Losing weight is not something you can do overnight. It takes a lot of time and effort to appear and become your ideal size. Nevertheless there are tricks that you can adopt to make you look slimmer than you really are. Incorporate these fashion tips next time you pick an outfit.

1. Keep everything under wrap.

Choosing the right underwear helps in keeping everything in place. Make sure your bra is the correct size and fit not only to give you that proper support but  accentuate your natural gifts. Also give body shapers and hosiery a go to keep those tummy rolls in check.

2. Use the magic of Line & Color.

Clothing with thin to medium vertical stripes that are closely placed together have been long used to create the illusion of height. It also proves to make one appear slimmer. Dark colors have a similar effect. One trick is to wear dark skirt or pants with a lighter colored blouse. But do keep color contrast limited lest the look gets confusing.

3. Observe proper proportion.

People naturally tend to wear loose clothing and even a size larger than what they actually are in the hopes of hiding those problem spots. But this practice will only make you look larger. So always choose your right size and compliment it with proper underwear or body shapers mentioned in tip number 1. Also stay away from heavy fabric as they add weight, literally and figuratively. Select your accessories wisely too as holding a tiny bag will make you look bigger as it is not in proportion to you. The same goes for brooches and jewelry.

4. Make the shoe fit.

Many tend to forget that everything from top to toe matter in creating the perfect illusion. And a great pair of shoes to suit your outfit can create wonders. Avoid chunky and rounded toe styles and instead opt for heeled pairs with a thin sole and pointed toe. Of course make sure your toes aren’t sticking out. The more of your feet you show, the longer your legs will look as a line is visually created. Ankle straps and flat shoes are therefore not the best.

5. Smile and Pose.

Feel happy and confident or at least try to. A good posture makes a lot of difference and so does a contagious smile as you attract attention to your face rather than your body. Keep your back straight to make you taller and let your outfit drape on you properly. You may be wearing the correct style of clothing but if you look tired and unhappy then the illusion is shattered. Raise your face a little for photographs to hide double chin.

So there you go!  Keep the illusion going while you are still waiting on those pounds to melt away.
