Here’s How to Look Thinner with Clothes
Sometimes, actually pretty much always, it’s the small styling detail that makes a big difference and one of today’s tips is all about corners.
So now that you saw and heard me tell you to avoid squared corners I’m going to slightly contradict myself as you can see here in this before and after of my wonderful client wearing a squared corner jacket in her after photo.
She’s wearing an outfit I created using the clothes she purchased from our shopping trip, where I must say I found some incredible deals and fabulous wardrobe building pieces for her.
And yes, her new jacket has squared corners and here’s why it and everything else she’s wearing is perfect on her and will make all of us look thinner with clothes:
- This jacket is meant only to be worn open on her and since it hangs straight down it’s an instant middle minimizer.
- The bracelet sleeve length is another secret, shhh, way to minimize the middle and visually lengthen the body.
- Full vs ankle-length pants are typically more slimming.
- Wearing a top under a jacket untucked.
- This neckline is much more flattering on her than the low and wide one in her before outfit.
- Wearing the same color from top to bottom is always a slimming and lengthening trick yet this after outfit proves you don’t have to be in only dark colors from head to toe to look slimmer and stylish.
These are all great examples of how small tweaks transform an outfit and when you know what to look for.
