Posted: Oct 13 2015 by Lookbook Store
Despite being lifeless, clothes, when chosen correctly and wisely, can give life to your overall look. They may not dictate who you should be and how you should act, they can enhance your self-confidence and appeal.
Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to use clothes to their own advantage. You don't have to be one of them, though, because, as always, we're here to help.
That being said, here are some dressing secrets to help you create the illusion of a slender frame. What for when we love our bodies no matter the shape, you ask? Well, it's because there are times when we just want to look that way.
1. Show your assets with plunge necklines and open backs.

If you've gained weight recently, then it's time to show off your best asset, your bust, by way of wearing a top or dress with a neckline with a plunging or décolleté neckline. You'll find that either can add appeal to your look. However, if you feel conscious sporting such necklines, then opt for a piece with a low or open back.
2. Wrap the flab with wrap dresses.

Contrary to what most people, wrapped dresses are not just for those with svelte figures. It's not something that plus-sized women should shun either. The reason is that the cut and style of a wrap dress can highlight the areas most thin women don't have, such as your chest.
Plus, this can also hide the areas that are not as slender as you would hoped them to be, like your waist. As long as you pick the right cut and fit, it can be flattering for your voluptuous figure. Opt for pieces with draped detailing and you feast on the wonders a wrap dress can do to your figure.
3. Elongate your silhouette with vertical prints and patterns.

When you opt for clothes with such designs, you actually lengthen your silhouette visually. This, in turn, creates the illusion of a small, slender frame.
4. Flatter your look with natural fabric.
Just as important as the style, size and cut, fabric also plays a role in helping you achieve that slender look. Instead of opting for synthetic materials, opt for natural ones, such as cotton, silk, linen and denim. These kind of materials can hide extra bulges that you would have concealed better than any other material.
5. Distract the eyes with scene-stealing accessories.

Sometimes, diet and exercise won't cut. You also need to wear the right kind of clothes, prints and accessories to make you look slimmer. So put these tips in mind the next time you plan your OOTD for an event.
