The next best thing to workouts and eating right? Figure flattering styles…
Here are 10 Tips on how to look instantly slimmer, whatever your body shape or size. Prepare for compliments!
1. Pick your prints wisely.
Prints aren't as slimming as solid colours, but you can make them work for you by playing up their camouflaging features. The golden rule of prints: The smaller the print, the smaller you look.

2. Sport the right blazer
Jackets that are hip-length with tailored lines will look sleek; ones that are too baggy or that pull are figure-flattery disasters. Tapered blazers will always whittle your waist.

3. Slip on a Structured Coat
Swap your cardigans for structured coats to create a more stylish look. Waist-length cardigans tend to shorten your body while long, hip-grazing coats make torsos seem long. Try and have them ending above your knee-line.

4. Look for these flattering Tailored Trousers Features
Flat-front styles. They're instant minimisers if you're curvy. Unlike pleats, a flat front creates an unbroken line across your stomach—making you look taller and slimmer. A waistband between one and two inches wide. Narrower ones can divide (and draw attention to) a tummy bulge. A smidge of stretch will you’re your trousers hold on to the clean, sharp fit you bought them for.
