens or creates the illusion of longer legs ultimately makes you look slimmer.
Having said that, think about pairing your favourite looks with a nice pair of heels or wedges.
You can also wear your pants two inches higher than your waist to seemingly lengthen your legs.
Wear All Black
Wearing one colour head to toe is just about the easiest trick in the book- and arguably the most effective one as well.
The working of this trick is simple. Wearing an all-black ensemble helps create an uninterrupted vertical line.
Aside from black, other solid colours like deep green, dark grey, and navy work just as well. Keep the look clean and tailored and whatever you do, stay away from pale colours.
Invest in Good Innerwear
The most expensive clothes will look dreadful paired with the wrong inner-wear. Wearing a sloppy bra will create unsightly bulges in your upper body. Constrictive underwear, on the other hand, will enhance that muffin top.
Investing in good quality, well-fitting undergarments ensures that they hold you in all the right places.
Shapewear can also tame all the rowdy fat around your midriff and help smoothen down your silhouette. This gives your clothes a better fit.
Wear Fitting Clothes
A common mistake people make is to try to conceal their bodies with baggy clothing. This works in the opposite.
Baggy and loose-fitting clothes only add volume and make you look bulkier.
Instead, identify good styles in a fitting size and let your inner confidence shine through.
Creativity Is Key
To look tinier, all you need to do is understand these basic rules and then add your twist and personal style.
With these simple tips, you can flaunt the illusion of a tinier you while you work hard to reach your ideal body size.
