With the holiday season here, everyone wants to look their finest. Did you know that you can look 10 pounds lighter without actually bringing the number down on the weight scale? Looking slim is all about dressing slim. You can easily create the optical illusion of a slender figure by taking the cuts and shapes of dresses and accessories, and using it to take away the attention from your “problem areas”.
By using the right accessories, you can effortlessly look 5- 10 pounds slimmer.
In this article we will look at how to visually melt away those pounds by using some copper accessory tricks.
1. Accessorize according to your body size
When it comes to accessorizing to look leaner than you actually are, the rule of thumb is to strategically use jewelry to bring forth your best features while taking away the attention from areas that contain the most weight.
For example, if you have a pear shaped body type, then your job is to choose accessories that will avert the attention away from your wide hips and thighs. Here are some pieces that work great for a pear shaped body:
Accessories like heavy earrings, chunky bangles, bracelets and long necklaces will do this trick.
On the other hand, if you have an apple shaped figure, then you need to choose pieces that will divert attention away from your mid section up to your neck, face and bust line. Short necklaces, bracelets and embellished earrings will help with this. To showcase your long legs, anklets can be used as well.
2. Wear chunky earrings
Most women carry the majority of the weight in their mid section, arms, hips and thighs.
Wearing chunky and flashy drop earrings will slim down your face and enhance your cheekbones. They can also help with de emphasizing big ears.
3. Wear chunky cuff
Thick wrists can be easily downplayed by big and chunky cuffs. If, on the other hand, your wrist is not one of your problem areas, opt for slender bracelets because big bracelets can look too heavy against small wrists.
4. Accessorize With Long Necklaces
Long necklaces do a great job at creating a long and slender neckline, while keeping the viewer’s gaze above the midsection. It will also emphasize a slender shoulder, showcasing the collar bones. That said, pairing long necklaces with dangling earring should be avoided. With a long chain necklaces, opt for short flashy earrings. This will create a more balanced look.
5. Wear Statement Rings
Cocktails rings work great at giving an illusion of long and slender fingers. On the other hand, if you would like to turn the attention away from your fingers, choose beautiful and elegant ring. Just keep in mind to not pick a huge ring that will overpower your hands.
6. Opt for one statement piece
One, strategically placed, statement jewelry is enough to make you look slimmer. Accessorizing with too many flashy pieces makes for a shabby outfit. Opt for a statement piece that will bring out the best feature of your body, and keep the rest of your jewelry simple and understated.
