MFG’s Styling Hacks To Make Yourself Look Sleeker
Taking selfies from above may be the easiest way to make your face appear slim, but there’s no camera trick to make your entire body appear like a supermodel. Luckily, you don’t need a magic wand or even a gym to look slimmer than you are — with a few wardrobe staples and styling tricks that define your shape, you can sneakily give off that streamlined look you’ve always craved.
One of the easiest ways to look sleek is to strike up a love affair with a single hue when it comes to styling your entire ensemble from head-to-toe. Going monochromatic is one of the most chicest and timeless ways to lengthen just about any body type — when wearing one shade, there is nothing to draw your eye to, your eye sees one shape, hereby creating a lean silhouette as it doesn’t break up the body. Vary your darks and lights carefully when going the monochromatic route with coloured separates and let your accessories do the colour-blocking instead of your main attire.
Belt it out
When creating an hourglass illusion, anything that accentuates the waist tends to be the best route to take on the road to a slimmer silhouette. Belts that highlight the smallest part of your waist are great for this — they can help create a peplum effect on shorter tops or jackets and nips anything too loose-fitting to help create a chic yet shapely form. With trends like the corset belt doing the fashion rounds lately, just about any outfit can be transformed into a form fitting one. Break up a busy floral pattern or breathe some life into a plain or solid dress with the help of a laced up corset belt. Don’t forget to slip into a pair of nude sling back heels that additionally assist with the slimming effect.

Apart from a few styling tricks, sometimes it is the item of clothing itself that can a lot of the work for you. Case-in-point, the wrap top — it’s one of the easiest ways to fake a slimmer figure. With its cross-over design, the asymmetric line breaks the width of the body in a way that can slim your waist in a cinch. If you’re looking to really accentuate your waist, we suggest opting for one with a plunging neckline that ties at the side. When it comes to your bottoms, you needn’t always run along with your trusted black trousers for a sleeker look — structured midi pencil skirts can do some wonders as well. Not only are they form-flattering, but also do a lot to make your waist appear slim and secretly slender.
