How to dress to look slimmer?

Dear Reader,

Christmas is in the air and most of you, including me, have forgotten about their discipline and diet due to the magic vibes and sweet and merry mood! Winter is the time when body urges to keep warmth and due to the cold weather, there is no wish and consequently time of going to the gym. The fight between brain and natural instincts take place. Knowing that any woman would like to lose a few pounds/kilograms and look slimmer than now. However, there is no time for it and  I have decided to share with you the secret formula of how to look slimmer without dieting and fitness, just by choosing the right clothes!

Today, I will convey the most common mistakes that we all do when we want to look slimmer. The first is that we strongly believe that wearing black will make us look slimmer and hide extra pounds/kilograms that we have gained. The problem here is that dress in black all the time makes you look gloomy, boring and too serious.

The second mistake is to wear oversized, unisex clothes with no particular shape. You might think that the more voluminous the clothes are, the more it covers your body and therefore the slimmer you seem. However, it actually works the opposite way – a woman wearing clothes that do not fit in size loses the shape and rather looks like a piano covered by a veil).


The third mistake is avoiding experimenting and dressing only in basic and very simple things. That represents that you are afraid of everything that is fashionable and bright. I can assure you that understanding of how to match the colors and styles will help you to hide extra pounds by wearing bright clothes and accessories. I strongly believe that each woman with any type of the figure is beautiful.  Moreover, it is an art to understand and to know how to properly shape your figure.

The main rule is how to look slimmer is to remember the most important rule of all European stylists – “camouflage technique”. Using this approach means not to close yourself with black voluminous things when you are not visible in them, but to disguise what you do not like in the figure and transfer the focus to your merits.


How does this technique work? Firstly, we need to identify those parts of the body that seem to be imperfect to you. Most likely you have a long list and know the answer to this question. Contrary, we need to determine your strengths. That might seem like a more difficult task. I would suggest emphasizing on those parts of your body that seem beautiful to you. For example, this can be hair, legs, wrists, hands, legs,hips, breast, waist, etc. So, when choosing what to wear choose darker colors and shades for the voluminous parts of the body. I would suggest selecting from black, dark blue, dark brown, dark gray, etc. Contrary, on those parts of your body that are your virtues, you will put on clothes and accessories with prints and patterns of a bright color.

Basic and simple things should be a part of your silhouette and design on those parts of your body that you feel are uncomfortable with and fashionable and original clothes will highlight your merits. This way, you will avoid the look of a gray boring mouse, present your body in a winning way and be perceived as fashionable and modern woman.

For example, for those with big hips, but beautiful breast, I would recommend wearing a simple black A-line skirt and a striped top. Complete your look with a red jacket and necklace. That way you will divert attention from the hips to the top of your figure and show off a beautiful chest.

In case you have beautiful legs, but broad shoulders – wear a black long-sleeve base top and a bright and stripe midi skirt. All attention will be focused on the legs and the unusual skirt. Noone will notice the problem shoulders.

If you desire to hide your belly and you have slender legs – put on a black simple tunic-dress on unusual pants with a bright print. By covering the belly and visually making it slimmer the focus will fall on slender legs.

In cases when you do not like anything in yourself – you can make accessories as a focal point. I suggest going for the bright and fashionable accessories that will lead the eye away from your figure – an unusual scarf, original earrings, designer bracelet, bright red gloves, and shoes with laces.

Moreover, within a month I am planning to launch an online course on how to find your personal style and I will teach you how to shop properly.
