We’ve all been there.
As a woman, our desire to lose weight is bound to be based on a variety of reasons. Aside from simply looking good and having more confidence, losing those extra pounds also decreases the risk of certain health complications we may face, including high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.
We often find ourselves trying to fit the mold of that perfect, sexy woman – especially with all those adverts telling us how it’s absolutely necessary we fit into those skinny jeans.
If you happen to be unhappy with your current weight, there’s always a diet or exercise plan that may work for you. But, in the meantime, if you want to look slimmer – girl, you gotta fake it till you make it!
Below are seven ways you can get the look you want, without all the sweat.
1. Longer, Leaner Legs
Wearing jeans with a flare towards the bottom while wearing wedges will help elongate your legs and make them look slimmer.
2. Skinnier Waistline
For a skinnier waistline, fashion experts recommend putting on a well-cut wrap dress. It is both flirty and stylish. The waist of most of these dresses come with a tie, which will seem to take inches off that problem area.
3. No More Muffin Top
The “muffin top” is dreaded by everyone sporting one. But, with the right leggings, you’ll be held in without feeling the discomfort of sucking it in. Plus, this piece of clothing is great to wear while out on errands and even during yoga!
4. A Longer Torso
When you want to give the illusion of a narrower and lengthier torso, try showing off your neckline and chest. Three-quarter sleeve tops usually work best when pulling off this technique.
5. Love Handles
Do you have a blazer in that closet of yours? After all, it is an essential wardrobe staple. Wearing a blazer will help you trim down your back and sides (or any other spot that makes you feel uncomfortable about your figure).
6. Booty-licious Behind
These days, hitting the gym isn’t just about burning calories anymore. No, you want to look good, too! Before getting busy on your work out, jump into a pair of plank capris. They feature flattering designs and will make that butt of yours look extra fine.
7. Wide Hips
To help balance out your hip proportion, get into a pair of boot cut pants. The slight flare at the bottom will help create lean vertical lines, which lengthens your legs.
