You may not be able to take off those extra pounds by New Year’s Eve, but here are a few tips to help you appear thinner.
No. 1: Wear solid, monochromatic colors. The best way to hide a few extra pounds is wearing a top and pants of the same hue. If you are wearing a dress, make sure your tights and shoes are similar in shade.
No. 2: Keep your hair out of your face. If it’s short, pull it back with clips or a headband.
No. 3: Accessorize to accentuate your best features. A long necklace lengthens a look, and pretty earrings draw attention to the face.
No. 4: Be careful where your clothes end. If you have a wide waist, wear a longer tunic style top. For a slim upper body, feature it with a belt.
No. 5: Show off your neck. A deep V-neck or scoop neck makes your body appear long and lean.
