Say good-bye to any pants that have an elastic waist if you want to look slimmer. For a trim look, pick straight-leg pants in a dark color that fit well with no bunching across the hips, stomach, or thighs. If your pants have horizontal wrinkles when you wear them, the fit is off, and you may need to have them tailored or go up a size. Pants should fall straight from the hip and have no cuffs. Choose flat-front styles because pleats add to a bulky appearance, something that's undesirable if you want to look trimmer.
We've put together a list of 10 fashion styles that can make women look thinner and taller. These styles are slimming for all women, and for petites, they have the extra benefit of also making short women look a bit taller.
A sheath dress is a slimming style as long as the details are right. For the most slimming look, choose a knee-length sheath dress in a dark color. The dress should fit well, neither too tight nor too loose, or the slimming effect may be lost. The most slimming neckline for a sheath dress is a V-neckline because it elongates the neck, making the wearer look a bit slimmer and taller. Choose a sheath dress in a matte fashion fabric, rather than a shiny fabric because shiny materials make the wearer look larger. Don't forget the shapewear if you want the most slimming effect, and add a jacket to help disguise figure flaws if you like.
