This article is the second instalment of my earlier post "How To Dress thinner, The French Woman's way", which you can read here.
We discovered five ways to look thinner with the help of your clothes, that French women
use "au quotidien", daily. Now let's have a look at four more.
I cannot encourage you enough to get measured for a bra, one that will fit you in all the right places. A well-fitting bra will lift your bust and make you look slender. Your torso will look longer. Bulges under your old bra will disappear. You will look thinner, I promise you!
French women have long known that a scarf can transform any outfit from blah to wow. The versatility of a scarf can no longer be ignored and this is why it is featured here. Wear a scarf lengthways to create a vertical column at the front of your body. This will trick the eye to believe you are taller and slimmer than you are. Et voilà!
Another 'très simple' way to elongate and slim down your upper body is by wearing long necklaces and pendants. This works by creating a long V, as per the image below. You can either wear them singly, as a set of different styles or various lengths of the same style.
Double-breasted jackets do not suit everybody. This is a fact worth remembering.
However, take the single-breasted blazer. In a simple cut, good quality and classic colour, it can last you for years and years. The single-breasted style flatters you by creating a lean silhouette. The tapered sides create a smaller waist and the single button-style elongate your upper body. No woman can be without this timeless piece!
And that is it. I hope this post was helpful to you. Please join us again on this blog for more style tips and advice.
