Every fashion expert worth their salt will tell you it’s horizontal and not vertical stripes that make you look thinner, especially the ones with thin dark coloured stripes on a lighter base colour. As for the vertical stripes, now would be the time to ditch them.

2) Go for snug fits

Wear body hugging clothes that fits your contours snugly, because contrary to popular belief that loose, flowing clothes help you hide the flab, it is the form fitters that do the job better.

3) Draw attention to your waist

Use attractive belts, tuck in your shirts or wear clothes with highlights at the waistline to draw the attention to the narrowest part of your torso. This absolutely helps divert the focus from any unpleasant sags or bulges.

4) Opt for high heels

The taller you look, the slimmer you are bound to appear so go on and add a few inches to your height by wearing high heels. If you are not comfortable in stilettos and have trouble balancing yourself, opt for the simpler platform heels or wedges.

5) Wear boot cut trousers in dark colours

The boot cut helps divert attention from the pelvis, thighs, abdomen and rear end and gives your body and overall slimming effect. The cut also helps make your legs appear longer and slimmer.

6) Give shapewear a shot

Innerwear that tuck in flab, smoothen out the rolls, and camouflage the love handles are a godsend for women. You can try wearing tummy tuckers or different types of corsets to get a silhouette to kill for.

7) Be careful about fabric selection

Choose clothes made out fabrics like cashmere, cotton, lycra and spandex as the stretch out to fit your form and steer clear of  heavy materials like suede and corduroys that add a lot of pounds to your appearance.

8) Utilise the v-neck illusion

You will see how a simple neckline alters your appearance when you opt for V-necked tops that have a slimming effect by giving an illusion of height. It’s an extremely failsafe and flattering neckline that delivers on its promise every time.
