Sometimes, you have to wear your clothes strategically so that you can use them to your advantage. Emphasizing or minimizing certain parts of your figure can make you more confident in your outfit, and a variety of methods can be used to achieve this. Here’s a small guide on what clothing to wear to flatter your form and make you look stylish and fashionable!
1. Dark Jeans
If you're someone who has a bit more bulk around your stomach, try wearing dark jeans! When you compare them to lighter jeans, dark jeans automatically make you look slimmer as they hide your outline. Additionally, wearing high-rise jeans can make you look neater and more secure, and flared jeans can make you look 5 inches taller!
2. Cinch your waist
For those with a skinnier body, it can be difficult to wear dresses without it completely enveloping you. Instead, try this easy technique of adding a statement belt, such as this pre loved Louis Vuitton, to flatter your shape. It’ll cinch up your waist and make it slightly more hourglass-like. Here at Secret Stash, we have a wide array of gently used dresses that are bound to make you look your best!
3. Solid colours
Wearing solid colours will hide parts of your body that you don’t want any focus on, in a similar way to dark jeans. If you want to highlight your legs, then wearing patterned pants will help make them stand out. Otherwise, stick to single colours. The advantage of this is being able to wear bold accessories and experiment with different colour palettes.
To elongate your upper buddy, strengthen your shoulder line, and minimize your bust, try a v-neck. It’ll help make your outfit look more put-together. As an added bonus, wear a long necklace to complete the look. It’ll cover up any spaces and add length to your figure.

Additionally, wearing a similar tone of pants to match your heels will further give the illusion of looking taller and sleeker.
