Look Leaner Instantly: Fall Fashion Tricks
by Nicole Brewer
The secret to looking leaner instantly is choosing the right style for your body type. This fall, it’s all about sophisticated silhouettes, luxurious fabrics and rich colors that will get you noticed. Here are my favorite tips and trends to make the season’s hottest fashion work for you.
Short Sweaters & Jackets
Cropped jackets and sweaters are hot for fall and can make you look leaner. They hit just at the waist, defining the midsection by drawing the eye to the narrow part of your middle–creating a waist-cinching effect to effortlessly drop a dress size instantly.
The Monochromatic Look
It’s all about color, especially with red, cobalt and black taking center stage this season. This long column dress is all one color, elongating the body for a slimmer you.
Textured or embellished, wide or skinny, waist cinching wraps and belts work every
Strategic Color Blocking
The color blocking trend continues into fall with rich jewel tones and classic color combos. This high waisted gown gives the illusion of a smaller waistline while the darker skirt helps to make legs look longer and leaner.
Style Tip: Shop for Smart Shapewear
Controlling your curves is simple: find the right shapewear. Choose a comfortable, high-waisted panty with lycra or spandex to smooth out your torso, regardless of your size. The newest shapewear designs guarantee that your clothes will fit better, without clinging.
