Regular exercise and a portion control can trim down body mass by 10 pounds, no lying. In any case, not all of us feel that committed, right? If you are a fashionista-trapped-inside- a-curvy- body, then don’t fret. There is bagful of wardrobe hacks which can produce the perfect illusion, as if you are on weight-lifting and clean diet spree.
1. Embrace black
This is the oldest trick of the fashion bible. Embracing black can make you look spruced up, even if you are still nursing those love handles. Wearing head-to-toe black may create a very gothic appearance for you, but try this if you are willing to unleash the ‘inner’ slender diva fully. If black is too monochromatic for you to digest, then any other dark hue can do the same hallucinating trick.
2. Vertical stripes suit curves
Include vertical striped trousers, jackets, A-line dresses and skirts into your wardrobe. Vertical lines actually make your limbs appear elongated and slimmer. Once upon a time, horizontal stripes were taken to be a total no-no for chubby beauties. But this has been long proven a big lie. Those parallel stripes actually give you a thinning makeover.
3. Wear V/deep neck
A V or deep-neck blouse steers away the focus from your mid-riff to the upper body. The fashion scripture says- the more skin you flaunt between your chin and torso, the better your hips and waist will look like. Thus, say ‘hi’ to V-necked outfits. For more inspiration, follow well-endowed beauties like Kim K or Mindy Kaling on Instagram.
4. Explore the right wrap-around dress
Unlike the body-con frocks, a wrap-around dress shrouds your hazardous body areas tactfully – thus giving you a more toned-up physical make-over. Michelle Obama should be your style icon in that sense. The ‘First Lady’ of USA has aced the art of wearing wrap-around dresses and showing how to slay it for long time around.
5. Show some love to color-blocks
Block- printed dresses or color blocked gowns are must-haves, on the off chance you need to emerge 10 pounds leaner in the future social dos. Color block pattern deceives the eyes of the beholder and covers up your ‘challenging’ lower or upper body region.
6. A pair of pointed heels is your best friend
Zero on 2 and ½ inches of heels instead of the platform ones. The former will turn your legs into leaner stems, in case you are wearing a short hem that falls just above your knees. Throw the chunky ankle strap shoes out of your shoe cupboard, if you don’t want to end up looking on the heavier side anyway.
7. Invest on lingerie/corset
Lastly, the dress with the most ideal fit may miss the mark in converting you into a slender swan, if your inner wear is of wrong size. Do invest upon quality inner wear and shape wear such as- tummy control butt lifters, waist training corsets and over bust waist trainers. These will perk up the sagging breasts and tummy to the T.
The enigma behind looking ‘thinner’ lies with dressing up in a wise way, that’s the secret my dear.
