HOW TO LOOK SKINNY IN CLOTHES
Hi everyone so today I'm going to share a few of my tips and tricks to looking skinner in your clothes. Now I'm using the word skinny very loosely because what I'm really talking about is using fashion to give the illusion of a longer, leaner figure – regardless of your size or shape. Now if you don't want to look longer and leaner without losing weight then that's totally fine – I am not here to judge. I just want to share some of my tried-and-tested style tips to getting a more stream-lined sillouhette.
1. Monochrome makes it easy.
Firstly, the easiest trick of them all is to dress in a monochromatic way. Now what this means is wearing an entire outfit in different shades and texures in same colour. Dressing like this creates a cohesive outfit and the illusion of a more stream-lined figure. Tops and bottoms of the same colour create an uninterrupted vertical line, making you look thinner and taller.
2. All black is all right.
This leads us on to the second tip and that is to wear all black. All black outfits are the most slimming of them all. If you want to avoid it looking boring opt for pieces with texture and accessorise with jewellery, sunglasses, shoes and a cool handbag to add interest.
3. Mask problem areas with dark colors and highlight assets with bright colors
If you don't want to wear all black, just try masking your problem areas with black or a darker shade. Not thrilled with your legs but love your upper body? Mask 'em with a well-fitting pair of black pants or a skirt, and add a bright-colored blouse.
Remember darker colours will draw the eye away on lighter colours will attract the eye so try and wear your darker colours on the parts of your body you'd like to minimise.
5. Show some skin up top
Exposing a little skin up with a v-neckline is also a great way to draw the eye to your shoulders and away from your middle. The more skin displayed between your chin and chest (within reason!) the more streamlined your proportions will appear. V-necks are great for visually balancing broader hips and thighs.
6. Accessorise like a boss
Long necklaces and scarves are a great way to draw the eye down the body and create the illusion of length. So consider your accessories when dressing.
7. Pick your patterns
Wearing patterns is a great way to disguise any figure flaws. Patterns trick the eye and your eye isn't drawn to any particular place – instead you just look at the entire pattern so it's a great way to minimize areas you don't want emphasized.
8. Don't discount maxi skirts
A maxi skirt is an instant leg-lengthener and waist slimmer. It's a myth that curvy girls can't wear long skirts. In fact, a well-cut maxi skirt can actually give you the appearance of looking longer and leaner. Choose solid versions that skim the length of your body, which will create a long vertical line (forego anything with pleats, bulky pockets, thick elastic waistbands or too many layers). Be sure to keep your top fitted though so you don't drown in fabric.
Also, make sure the skirt's hemline is as long as you can go without tripping.
9. Choose jackets wisely
A great jacket will really take you places but the length of it is really important. If your jacket finishes at the widest part of your body it will highlight this area. So for me I never wear jackets that fall on my hip or my upper thigh as it's like placing a neon sign there saying look here. If I fall in love with a jacket that falls at the wrong places then I wear a longer layer underneath it to detract the eye.
