A little extra weight on your frame doesn’t mean that you have to feel round and tubby every time you venture out of the house for ladies’ night. Simply dress slim and look five to ten pounds thinner! With these fashion tips under your belt, nobody’s ever going to notice your cleverly camouflaged problem areas.
Tired of looking flabby, dowdy and plump? Well, you don’t have to cringe at your pictures the next time your friends upload them on face book! Before you write this article off as just another one of those ‘weight loss, healthy lifestyle, and regular exercise’ pieces, here’s the real deal: use the right fashion tips and you can look 5-10 pounds slimmer without moving a muscle. It’s true, once you learn how to slip these little fashion secrets into your daily get-up you’ll have everyone wondering how you managed to shape up and look fab overnight. While out shopping, adopt ‘I’m going to dress slim’ as your mantra and with that goal in mind, you will be able to choose the right apparel to balance out your body and look absolutely fantastic!
Are you bothered by a chronic case of thunder-thighs? You might be tempted to trade your stunning little black dress for something that covers up your legs, but invest in the right pair of heels and you won’t need to change into anything else! Heels with tapered toes and at least a 2 inch stiletto (the higher the better!) accentuate the narrow curves of your calves, and give your legs a lean, slim appearance to give your look an extra oomph!
Too many women overlook the importance of buying the right underwear. Ladies, the right underwear can make all the difference to your overall look! Make sure that your bra fits well; wearing sizes that are too big will make your breasts sag and add pounds to your upper body. Give body-slimming underwear a shot. Slimming underwear that extends from the torso to the thighs is an excellent way to instantaneously hide unwanted flab.
Slouching like the world’s burden rests on your shoulders will not only ruin your posture and make you look old, but it will also add a good five pounds to your frame. Stand tall, and walk confidently with your shoulders pushed back. You’ll not only feel great and in control of yourself and your surroundings, but you’ll also look great!
Stuffing your legs into skinny jeans just because all the fashionistas seem to be big on this trend will compromise on your look and your self-confidence. Ditch the skin-tight jeans and scout for slightly flared boot leg jeans to give your lower half a lean, tapered look. Dark boot leg jeans that hug you in all the right places will look a lot more flattering on your body than skinny jeans that leave you feeling embarrassed about your heavy lower half.
Choose the right fabric to artfully disguise the extra weight without having to suck your stomach in every time your crush walks by! Textured fabrics, tops and dresses with pleats or other details cleverly camouflage the pockets of fat that would be oh-so-visible if you opted for clothes made of plain, un-textured fabrics. Your clothes should always be body skimming. Clothes that are too bulky, too baggy or too tight will accentuate all the problem areas instead of disguising them.
Just like the right hairstyle can work magic on your face, the wrong hairstyle can all too well accentuate that stubborn double chin and those chubby cheeks. For someone with a round, full face, bob cuts and blunt bangs are an absolute no-no! Both hairstyles will make your face look smaller and fatter, which is definitely not something you want. Opt for long layers that add volume to your hair and frame your face to give an overall soft, slimming visual effect.
