While there’s still no magic pill we can take to drop the kilos or body sucking device that can completely change our body shape, there are some ways that we can create the illusion of a slimmer, leaner body. Just a couple of changes to a wardrobe can help to slim anyone down in a big way. These are the things we love to do in order to slim, tuck and hide the parts of our body we don’t want the whole world to see!
1. Create a lengthening illusion by going vertical
Choose long scarves and long line cardigans to drape over outfits, making the body look longer and slimmer. Our picks are:
Capture Merino Waterfall Cardigan
Lurex Stripe Scarf
2. Choose prints and pair them with something simple
Prints can make the wearer look slimmer if they’re worn in small parts with great support neutrals. Try a plain bottom with a printed top or vice versa. Both of the pieces below would look great and fresh with white pants or a white T Shirt.

3. Go back to black if you don’t like prints
If prints aren’t your thing go for simple neutrals with a base of black – you can always dress it up with bright accessories.

4. Draw attention away from the body
Then you team those plain pieces with big, bold jewellery. It draws the attention upwards from the body to the face which on almost everyone is the best feature!

5. Skim the hips and lengthen with tunic tops
Tunic tops are wonderful for slimming. They skim over the hips and bottom, two parts of our bodies that we are often a little uncomfortable with. This creates the illusion of a slimmer and smoother figure.
