As we roll into fall, the fashion season has changed. For most of us, this means trying to look a bit thinner and taller than we are. Whether you are a few pounds above what you want to be or a full figured woman, there are some basic tips to follow.
Yes, certain outfits can make you look taller and thinner. There are two areas to focus on. The first is the color of the outfits you are wearing. The second, of course, has to do with the actual clothes you choose.
There are many different ways of achieving a look when it comes to fashion. In our effort to look taller and thinner, we want to focus on one word. Verticality. The more vertical your look, the thinner and taller you will appear.
Color goes a long way to creating a look. With your outfits, a lack of color is the best starting point. We are talking black or dark blue from head to toe as the starting point. You can add color and accessorize later, but this is our starting point.
You can then add color to the outfit by wearing a colored blazer or sweater over your shoulder. This brings a bit of color into the look, but maintains the vertical lines of the outfit, which maintain the taller and thinner look.
As any woman knows, accessories can make a look. This is also true in this case. Make sure you stay with the vertical theme. An excellent way to do this is to wear a scarf. Go with a long one and let it hang. This will make you look taller and thinner.
As a full figured woman, I have a thing for large, thick belts. If you are the same way, keep in mind such belts conflict with efforts to look taller and thinner. They tend to draw attention and defeat the look. Go with something thin.
For many women, the thought of wearing a skirt when trying to look thinner is an iffy proposition. It can work. The key is to go with a bit of a longer skirt. Make sure to take an objective look in the mirror.
Topping off our outfit will be the shoes. Shoes can make or break a look. In this case, however, they can literally help us look taller. Yes, I am talking about high heels. Go has high and thin as you can.
What about outfits that have stripes? Horizontal stripes are not a good choice. Vertical stripes can be used occasionally, but generally should be avoided wherever possible. Stripes just do not make the full figured women.
Super models in magazines look great and all, but what about the rest of us women? We are never going to weigh 19 pounds! Follow the advice in this article, however, and you will not have to.
