We love to dress for our body shape but here's some more quick tips for helping us look just a little bit slender in our clothes for those who want to know!
1. MATCH YOUR SEPARATES
Lose 5 kilos by just matching your pants or skirt, stockings and shoes. Whether it's all black or white. Is the one-colour thing too tame for your taste? Slip on a pair of bright shoes to shake things up.
Full, round shapes on top and bottom will make you look…full and round. So always accentuate your smallest part by pairing your more generously cut pieces with a snugger mate. Balance a wide leg pants with a fitted shirt, a miniskirt with a longer top, etc.
3. CHOOSE SHAPELY SKIRTS
The tailored cut of a pencil skirt (we love that it's not skin tight through the hips) makes all bodies look sleek.
4. SLIP ON A LONG CARDIGAN OR LIGHT OPEN KAFTAN
Waist-length cardigans tend to shorten your body while long, hip-grazing versions make torsos seem long.
5. DRESS UP JEANS AND TUCK IN THE SHIRT
Ever wonder why you see this look again and again on celebs, in ads, in magazines? Because if done right, it makes every woman look longer and leaner. Most flattering: straight-leg or boot-cut jeans...
6. GRAPHIC PRINTS
Busy patterns can camouflage problem areas by forcing the eye to rove instead of honing in on one spot. A little secret to help you get it right is to remember that the taller you are, the bigger prints you can wear. Petite ladies should take special precaution and stick to smaller patterns (like small polka dots as opposed to oversized ones), which are more flattering and won't make you look like your small stature is being consumed
7. WIDE-LEG PANTS WITH PUMPS
I am a huge fan of these as I always feel that the soft floatiness gives me a slimmer look than I am. When you pair wide leg pants with platforms or pumps it creates the illusion of added height and legs since you can’t see the shoe. Fit is the key of this style, the pants should gently graze the floor break in the front so you just Be see the tip of the shoe. Team with a more fitted top to create balance
Shapewear definitely tames those lumps and bumps and helps redefine those curves. We have beautiful smoothing and shaping garments depending on the firmness you like. See this BLOG to find out which style would suit your body best

9. V NECK OR ROUND NECK
Depending on your bust and shoulder size generally, a V neck tends to bring the eye to the centre and elongate that top front area. If you are small busted with petite shoulders then best a round or boatneck will actually bulk up the area slightly
