7 Awesome Style Tips To Rock the Illusive Slender Waist

Whether you are statuesque, plus size, petite, or essentially average, most women desire to know the secret to whittling their waistlines the easy way. While your shape wear can certainly give the illusion of a smaller waist, there are numerous other stylish options readily available to conveniently help make you look slimmer with minimal effort.

1. Invest in High Waisted Pieces

High waisted apparel {including jeans, skirts and dresses} are extremely popular with celebrities and with good reason. These have a tendency to sit at the best spot on your waist & cinch in your waistline, causing it to appear smaller, while helping you stay on trend for the fall & winter months. Ensure you wear your appropriate size by getting a fitting – to avoid appearing frumpy. Additionally wear heels to make your legs appear longer & leaner.

2. Wrap Up in Style

There is a reason why esteemed designer Diane Von Furstenberg’s classic wrap dress never goes out of style. Stylists insist that the wrap dress is a coveted fashion trick to make any person’s midsection appear smaller. Wrap dresses may tie at the side or the front, and they usually include a splendid neck line which takes away all the attention from your waist and places it on your neck. One that features a fun pattern will likewise take attention away from the areas you are hoping to conceal. To ensure that your dress won’t show unsightly lumps, choose the right size and a fabric of high quality.

3. Wear Flattering Stripes

Sometimes all you need is the right optical illusion – when it comes to cinching your waist. Wearing vertical lines over your midsection can in actuality reduce the appearance of your waistline; this includes vertical-striped prints. For those who do not prefer stripes, you can create a similar kind of illusion by hanging a scarf around your neck which reaches your waistline. What to avoid? Horizontal lines – especially on sweaters and blouses – which are notorious for making any figure seem wider.

4. Look for Contrasting Panel Sides

A dress that gives you a slimmer figure? This isn’t a fashion myth, but rather a brilliant stylish reality that is on trend and compliments every body type! Presumably the most fashionable way to create a beautiful illusion for your waist is to wear apparel that has black or navy panel sides. Stella McCartney initiated this trend a few seasons ago and her dresses sold out instantly. A panel dress which ends at the knee or just below it, will also help you look taller adding to the slimming effect of the dress.

5. Choose the Right Belt

Wearing the right belt can create an hourglass figure; however it all relies on the type, as well as the ensemble itself. A corselet – a wider belt exclusively designed to cinch in the midriff, {running between three to six inches in width} can be worn over a dress or coat. Although if you have a straight figure, try a narrow leather belt that matches your attire; for example, a gray belt over a gray sweater. These can also be styled over dresses, jackets, and coats. The chicest belts to pay special mind to are simple, often with no visible closure, or with a smooth metal clasp for a clean minimalist look.

6. Accessorize to Draw Attention Elsewhere

Another trick to create the illusion of a slimmer midsection is to take attention away from your waist. Some stylists insist that sometimes flaunting your waist with a belt, particularly a wide one, can draw in undesirable attention to the area as it may appear too bulky with the wrong outfit. Instead, have all eyes on you by making a bold, chic statement wearing a detailed collar-neck blouse or bejewelled neck sweater that will keep the eye drawn upward & naturally make your waist blend in beautifully with the rest of your body. Additionally to add sparkle, I would recommend rocking a killer pair of rhinestone chandelier earrings.

7. Go Nude

Take a clue from the pageant girls – a neutral heel is your best friend when creating the illusion of a smaller waistline. The closer the colour of your shoe to your natural skin tone or hosiery tone, the longer & leaner your body will appear. And the leaner you look, the smaller your waist will appear. This is equally effective with miniskirts, pencil skirts, dresses, and even cropped pants. It works well even with swimwear if you are going on holiday and want to throw on a pair of heels with your cover-up!

Are you pleased with these tips? Lose no time & begin testing. Meanwhile, remember that these are fleeting solutions to your problem. Should you want your waist to look a specific way, eat healthy and exercise to achieve the desired effect. If not, learn to love your own body, because we are all unique. Nobody ever said all waists should look the same, because that’s boring, isn’t it?
