One of the biggest concerns women have is how they look in a piece of clothing. If they don’t feel confident about their bodies, even the trendiest and most beautiful piece of wear cannot be appreciated. Here is a small, but useful guide for those women who would like to master the art of visually slimming their bodies with the right pieces of clothing.
Sheath Dresses: One of the most slimming styles of dresses, the perfect sheath dress is knee long and in a dark colour. The dress should be well-fitted, ideally with a V-neckline. Pick a matte fabric which easily disguises figure flaws.
Pencil Skirts: Many women avoid pencil skirts, afraid that they will only look bigger, but it’s just the opposite. A well-fitted pencil skirt up to the knee makes the legs appear slimmer and longer.
V-Neck Tops: The V-neck beautifully opens up the neckline and elongates the torso and the neck. However, just a V-neck isn’t enough – pick a top style that works well for your figure overall.
Tailored Jacket: Get a single-breasted jacket that’s tailored for you and you will achieve a perfect fit. Bulky fabrics and loose fits can never create that attractive, slimming figure you long for. A well-fitted jacket can also hide certain areas you’re not much proud of.
Straight-Leg Jeans: There are literally hundreds of styles, washes and colours of denim nowadays, but if you really want a slimming style, pick straight-leg jeans in a dark colour (black, dark blue or indigo). The best style is one with plain pockets and containing some Lycra.
Flat-Front Pants: If you want to look slimmer you need to get rid of your pants that have elastic waist. Choose pants that fall straight from your hips, in a dark colour and with no bunching around the stomach or thighs.
Sleek High Heels: The sleek high-heeled pump is the most slimming style and also perfect for petite women. The ideal colours include black, navy and aubergine.
Black Tights: If you don’t own black opaque tights, it’s time to get a pair or two. They make the legs appear much slimmer and look really stylish with black pumps or court shoes. Black tights are equally appropriate with skirts, shorts and dresses.
