6 Slimming Essentials That Aren't Basic Black
There’s an old rule of thumb we all know (and practice!). Want to look slimmer? Dress in black. While we’re certainly not disagreeing, there are other ways to flatter your figure without tossing on the darkest items in your closet.
Below, we’re showcasing five items to invest in if you’re looking to appear slimmer. While you could totally purchase these items in black if you want to, we’d urge you to try them in another color (like the ones we highlight) to brighten up your vibe.
Keep scrolling to check out (and shop!) the essentials that’ll enhance your look this spring.
A tailored blazer that fits you flawlessly will naturally make you appear trimer—add a tie detail that cinches in your waist, and you’ll look slimmer.
A waistcoat creates clean lines that go up and down your body to help elongate your silhouette.
There’s no need to wear all black when you can simply add a belt to whatever jacket or sweater you’re wearing to define your waist and instantly make you look trim.
We love the idea of a light midi dress that hits right above the ankle, because the long silhouette will make you feel taller.
A cropped jacket is one of the simplest items you can toss on to look slimmer and flatter your figure. Why? A shorter jacket style hits right above the waist, which will make your legs look significantly longer.
A simple way to look leaner is to incorporate vertical stripes into your wardrobe in unexpected ways—like on your trousers.
