We all know that eating right and working out is the real way to be in love with ‘the shape of you.’ However, what do you do when you have to look thinner for that glam party tonight? Turns out dressing right can make a world of difference and help you look much slimmer and fitter. ‘Countershading’ is something all the stylists are going for and it’s all about choosing the right colors and fabrics to suit your body type. Take a look at these style tips to look instantly thinner.
Fashion Tips to Look Skinny
These simple fashion tips will leave you looking fitter immediately.
Shapewear doesn’t necessarily need to be the most dreaded part of your outfit. Go for shapes which will help give your body a more streamlined look. If you want to give a tummy tuck then go for shapewear which lifts and hides your belly fat. It holds your body firm, hiding fat in all the right places.
It's All About the Length
Stay away from your holiday capri pants, pleated skirts and baggy shorts. Instead go for a knee-length pencil skirt for a flattering silhouette. For an extra skinny look, opt for straight fit, dark wash jeans that go up to your ankles. Pair your skirts with heels to elongate the legs.
The Penguin Look
It’s all about shading when it comes to using fashion to look slimmer. Choose dark shades. Whether it’s your tops, jeans or skirts, go for black, navy blues, wine reds and greys. Pair blue and black for the perfect evening look. Dress in columns of color and take a cue from colorblocking to slim your shape. What is colorblocking, you ask? It is a trend that uses complementary color combinations for an interesting look.
Most stylists these days are recommending a slight tan on your legs, arms, shoulders and neck to make you look instantaneously thinner. Apply a slightly shimmery bronzer on your cheeks, forehead and nose to give your face lines some uplifting.
How to Dress to Look Slim and Tall
Heels can be a slightly painful affair to wear through the day. They do, however, pay off big time in helping you look slimmer and taller all at once. The best part is, they go with almost all types of outfits. They even transform a casual look to a sleek dressy one. You don’t necessarily need to go with stilettos to streamline your look. A nice kitten heel, solid pumps and wedges are more comfortable options to wear through the day and will give you the lift you are looking for.
