Dress Slimmer to Look Thin
To dress slimmer, begin by wearing clothes that fit. Clothes that are too big or too small will make you look fat. Do not wear clothes that are too tight because it creates the appearance of rolls of fat or emphasizes existing rolls of fat. It is also best to avoid clothes that are too loose because they make you look like you are trying to hide something. Read: Getting Out of My Chubby Kid Clothes
Select clothes that draw in at the natural waist or that part of the waist that is thinnest. To dress slimmer, choose styles that include belts, patterns, or stitching that draw attention to the waist.
Clothes choices to dress slimmer that emphasize the chest and hips are effective because attention to those areas makes the waist look even smaller. Wear skirts and dresses that flare at the hips or tops and make the chest look bigger.
Take care when choosing accessories. Accessories can change how a person’s eyes move over your body and create an impression that you are taller and thinner than you really are. For instance, long necklaces help to create a long and slim look. Earrings and headbands can divert attention from areas of your body that you are not satisfied with.

Accessory and Color Choices that Dress Slimmer
Colors and patterns can help to create a thin look as well. Black is always a good choice when you dress slimmer. It creates the illusion of looking thinner by reducing the shadows that are seen on your body. Vertical stripes create the same illusion because they make the two sides of your body seem closer together. Read: Positive or Negative Body Image
Finally, do not choose clothes that will make you look bigger. For example, a thick sweater will add inches visually and compromise the smaller form that you want to promote.
