How to Dress to Look Slimmer

Body Slimming Fashions You can dress to look slimmer by choosing the right styles and colors in your clothing. One can easily look ten to twenty pounds lighter if you know the secrets to looking slimmer in the fashions you choose.

There are certain patterns in women's clothing that will never make you look slimmer, especially horizontal stripes. Even the slimmest person will look unbalanced in outfits with horizontal patterns and stripes. If you prefer clothing with patterns and stripes, make sure they run vertically. Vertical lines will give the body a taller and slimmer appearance. The illusion your clothing offers is key to looking thinner. Also, avoid clothing with large patterns. For some strange reason clothing designers create plus size fashions with large patterns. These patterns are usually large flower blossoms and geometric shapes. They often look cheap and tasteless. Even if you wear plus size clothing, never opt for these unflattering fashions. If you like flowers and geometric shapes, look for clothing with smaller designs. Large gaudy patterns just make you look ridiculous.

Darker Colors Will Make You Look Thinner

When dressing to look slimmer, choose darker colors. They are naturally more slimming. Shop for outfits in darker shades. They hide unwanted bumps and bulges, and darker shades usually make the wearer look considerably thinner than lighter colored clothing would. Wear dark colors with vertical patterns and stripes and you will be amazed at how slim you appear.

Never wear clothing that is extra large or very roomy. You might think youíre covering up extra weight, but only look like youíre hiding under yards of material. Most people donít look as overweight as they think they do. Buy well-fitting clothing and youíll actually look smaller. Just donít wear clothing so tight that you look melted and poured in. Wearing clothes that are too tight is not attractive either, if you are carrying a few extra pounds. This will only showcase your problem areas.

If you carry extra weight in the tummy, do not tuck your shirts in. Instead, choose blouses and tops that reach the center of the bulging area and never tuck them in. This will hide the problem region effectively. Tucking in a top only emphasizes the waistline.

In order to look slimmer, do not wear blocks of color in your fashions. For example, if you wear a white top, black pants, and white shoes, you are going to appear heavier. Only the thinnest people can get away with wearing opposite colors from top to bottom. Choose colors that coordinate well together but arenít so drastically different.

You can look your very best if you choose the clothes that naturally compliment your appearance by making you look slimmer.
