While most of us are already working on putting together a monsoon wardrobe collection, it is very important to pick the right apparels that can suit our body, mood and style. While looking slim has been the most concerning factors for every fashionista, dressing up appropriately is their only solution.
Whether you want to dress up or dress down, selecting the right pairs of clothes is extremely important. Those who are petit must wear more of pastels and clothes that have smaller prints while the taller ones must consider vertical striped clothes instead of horizontal ones. Improper styling can ruin your look. Chances are you may look even shorter or heavier than you actually are. So before you pick any fashion that’s trending, do care to go through these 3 ultimate style tips on dress to look slimmer. Continue reading!
#1 Pastel Shades
This monsoon definitely give pastels a try. During the previous season, the pastels had hugely dominated the fashion runways, thereby influencing summer and monsoon wardrobes. Fine doses of floral prints against pastel shades or hazelnut backdrops look great, making you look slimmer on the whole. I recommend you to go for pink peaches-and-cream especially if you’re on the petite side.
However, you must also consider your skin tone as not all the pastels suit all the undertones. A wrong choice of color can make you look heavier at times. For instance, pastel green, which suits a fairer tone, can undermine the dark beauties. If you have an olive skin tone then pastels in the lilac shade is best recommended for you.
Choice of color is always crucial if you want to look slim. Apart from pastels, always prefer some bold shades say black which is an ultimate way of hiding your flaw areas. White, on the other hand, will always backfire and give you a broader look.
Just pair your pastel shade top with your jeans and you can rock the look.
P.S Do not go for skinny jeans with short tops/blouses especially if you are heavier at the bottom (Pear-shape).
#2 Long Skirt
Are you heavier at the bottom but have a great height? These days long flared skirts and maxis are quite a rage. They are available in an array of classy yet flirty designs from ethnic to Bohemian prints. All you need is to pick the right print for the right occasion.
The reason why I recommend long skirts is because they capture your torso at the smallest spot as they are usually worn high-waist. In this way your figure is slimmed out virtually.
Hot and in-trend among the Bollywood celebrities, from Kareena Kapoor in “Kurbaan” to Alia Bhatt in “2 States”, the Bollywood beauties are promoting this style hugely. So, long skirts can be your best bait this summer.
Don’t be surprised if you see this typical formal wear in this list of top 3 style tips to look slim. While button-downs or a formal shirt can seem to you a boring corporate wear; it’s potentially a fashion element if styled correctly.
Always remember this basic fashion rule that it is always about patterns to make a great outfit.
I would suggest you to try H&M button-downs, as they offer an array of styles suiting almost every body type. Plus, they are notoriously high on fashion.
If you are bigger on top then go for formal shirts like H&M button-downs. They do not even give you the risk of peek-a-boo unlike regular formal shirts. They perfectly drop on your waist making your hips appear slimmer. H&M make great shirts for hourglass figures. Go for stripes or floral pattern – I’m sure you’ll thank me later after your shopping at H&M.
However, be warned not to go for the box-shaped button-downs that many other brands suggest. Instead, go those that have a curve.
