10 TIPS ON HOW TO DRESS TALLER AND SLIMMER:
1.) WEAR FLOOR SKIMMING HEM LINES:
Anything that hits the floor or a little bit above will make you look taller and slimmer because you can wear a pair of huge platforms and no one would ever notice your shoes! I love this travel-friendly gorgeous blue maxi dress – it’s incredibly comfortable and chic.

2.) WEAR A NECK STACK:
Anytime you wear something layered on your neck, it will draw the eye up and elongate your body. I love this beautiful gold chain necklace set that’s adjustable! It can go from day to night and can be worn with any outfit you wear. This necklace set is only $115 which is an amazing price for 3 gold necklaces!
3.) HIGH-WAISTED DENIM – ALWAYS:
Definitely ALWAYS choose high-waist over low or mid-rise denim! High rise denim holds everything in which is amazing and a major reason why I recommend this style. I am obsessed with high rise denim and it’s all I ever wear!
I love these amazing high-waisted jeans from Abercombie- they make incredible denim that look like high-end denim but are extremely affordable. The best part these super cool jeans are on sale making them under $50! They run true to size, I’m wearing a size 25 regular.
4.) WEAR A NUDE HEEL:
Wearing a neutral shoe that matches your skin tone will make the leg look longer since it blends right in! I love these nude pumps by Sam Edelman because they’re flattering and easy to wear with a variety of outfits. Nude heels are a definite wardrobe staple that every woman needs in their collection!

5.) WEAR ALL BLACK:
All black is always slimming and will never go out of style! This monochromatic look will definitely make you look tall and slim because it’s solid and flattering. I try to stay away from big patterns because solids are more flattering.
6.) ALWAYS TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT:
I love tucking in my shirt or doing a half-tuck because it accentuates the waist and makes you look slimmer! Even if your waist isn’t your favorite part of your body, half tucking your shirt with a belt is so flattering! Adding a cropped jacket also gives the illusion of a slimmer body! When you’re wearing a bodysuit like this one from Abercrombie, you’re already wearing a tucked look so it’s easy and effortless.
SHOP THE LOOK (DRESS IS ON SALE):
7.) ALWAYS OPT FOR A MIDI LENGTH DRESS OR SKIRT:
Wearing dresses that hit below the knee is more of an elongated effect. Since the knee is the fastest aging part of every woman’s body, it will also make you look younger. I love this black and white dress by Frame – the large stripes make it super slimming. Come fall and winter, drape a black or leather jacket over it and it’s gorgeous! The best part, this super slimming dress is on major sale! It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.

8.) ADD A THIRD LAYER:
Layering your outfit with a jacket or sweater will take your look up a notch while making you look taller and slimmer. There are so many jackets you can choose from. This faux shearling jacket might seem like an investment, but it’s an amazing price for a jacket this good. It’s perfect for any fall or winter occasion and I know I’ll be wearing it on repeat this coming season. It runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.

9.) WEAR A V-NECK:
As opposed to a crew neck that comes up high, I recommend wearing a v-neck because they’re more flattering! Since the v-neck goes down and shows the neck and shoulders, it’s way better to opt for this kind of neckline! I love this linen-blend top that I got it in two colors, it’s such a great staple. I will have these two items in my closet for many years to come!

10.) WEAR A PAPER-BAG WAIST PANT:
This style will definitely make you look thinner and taller because a paper bag waist is going to hit you on the highest part of your waist which is also the thinnest. This look is gorgeous and comfortable to wear year-round! To winterize this look, add a turtleneck or black booties.
These pants will transition so well into fall and winter! These slimming pants run true to size, I’m wearing a size 2. If these are out of your budget no worries, I found these from Express that are super similar but a fraction of the price.
