The fact that most women want to look good in whatever they wear is no news, thanks to the media, there is an expectation on women to bring their ‘A’ game when it comes to how they present themselves to the world.
While we are not magicians and cannot wave a wand to transform your look, we can guarantee that these wardrobe pieces, when worn in the appropriate size would create a slimmer looking figure no matter your shape.
1. Midi Dress
This dress style accentuates the curves and hits below the knee, creating a longer, leaner look. Though all midi dresses would create a leaner look, for an ultimate effect, choose a midi dress in colour black, Black is a universally slimming colour.
2. Long Sleeveless Vests
A long vest is a great piece to achieve a slimmer torso, outside the lengthening, slimming effect of the jacket, it’s bulky structure aids in concealing any areas you do not want in full display.
3. A-Line Skirts
A good A-line skirt can also create this effect. The waistband usually starts at the smallest part of the torso, the waist, creating the illusion of a smaller than usual waist and gently flaring out over the hips masking the midsection and wider hips. Another trick to consider in choosing the perfect A-line skirt is finding the right length, If you are smaller, opt for shorter skirts, if taller go for midi or longer lengths.
4. High Waist Full-Length Pants
High waist pants are a great choice as they start at the smallest part of the torso, the waist, creating a solid, long line to the ankle. The eyes are tricked to travel a longer distance down this seemingly long line from waist to heels. High waist jeans and slim cut pants in solid colours are a good choice, the combination of high waist and a slim cut would create a slimmer than usual effect.
