Slimming Clothing Tips and Tricks to Help You “Lose” Those Last 5 Pounds!

Don’t worry about eating that extra piece of pizza or if you just didn’t have the time to run today, because we have a little secret to tell you! Not to say that eating healthy and exercising regularly aren’t good habits to get into, but we all know that sometimes life gets in the way. For those moments, there are certain clothing tricks, colors, and silhouettes that can give the illusion that you are actually 5 to 10 pounds thinner. So, what are you waiting for?


1. Try a Bootcut Style
Although one of the current trends includes skinny jeans, this style is not for everyone. If you don’t think skinny jeans suit you, then try a pairboot cut jeans. A of boot cut style is "ultra-flattering" on most shapes, and has low back pockets to give your bum a subtle lift.

2. Accentuate your Middle
Drawing attention to your waistline instantly creates a feminine silhouette. With that being said, no outfit is not complete until it is belted. Belts instantly create shape by defining the waist. Try a brown or beige belt like this fabulous Marc by Marc Jacobs Clasp Belt, which will match almost anything in your wardrobe. In addition to the belt, the staple top that every girl must own is the
wrap top. The wrap waist accentuates the middle and can also be layered over a slimming cami.

3. Smaller Isn’t Slimming
Don’t wear a size smaller just because it makes you feel better, or bigger because you don’t want to "show your figure". If the clothes are too big, the perceived boundaries of your figure will be extended to the edges of the garment; if the clothing is too small, the fabric will bunch and draw attention to bulges.

4. Wear Slimming Undergarments
Nobody has to know what’s underneath; if you would like some added oomph, wear a below-the-waist shaper, such as Spanx. Choose bras and underwear with nonbinding bands to avoid unwanted rolls. Also, don’t buy one to wear with everything. You need various styles for different outfits.

5. Maintain Balance & Proportion
If you are wearing something tight on your bottom half (like leggings or skinny jeans), then pair it with a loose-fitting top. If you are wearing something form-fitting on top, pair it with something that has some volume (like wide leg trousers or bootcut jeans). Simple as that!


1. Create Shape with Flowy Dresses & Cardigans
The perfect outfit for the warmer months is a flowy dress paired with a loose cardigan and a belt to give you shape. The light fabric of this dress style floats over curves instead of clinging to them, and the loose "cardigan’s shape" covers the arms and frames the silhouette so you, in turn, look thinner!.

2. Hide Bulges with Oversized Cardigans & Skinny Pants
Another cardigan option that slims is an oversized lightweight cardigan worn with skinny pants and heels. The skinny pants emphasize your slim lower legs, while the heels (preferably in the same color) not only give you glamorous height, but also elongate your legs. Again, the cardigan does not add bulk and skims your sides to hide any bulges.

3. Lengthen your Body with a Monochromatic Palette
An outfit consisting of monochromatic colors instantly streamlines your shape and effortlessly lengthens the body. The colors do not have to be the exact same, as long as they are in the same color family. Shades of white and cream keep the effect airy and light, while black and grey hues create a great night-out outfit.

4. Trim your Figure with Layers
A calculated combination of layers trims the figure. Try a cropped jacket over a "baby doll" top, paired with slouchy pants and wedges. The top covers up the tummy while the cropped jacket defines the waist and slims the upper arms. The dramatic length of the pants automatically makes legs look extra long, especially with the added height from the wedges.

Use these tricks to help you look and feel better. You can easily slim down with the use of a few key items in your wardrobe and some careful planning!
