5 Slimming Style Rules Almost Every Celebrity Follows

When following the world of celebrity fashion and dressing you start to notice certain trends—of the sartorial kind and otherwise. One such timeless pattern that everyone seems to strive for are the slimming styling rules. The best part of these figure-flattering tricks are that they work for any vibe, whether your look is feminine and sweet or bold and trend-driven. Scroll down to check out the top five slimming style rules and pocket them for yourself!

1. Long Outer Layer

Theory Ivory Vest

Wearing a longer outer layer will make you feel more slender as it so graciously conceals all the stuff you probably want concealed, but also makes you feel cool. Plus, as the weather gets warmer, swap out your light jacket for an extra-long vest.

2. Flared Skirt

If you have any thighs or hips to speak of, a dress or a skirt with a flared shape will likely be ultra-flattering on you. It will nip in at the tiniest part of your waist, and flow nicely over your curves.

3. Monochrome

Wearing one color from head to toe is visually lengthening, making you look taller and leaner. Black is a classic slimming choice, but we love how an all-white outfit looks for summer.

4. Belted Waist

Highlighting your waist with a belt is a slimming trick that works on women of any size. It’s the best way to fake an hourglass figure and highlight your middle section.

5. V-Neck/ Maxi Dress

The slimming wonders of a deep V-neck and a maxi dress are not to be ignored. Not only will it make your jawline and neck appear slimmer, but the upside-down triangle shape draws the eye down to your narrow waist and mimics the silhouette of an hourglass. The maxi meanwhile, elongates the body.

What’s your best slimming trick?

How to Dress for YOUR Body Type

You know what looks good on your body type and probably have that special ‘go-to’ piece that never lets you down like a wrap dress or great pair of trousers. Dressing for your figure is always so important because we are all built a little differently. Below is a more in depth guide and tips of what to choose to work best for your figure.

Hourglass Shape– Curvy with a smaller waist. Highlight your curves, don’t hide them! Emphasize your waist, try a pencil skirt to accentuate your curves and smooth out your thighs.

Or try a Wrap Dress, the V-neck will be ultra-flattering to your bust, and the wrap detail will highlight the curve between your waist and hips.

Apple Shape- If you have a slim lower body and carry your weight around your middle. Minimize your midsection by highlighting your shoulders and legs. Try a Swing Coat, it will be incredibly flattering!

Banana Shape: Banana shaped women are pretty much evenly proportioned when it comes to their shoulders, waist and hips; there is little difference in the measurements of their torso. Therefore the whole point is to define the waist and create the illusion of curves. Highlight the thinnest part of your waist so your hips and bust appear larger and more proportional. Try a slightly cropped blouse with a banded bottom. Blouses that cinch at the bottom are ideal for your shape. For the bottom, try a mini skirt. A shorter hem will show off your legs.

Pear Shape: If the widest part of your body is around your hips. Elongate and balance your figure by accentuating your top half. Try a fit and flare dress. The skirt shape is ideal for highlighting the smallest part of your waist and then generously flaring out to conceal wider hips.
