5 tips to Looking Slimmer over Winter
Thick chunky fabrics are great to keep you warm but will make you look fuller and heavier than you are. Chose fabrics which are fine and drape well.
Sizing has not been regulated so what is designed to fit a size 10 in one label may be a 12 in the next and an 8 in the third. I always ask shop assistants what they would have to fit me. I don’t care what the size of anything is. I am more concerned about the fit. I have been known to ask for larger sizes just to make sure that my clothes fit me properly rather than fit me into a particular size category.
Find a great tailor
Now is the time you will start thinking about new pants for autumn/winter, yes, you guys will as well. You have two options here. You can spend untold hours looking for THE perfect pair or you can spend much less time and pick a pair that fit you beautifully around the fullest part of your hips. These trousers can then be taken up and taken in at the waist. You may think this is going to cost you more but it depends if you can afford the hours trying on hundreds of pairs of trousers or you would prefer to find a pair, have them tailored to fit and them spend your precious hours with family or friends or alone curled up with a good book.
Open your neck line up
If you have a heavy chin and do not want to draw attention to it make sure you wear v-necks, tie your scarf into a v-design
Chose your best boot
Fashion is as it is you may be prompted to buy ankle or short boots. Now if your legs are short or your calves are full this is a fabulous way of making you look shorter and stouter than you are. If you love boots, as I do, make sure you either wear dark tights to limit the amount of contrast from leg to boot or make sure your skirts are lower than the top of the boot.
Have a fabulous winter and here is to looking your best.
