Choose clothes with vertical lines and V-necks, which help you look taller and slimmer. Go easy on horizontal stripes, 'cause they'll make you look wider.
Wear clothing that highlights your waist to accentuate your curves. For example, choose a tailored jacket, an A-line skirt or a wrap dress. If you have a less fitted outfit, add a belt to define your waist.
Mix less flattering items, such as baggy tops or skirts with large prints, with fitted, slimming items, such as tailored jeans or a slim-cut tee.
Wear slimming colors, such as black and navy, especially over areas you want to minimize. For example, if you have wide hips and are a pear shape, pair a fun top with simple black pants. If you are top-heavy, go for a black top and a brightly patterned skirt.
Avoid thick, chunky fabrics or fabrics that have distracting sheens or textures, such as corduroy or leather.
Choose skirts that hit the top of your knee, and wear pants instead of shorts. Short skirts and shorts aren't as flattering.
Wear heels. You'll look taller and thinner and feel sexier, too.
Stand up straight. Good posture helps you look confident and slim.
Your clothes should fit you closely but not be tight. Baggy clothes make you look heavier.
