8 WAYS TO HIDE A FEW EXTRA POUNDS




It’s easy to look 10 or 15 pounds lighter by following this "clothes diet". So why choose liposuction when you can hide a few extra pounds with easy fashion tricks? You can still wear the latest trends and look great. Just follow our easy, flattering tips

LAY OFF THE LOOSE
The biggest misconception is that looser clothes make you look smaller. Instead, dress in a way that's tailored but not tight. In fact, a good tailor can be your best ally. Cut is even more important than dark colors when it comes to having a slimming effect.

BODY SLIP
A must under today's body-conscious looks, a body slip offers loads of smoothing.

 Choose a style -- from half-slips (great for pencil skirts) to full-body slips (perfect for fitted dresses) -- that works with your outfit.

SOFT LAYERS
Keep your layering pieces lightweight whether you choose two tank tops, an open blouse over a tank top or other combo.

BISECT WITH A BELT
It may sound illogical, but if you have a tummy or a beer belly, your best tactic is to have a belt cut across it. Not higher (looks old), not lower (looks sloppy), but smack through the middle. 
It creates a shorter torso and a longer leg line, explains London,which makes you look taller and leaner. The same logic applies to shirts. Instead of letting them hang around your thighs, keep them at the top of your hips (or higher) to preserve a slimming leg line.

ACCESSORIZE TO YOUR ASSETS
If you're not happy with your bottom half, don't wear bold bracelets that call attention to it when your arms are down. Instead, wear a bold necklace or earrings that draw the focus upward.

STILETTOS
High heels with pants give you amazing length and sleekness in your legs. Sandals and pumps with 2 1/2 to more than 3 inch heels will do the trick.


PANTSUIT
Dressing in all one color is a sure-fire flatterer. Choose longer jackets to hide larger bottoms; add a sexier cami or blouse to soften the look and draw attention to the face.

OVERSIZED HANDBAG
Sounds too good to be true, but proportion can play tricks on the eye. Choose a shape that flatters (square shapes complement a rounder figure) and a strap length that doesn't land in a problem area (don't let the bottom of the purse rest on full hips).
