We all have those days where we aren’t feeling great about our bodies. Your muffin top feels super-sized and those wobbly bits are all too wobbly. But is there anything you can do to up your body confidence when you are feeling decidedly unsexy? We think that by following a few simple style rules you can achieve a slim and sexy look even on your off days. So dive in and explore our top fashion tips to look slimmer.
Know your Body Shape
Have you taken time out to actually assess your shape? Are you a classic apple, pear or maybe even an hour glass? It sounds incredibly simple but actually looking at your shape in a mirror and understanding it will help you figure out what will work for you. Sometimes we avoid looking at ourselves properly because we are worried or self-conscious of lumps and bumps. I say embrace your shape, know it, love it and understand what cuts and styles will work for you. Explore our collections organized by body shape to help you make the most of your natural figure.
Achieve a Balanced Silhouette
This is one style commandment every woman should follow. The basic principle of a balanced silhouette for most women is that the shoulders and bust should be around the same width as your hips. This creates the sought after small waist whilst displaying gorgeous curves in all the right places. A great belt can help you achieve this by cinching you in at the middle and for those of us that are narrower at the top a tailored jacket can create the illusion of balance. Ask yourself when putting together any outfit ‘Am I balanced?’ and watch your style hits soar.
Focus on the Fabulous
Ok, so we all have bits of ourselves that we aren’t too happy with, I am thinking jelly bellies and wobbly upper arms. But on the flip side all of us also all have parts of our body that are utterly fabulous and we should be embracing these! Make sure your dress to draw attention to all of your most gorgeous bits. Are you lucky enough to have a va va voom bust? Make sure you show it off in V necks. If gorgeous shapely calves are your thing than invest in some midi dresses and skirts to display your awesome pins. Make a list of your top three features and pick outfits that advertise them to their full potential.
Following our fashion tips to look slimmer will not only help you look incredible but leave you feeling a million dollars.
