How To Wear Clothes To Look Thinner 
  • Choose the right fabric. Quite often, if you are not thin, bulky fabrics will make you look worse. Avoid puffy jackets, heavy wools, sweatshirts, or anything else that will add to your dimensions. Go for thin and fitted fabrics, which can hold their shape.
  • Wear clothes that fit properly. Wearing loose or shabby clothes will make you look bulkier, apart from being shabby. Well cut clothes will make you look as though you have lost weight. Well cut clothes are not the same as tight clothes. Tight clothes will cling to your excess fat and make the layers of flesh more visible. Therefore, ensure that the clothes are cut comfortably.
  • Choose the right colors. Darker colors, especially black, can make you look thinner. However, do not fill up your wardrobe with black clothes, such that it looks like, one belonging to a professional mourner. You can continue to wear the colors that you like. Just be sure to choose deeper variations of the same color.
  • Have fun with the right patterns. Do not go in for outrageous patterns, if you have a bulky waist or a bulky anything. Choose simple, classic patters, so that it doesn’t add girth to any part of you.
  • Stripes can flatter the way you look – if they are chosen well. You need to be clear about when and how to use stripes. Never wear horizontal stripes, since these make a person look bulkier. Vertical stripes can make you look, thinner and taller. You can give the illusion of having an hourglass figure by alternating stripes such that horizontal stripes are at your chest and hips and the rest are vertical stripes. However, never opt for this, if you already are bulky around the chest and hips.
  • Don’t wear hip hugger jeans if you have spare tires on your hips and a stomach that sags like a sack of flour! While hip huggers are in fashion, it is better to go in for a pair of jeans that makes you look good instead of embarrassing you. Choose a dark pair with a mid rise waist, with embroidery along the sides. This will make your thighs look slimmer and will keep all that loose fat, compactly in place until you succeed in getting rid of it.
  • Corsets might be out of fashion, but there are various inner garments that will compress flab and make your body look firmer and thinner. Just be sure that you do not get anything too tight, since you would not want to stop your blood circulation!
