When it comes to choosing what to wear for the day, of course you want an outfit that could make you look slimmer. Do you know that by accessorizing your outfit you can also create the intended look? Yes. Trust me. Just remember this simple formula - right outfit for your body shape plus suitable accessories equal to thinner and slender appearance. You don’t have to be at the gym all day or go on a crazy diet just to look a few pounds thinner. Start accessorizing! Here are some useful tips and tricks on how to perfectly use jewelry, belts and bags from your wardrobe in order to achieve a stunning slimmer look.
1. Accessorizing with Jewelry
Normally, people tend to be attracted to the jewelry that you wear. Their eyes will focus on the part where the jewelry is on so use this to your advantage to conceal your body flaws. First, you have to be familiar with your body type and shape. Then, go on and pick necklaces, earrings or bracelets that suit you most.
With the right style, necklaces can help to draw the attention of others away from your bottom half, your hips and your bust. Do not wear short necklaces that are chunky or heavy when accessorizing. Slip on a long necklace. The long design of the U shape necklace will add length to short neck and torso. You’ll definitely look taller and leaner.
Bracelets, bangles, cuffs and rings
Wish that you could hide your upper arms? Choose a bracelet, stacks of bangles, cuffs, or even sparkly rings. These will draw the eye right to the wrists so your arms will be less noticeable. The same thing applies if you want to hide your hips or thighs.
Wide cuffs or chunky bracelets could help to veil a large wrist. However, please bear in mind that if you have short arms, avoid these kind of accessories. They tend to make your arms look even shorter.
Wear a pair of dangly earrings to redirect others’ eyes away from the middle part of your body. This type of earrings will highlight your face, neckline and collarbones to let the focus be on your face only, indirectly evading other areas.
2. Accessorizing with Belts
Do not forget to try belts. One of the simplest way of looking thinner is by putting on a belt over your outfit. It is a great accessory that can bring out your waist in a perfect way, creating an illusion of leaner shape especially when you wear a loose dress or blouse. It is wise to choose a thin belt to cinch your waist compared to the wider one since it will somehow distort your appearance.
3. Accessorizing with Bags
Always remember, when choosing a bag to match your outfit, find something that is proportional to your figure. A small bag will give an out of proportion look (you do not want to be looking like a giant carrying around a small bag) while big slouchy one creates a bigger illusion of your figure. A satchel or a hobo bag is a good pick as attention will be drawn to the waist, not your hips or bottom half.
Knowing how to accessorize is surely an advantage. Looking slimmer with the outfit that you don will no more be a difficult task. Employ the simple tricks mentioned above. Be confident to accessorize with jewelry, belts, not to forget, bags and look thinner in a matter of seconds. Get ready to strike great OOTD poses for your Instagram.
