Thin is in, although every year it seems as though someone says we’re going to start appreciating curves and a little weight, it’s still all about being (or looking) thin. So how can you dress to look thinner?
Empire waist dresses have always been a great way to hide a little extra belly and butt fat. With the high waist the dress flairs a bit early giving you more room to hide in. But don’t rely on empire waist dresses or even empire tops and blouses because if you wear them too often people will think you’re pregnant.
The color you choose can also be slimming. Who doesn’t know that a little black dress cut in just the right way can make a woman look fantastic? But not many people realize that a white dress can have just the same effect and is much fresher and more fun to wear in the summer months.
Asymmetrical clothing has really rocketed in popularity and they can work really well to hide that extra padding you don’t want to show, or to at least confuse the eye and keep it from noticing symmetrical lumps and bumps.
One look to stay away from if you’re trying to hide a little extra weight is the very popular ruffles and faux flowers. These cute little feminine touches are just added space that your clothing will take up, meaning it looks as though you’re taking up additional space.
