1. Layer It Up
Let me just break this myth once and for all. People think that adding more layers means adding extra pounds, but that’s really not true. Adding layers gives your body definition. Plus, it does not give people a direct view of your body. If anything, it is a blessing!
2. Black Be Your BFF
Everything about your wardrobe has to be black. I understand the love for cool whites and pastels, however, just keep it all dark and black as much as possible.
3. Body Compressors/Shape-wear
Swear by shape wear; it’s a blessing in disguise. It tames fat around the midriff, hip, and thigh regions effectively. And it also acts as a catalyst to make you look slimmer. Invest in it, and you will be thankful.
4. High Rise Jeans
High-waist jeans should be on your hit list because they tuck in most of the flab and do a great job of making you look slender, tall, and slim. The ones that are black, stretchable, and stop near your ankle are what you need. Fetch those straight-cut high-rise jeans!
5. Inner Wear
Inner wear is a big part of this puzzle and is the base for everything you will build over. Do not wear a sloppy bra and thongs that add more attention to your muffin tops. Wear a bra that gives you full coverage, without bulges; your underwear should preferably be stretchable and high rise to camouflage the flab. Either way, good undergarments are helpful in more ways than one and are always a great investment.
Wear statement jewellery and beef up your look with details like a necklace, earrings, scarf, bandana, watch, etc. It steers the attention away from anything unflattering. If you are wearing shape-wear, also consider belts that are dark and massive or svelte and that cinch at the waist.
7. Prints And Patterns
Avoid anything with horizontal prints, be it big or small. Vertical print dresses with deep necks are your go-to if you want to look slimmer and taller. And, patterns like A-line cut or a pencil skirt can seal the deal for you.
