Liz Lange and Jane Wagman, the sisters and fashion experts behind Shopafrolic.com, have shared 7 fashion tips to help you look slimmer this summer – no shapewear necessary!
1. Color Blocking
The sisters say that color blocking (a huge trend right now) can help you look slimmer when you pair dark colors on the bottom with a lighter color on top. Try a pair of red jeans and a light colored blouse for a killer color block combo.
2. Vertical Stripes
While horizontal stripes will make you look larger than you are, vertical stripes do the opposite and help you achieve a slimmer-looking silhouette. Liz & Jane recommend a striped dress or top.
3. 1950’s Style Dresses
According to these style experts, the 1950’s “fit-and-flare” style dresses will help you look slimmer because the dress nips in your waist and helps camouflage bigger thighs. Plus, this retro style is totally fab and figure flattering!
4. Long Tunics
Look for a long tunic or cardigan in a lightweight fabric. These tops help hide any problem areas you want to cover up but won’t add volume, either.
5. Define your Waist
One of the easiest ways to fake a leaner silhouette is to cinch your waist line with a belt. When you add definition at the waist, you will always look slimmer – guaranteed!
6. Patterned Top with White Jeans
Liz & Jane say that for women who are heavier in the mid-section, you can fake a leaner figure by pairing a fun, blousy top with white jeans. We like patterned tops in a fun color or print.
A good pair of wedges can make your legs appear super long, which will contribute to a leaner looking figure all-around. The sisters say to pair longer shorts with nude wedges, which will make your legs look miles long!
