Intelligent Ways to Look Slim and Trim Always
You need not have a svelte figure to don stylish clothes. In fact, it does not matter if you are tall or short, big boned or small boned, or thin or plump. Just select your apparel intelligently such that your body appears to be something that it is really not, and you will get by beautifully.
Yes, the model in the picture above seems somewhat rangy, that is, tall and thin with slender limbs. However, the tight-fitting pants, short top, long overcoat and boots seem ideal for her. Her personal attraction remains undiminished. Her facial expression conveys calm composure. You can project a similar image via skilful mixing and matching of clothing.
Let us suppose that you are not happy with your height. Even, if it complements your weight, you may wish to appear taller. The best thing would be to opt for vertical lines that move in a north-south direction since they tend to elongate your figure and make you look taller. Look at the first image. It could be you carrying all those shopping bags, dressed in a casual outfit comprising of a pair of jeans, half-sleeved T-shirt and ordinary footwear. A small addition serves to convey the impression that you possess a good height and a slim body. What is it? The gloriously visible stripe running down the length of the close-fitting pants do the trick. You may also resort to cleverly darned seams on your clothes. Even oblong scarves in colours contrasting to your apparel offer the impression of chic, streamlined sophistication.
Oh my, these are indeed images to die for! Do you think you have the flair to carry off solid, dark-shaded dresses just as the person in the picture is doing? If you look closely, you will realize that the apparel does not mould itself tightly to your curves; it merely skims over the surface of your skin. Regardless, the innovative pattern suffices to convey the impression of a superbly well-maintained body. Team it with suitable hosiery, matching ankle-length boots and a handbag with shoulder strap. You do cut a striking figure as you walk down the streets, for you are ‘one’ colour from top to toe. For variety, you may go in for perfectly tailored pantsuits having long hems. Similarly, wear pencil slim skirts or trousers teamed with matching turtle-necked tops or sweaters to work. Platforms or stacked heels are ideal for pantsuits, trousers and skirts.
Irregular geometric prints tend to confuse onlookers, as they try to work out the actual proportions of your figure! Which part of your body is smaller, the top half or the bottom half? The printed fabric should go on the smaller half, that is, as a blouse or trousers. Go in for something matte, solid, or dark over the other half. Hide a heavy waist underneath overall printed dresses or loose-fitting, boxy type of T-shirts.
Thus, a little bit of creativity, flair and imagination can go a long way to ensure that people do not pass unflattering comments about your figure.
