The most slimming shoe style is also the best shoe style for petites who want to look a bit taller — a sleek high-heeled pump with a pointed toe. Add a V-shaped vamp or d'Orsay styling, and your sleek shoe will be even sleeker. Best colors for a slimming shoe? Black is always good because it goes with anything, and the dark color is slimming. Other dark colors, such as navy or aubergine can work well too. The other slimming color choice for a high-heeled pump is a skin-tone hue. No matter what the color of your skin, matching it as closely as possible to your shoe color will make your legs look longer, and it will also make you look thinner and taller.
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.
