What is more frustrating that continually staring at your scale when starting a diet and not seeing the pounds coming off fast enough? Instead of letting those disappointing numbers discourage you, you can always psych yourself up with these fashion tips to look slimmer that can instantly subtract 10 pounds off of your figure.

Regardless of your figure, there is a universal style that compliments all shapes with a wrap dress. Despite what section of the body is your problem area, this style cuts figure proportions ideally to balance the top and bottom. With how materials like a cotton jersey blend, cotton spandex knit or a cotton spandex blend flows over the figure, you can narrow a waist and hide the bottom half of the body.

Dressing in a solid color can streamline the body to make you to appear leaner compared to breaking up the top half and bottom half with different colors.  Dark colors such as black, navy, brown, plum, charcoal, gray, and forest green can instantly subtract 10 pounds by elongating the figure.

Take your problem area into consideration. If you have big hips and thighs, you don’t want to wear pleats. They only can accentuate the area by adding more bulk from all that extra material. A straighter line can serve you better such as a pencil style skirt without focusing on the heavier area.

The same principle of simplicity applies for those that are top heavy. Overdoing layers or turning to pieces with too many fussy details will only guide eyes toward your chest area when a plain, simple neckline won’t distract the eyes in your bust direction.

To strike more balance from a generous bust line, try adding a long necklace to your outfit. The length of that necklace has the power to pull the eyes away from your chest area downward.

Focus on vertical lines when you put your outfit together can instantly subtract 10 pounds. You can fool the eye into thinking that you’re slimmer than you are by altering color with a pattern piece. For example, you might want to try wearing a turtleneck in black or another solid color under a print-patterned dress.

Another tip to instantly subtract 10 pounds is avoiding baggy or too tight styles in favor of ones that really fit your body. Trying to hide behind too much material of a baggy outfit also makes you appear fatter. Likewise, if you squeeze into overly tight dress or pants, you can look like a stuffed sausage about to break through its casing by the way it constricts to change your shape.

These are just a few fashion tips to look slimmer that might help to instantly take off 10 pounds from your figure!

    I love wrap dresses and cross-wrap tops – they work well to hide my belly.

    I have never gotten into wrap dresses, no clue why. I do tend to dress monochrome and usually darker colors especially winter/fall. Itis so cold here though we all look like chubby bunnies with all the layers!
