Well, thank the gods for the fashion industry, right? With all the various styles and cuts available nowadays, it's easy to transform and make ourselves look more toned than we really are.

A nude pointed toe heel is excellent for making your legs and body appear longer; hence, you’ll look taller when wearing it, and who wouldn’t want that? Take note, though, to always break in your heels before going to an important event so they’re more flexible and won’t pinch your feet the entire day or night.

Go monochrome

Whether you’re opting for black or white, bright or pastel, sporting a monochromatic ensemble will easily turn you into a slimmer goddess. How? The one colour creates an uninterrupted vertical line, elongating and stretching out your figure.

Maxi skirts are famous for making women look slimmer. Choose a simple one that skims the length of your body to create a vertical line, opt for a fitted top and a pair of heels, and you will be good to go.

Invest in the right bra

According to science, about 80 per cent of women are wearing the wrong type of underwear. So go out, get properly measured, and buy the right size of bra. A proper one will make you leaner because it will give you the right amount of space between your breasts and waistline.

Try vertical stripes
