WEAR all BLACK
A black silk jumpsuit is an easy way to wear head-to-toe black in summer.

skin colour heels = longer legs
You can't go past this under-$100 pair from Sportsgirl.
vertical stripes are your friend
How we'd style it? Over a pair of cropped flares. Showing a bit of skin at the ankle is another secret slimming trick.
stack on the jewellery
Jewellery is more than just a way to add some personality to your outfit. It can also work as a powerful slimming tool. Use your jewels to guide the eye towards the area you'd prefer to draw attention to. I.e. your waist with a long necklace, or your décolletage with a choker.
This long-line necklace is perfect for layering.
