Look Thinner And Don’t Even Work Out

Posted:

Ladies, do you wish there was a way to slim down really quickly without dieting or exercise?

The trick could be hiding in your closet.

Fashion experts say wearing the right style, fit and color can take off pounds instantly, without dieting, and you don't have to wear head – to – toe black!

Here are some tips:

Choose firm fabrics. Look for cotton with a bit of Spandex, avoid silks, satins and shiny fabrics. Stay away from hefty tweeds and cables.

Watch the neckline. A V–neck and scoop neckline pulls eyes away from a fuller chin while appearing to lengthen your torso. The same is true for wrap dresses, chains and elongated scarves with low knots. Heart–shaped necklines make your shoulders appear wider, which makes your waist look smaller.

As for colors - go rich and dark. Chocolate, wine, eggplant, charcoal, navy and even jewel tones are good picks. Prints and ruffles can help hide bulges. Skip solid pastels and neon shades.

Let lines work for you. Dresses with darker vertical panels at the sides and lighter shades at the center trim your torso and are really ‘in' right now. Skirts and slacks with dark tuxedo stripes on the sides achieve the same effect.

Check your sleeves. Go for tops with sleeves ending at the wrist or three–quarter length. Avoid cap sleeves, which emphasize the plumpest part of the arm, as well as sleeveless and strapless dresses.

Wear the right waistline. Natural waistlines are best for a slender silhouette. An empire waist can hide a rounded tummy, but it can also overemphasize your bust. Drop waists are the worst and least flattering for most figures.

Finally, appreciate yourself. In the end, it's all about attitude. Confidence is the most important way to help you look and feel your best.
