It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 8 or 18, your wardrobe has the power to make you look slimmer in seconds! These slimming fashion tips will make you look a dress size smaller – great if you’ve ditched the diet over the Christmas holiday like most of us!
1. Add a belt
Anything that accentuates your waist will instantly make you look trimmer around the middle. Pop a stylish belt over your favourite dress and watch yourself look a dress size smaller in seconds!
2. Update your flats
We all love our flat shoes, but try to buy flats with a slight block heel. Even just half an inch will make your legs look slimmer!
3. Try simple prints
Whilst bold, oversized prints may seem fun they will make you look bigger than you actually are! Stick to small, dainty prints like festive stars or wear a print on the slimmest part of your body to avoid looking a dress size bigger.
4. Find the right undies
Great underwear is key to looking slimmer. Good quality shapewear is the perfect investment during the party season when it’s easy to over indulge! You’ll have a sleek silhouette in no time!
5. Go oversized
Take a tip from the likes of Victoria Beckham and grab an oversized handbag. Not only will you be able to carry all of your stocking fillers but it will make you look smaller in comparison!
6. Wear a heel
Extra heel height will elongate legs creating the illusion of a longer, slender figure. You’ll feel fantastic in a flash!
7. Wrap it up
A wrap top or dress will instantly enhance curves and take inches away from a big tum. If wrap styles aren’t your thing, then try a style with ruching on one side for the same effect.
8. Get your hemline right?
The wrong hemline will add inches to your figure! When wearing skirts or dresses opt for a hemline about 1 inch above the knees and if you want to make your legs look even slimmer then add a pair of black tights too and knee high boots.
9. Try a clever cover up
Wearing a longline jacket or blazer will smooth a big tum and hide a muffin top. Opt for a style with slim lapels and make sure the hem hits your hips.
10. Optical illusion
Keep an eye out for tops and dresses with illusion panels down the middle – they’ll accentuate your waist and create great hips.
11. Look slimmer stripes
Drop a dress size without hitting the gym thanks to clever stripes. Mismatched or angular directions and a mix of colours work best for a slimmer silhouette. Trust us they really work!
