Clothes, colors and tips to look slim

Here are some tips from the experts to hide those extra pounds.

ORUse the colors in your favor. Dark colors and especially black create an effect of depth and make us look much thinner than we are. For this reason, whenever you want to look skinnier, opt for black pants, a dress or a shirt. You can play with these clothes to use them in your favor. For example, if what you want to hide are your hips, wear black pants with colored blouses, but if what you want is to hide the rolls of the stomach, wear a black blouse with cuts.

Strong and vibrant colors such as red, fuchsia, yellow and many others attract the attention of all eyes. Take advantage of them. If, for example, you want to avoid people noticing your hips, wear a pashmina in one of these beautiful colors. This way, you will focus people’s attention on your upper body. You should also avoid wearing these types of colors on the widest parts of your body.

Use patterns to your advantage. There are countless patterns on the market and many of them can make or break our idea of ​​a slim appearance, so we will focus on the ones that work to stylize our figure. Stripes, so fashionable this season, will greatly flatter our figure if we use them with caution and in the right direction. For example, if we want to stylize the upper part of our body, we can choose thin vertical stripes. Avoid horizontal stripes in areas of your body that have a lot of volume.

It has been wrongly thought for a long time that large prints are for plus size women, when in fact the smaller the print, the less volume it provides to the figure. Choose prints with small prints and combine them with belts or solid color blocks at the waist, as they will flatter your figure a lot.

The high heels whenever you want to look slim, since these, unlike flat shoes, sneakers and ballerinas, add height to our figure. The taller you look the slimmer you will look. In addition, heels can become a great focus of attention. If you choose brightly colored or well-designed heels, you will draw attention away from those parts of the body that you do not want to highlight.

The heels also have another great virtue, since they make the legs look thicker or thinner. If you have thick legs, choose pointed heels that lengthen the foot and visually slim the leg. If, on the other hand, you want your legs to look thicker, opt for round toe heels.

The necklaces and earrings They are also an excellent complement. If you want to look slimmer in your upper part, avoid too heavy and flashy necklaces, because everything you wear big on your neck and chest will increase the volume of that area. Opt for long chain necklaces with pendants or necklaces with several long strips that exceed the length of the bust.

Believe it or not, earrings can also slim your image. For example, if you have a round face and a short neck, you should avoid oversized earrings. Choose suitable accessories for your type of face and neck and above all look for the balance between necklaces and earrings.

Wear bracelets and watches proportional to your figure and the size of your arms. If you are a large woman, opt for large bracelets that will give proportion to your arm. Never wear bracelets that are too tight or too thin, as both will have a negative visual effect by making your arm look much wider than it really is.

The bags. Without a doubt, bags can also give you or take away volume, becoming an excellent tool to look slim. From now on, you will not only buy a bag because you like it, but because it is the right one.

If your height is average, opt for medium-sized bags with thin straps that do not exceed the length of your waist. In this way, you will guarantee not to lose height or increase volume to your hips. If, on the other hand, you are a tall woman with wide hips and a slim torso, the ideal thing for you will be small rectangular bags or short shoulder bags, since both stylize your figure, focusing attention on the upper part of your body.

And if your body does not have many curves, the ideal way to look slimmer would be to carry a bag with a long strap that reaches the hip, giving it volume.

Maintain a correct posture. No fashion advice, no matter how chic and appropriate it may be, will look good with a wrong posture. If you have a stooped posture, the stomach relaxes and begins to drop. If you improve your posture you will notice the transformation instantly. You will look taller, your stomach will contract and therefore your waist will look smaller, making all the clothes fit you well.

Wear clothes that are your size. When you wear clothes that are too big, the only thing you achieve is to look wider. For this reason, avoid clothes that are not your size and shapeless garments such as large cotton jackets, pants without last and ultimately all unfeminine clothing.

Under no circumstances wear clothes that are too small for you. Avoid shirts whose buttons look like they are going to explode and pants so tight that they show rolls above the hip. The only thing you will achieve if you don’t follow this advice is to look wide and poorly dressed.

Wear the right underwear. Your underwear is just as important as your outerwear. It is vital that you choose the right underwear for your figure. You can use smart bras, with enhancements or reducers, always depending on what you require. It is also very important that they have invisible seams that do not show on your outer garments.

Tights are also key. Do not wear underwear that is marked in the pants or that are very tight and roll out. You must not forget that there are bodysuits and girdles to use daily that will help you show off an ideal figure.

Finally, remember that it’s all about attitude. Eliminate the phrase «I’m fat» from your vocabulary and change it to attitudes and acts that make you look beautiful and radiant. For example, always fix your hair before leaving the house. Groomed hair will highlight your face, put on the right makeup for every occasion, have confidence in yourself and smile. All women are beautiful.
