10 Tips to Look 10lbs. Thinner
Define your waistline.
If you want to know how to dress to look thinner, finding ways to define your waist is a great first step. This helps create the illusion that you have an hourglass figure with curves in exactly the right places, even if you don’t. Cinch it! on the back of your dress at your waistline, creates the perfect slimming look. Cinch a blouse just under the breast to create a pretty and flattering empire waistline.
Wear clothes that fit.
Contrary to popular belief, wearing clothes that are a size too big or a size too small for your frame doesn’t always make you look slimmer. Bulky clothing is more likely to make you look bigger than you actually are, and sizing down tends to draw attention to problem areas like back fat, muffin tops, and cellulite, so always choose clothing that fits true to size. Cinch it! Is perfect for taking in that extra fabric, try it on the side seam of a top!
Choose undergarments wisely.
When it comes to finding clothes that make you look slimmer, your undergarments are just as, if not more important than your outfit. Tight bras draw attention to back fat, and tight panties can cause rolls, muffin tops, and cellulite to show through your clothes. It’s worth the time to get fitted properly and to check in the mirror before walking out the door! Remember, shapewear is your best friend!
Wear heels with skinny jeans.
If you’re a fan of skinny jeans but feel self-conscious about the width of your legs, avoid flats and flip flops at all costs. You can make your legs look longer by ensuring your denim is at least ankle-length and pairing them with a sexy pair of pointed-toed heels (round toed shoes make your legs look stumpy).
OR swap skinny jeans for boot cut jeans.
If you want to draw attention away from your tummy and thighs, ditch your skinny jeans in favor of bootcut or slightly flared jeans to add height to your frame. Choose a dark wash (avoid light-colors) with a high waist, and for maximum effect, make sure the bottom of the jeans hits your shoes.
When you dress in 2 contrasting colors and/or prints, the eye is naturally drawn to the area in which the 2 come together, which is typically your waistline. This can be a good thing if you have a natural hourglass figure, but if you want to elongate an already boxy frame, dressing in one color is a simple way to lengthen your body by creating one, sweeping look. Use a Cinch it! to add an angle at the bottom hemline, this creates an optical illusion and makes you look thinner instantly.
Vertical stripes only please.
It’s no secret that horizontal stripes can make us look wider, but that doesn’t mean you need to avoid stripes completely. You just need to be a bit more strategic when wearing them. Remember that stripes tend to stand out, so if you’re trying to figure out how to dress to look thinner, opt for smaller, vertical stripes in dark colors and avoid dressing yourself in the same pattern from head-to-toe. While stripes can certainly be slimming, you want to accentuate your waistline. For example, a black top cinched at the waist with a Cinch it!, over a pair of pin-striped pants can elongate your legs and make you look slimmer instantly.
Wear v-neck tops.
Another simple but effective tip to teach you how to dress to look thinner is to wear v-neck tops as they help elongate your upper body by adding balance to your hips and thighs. This is an especially great tip for gals with a bigger bust as v-neck tops will naturally draw the eye away from problem areas and towards the cleavage instead. Cinch it! at the bottom hem of the t-shirt will also draw the eye and accentuate your positives!
Have fun with accessories.
Necklaces, earrings, belts, and bracelets can help draw the eye away from problem areas while accentuating your best features. For example, long necklaces take the focus away from the hips, big earrings draw attention away from the upper body and towards the face, big bracelets are great at hiding big upper arms by bringing the eye towards the wrists, and belts, like Cinch it!, help define the waist.
Your own confident style.
Create your own unique style with Cinch it! Let’s face it, when your clothes fit better, you not only look better, you feel better, and you are more confident!
