Many people struggle with their waistline but, let’s face it, nobody really wants to hit the gym. Even if you do, belly fat is one of the hardest things to reduce which can make you lose hope in the process. Luckily, there are ways you can get an enviable waistline without going to the gym (though this is highly recommended). Here are some hacks to make your waist look smaller.
Vertical stripes create an illusion of a slimmer, elongated frame thus reducing the appearance of any bulges. You can create vertical lines by wearing striped clothes or draping a scarf down to your waist area. Deep V-necks also go hand in hand with vertical stripes to help you achieve a slimmer look. You should avoid horizontal lines if you want to make your waist look smaller as they tend to create a wider appearance.
Highlight Other Features
Maybe a Kim Kardashian-like waist isn’t your strong suit. However, you can still create an illusion of a smaller waist by diverting attention to other areas. Make a fashion statement with bold accessories or chic outfits that will have all eyes on you. You can also wear clothes that show off your best features. For instance, wearing an off-shoulder dress will draw attention upwards thus reducing the focus on your mid-region. 8 Simple Ways To Channel Your Inner Diva With Accessories
Invest In Belts
Belts make a significant difference to an outfit not only in style but also it gives it shape. It also helps your tummy appear flatter. When you’re trying to slim your waist using a belt, go for a chunkier one as they’re better at hiding the tummy. Additionally, you should only wear belts with free-flowing dresses and tops to maintain a flattering figure.
Avoid Clingy Materials
Sure, stretchy clothes are comfortable but they also bring out the love handles and bulging tummy. For this reason, they may not be the best choice if you have some extra weight around the waist area. Try to wear clothes made of firmer and thicker materials such as cotton since they tend to shape your body better. You can also wear oversized tops like hoodies and t-shirts with leggings or a fitting skirt.
