Dressing Slimmer

Special Offer

Q: What is the best way to dress slimmer while I work on losing weight?

A: Of course chic black is always in style and has an instant slimming effect. Stay away from stretchy fabrics that cling to your shape and emphasize bulges. Choose V-shaped necklines to draw attention to your face and away from problem areas. For pants, stick with well-tailored, clean waistlines, such as flat-front cuts with no pockets; pinstripes are great for elongating your silhouette. Knee-length skirts with A-line cuts are always a safe bet, while a classic pointy toe pump accentuates your calf muscles, making your legs look long and toned.
