Going for a skinny & taller look? Try these 5 quick & easy fashion hacks...

I’m a sucker for fashion hacks and tips. And when it comes to how to look skinner and taller without scarifying my favourite dessert items, I’m all ears. 

Not only these following 5 tips are quick and easy to follow, but they also work for pretty much all body shapes, especially those with apple and pear shape - simply because they make so much fashion senses.  


1/ Tuck your top in 

The art of tucking your shirt in has been around for so long, however, for some mysterious reasons, I feel like not enough people know about it. It works wonder when you want to look slimmer. You can experiment with a French Tuck, Half Tuck or a Full Tuck to see which works for your body.

To do a French Tuck, you basically tuck the front of your top in and leave the side and back of it hanging out. The Full Tuck is pretty self-explanatory: you tuck the whole thing in. And the Half Tuck is best done with a button-down shirt where you tuck half in and leave half out 

How does tucking make you look skinnier? Number 1: Using depth perception, it looks like you have a flat stomach. Number 2: it divides your body proportion in a way that makes your legs look longer and your torso shorter. And who doesn’t want to have longer legs? Right?

2/ Wear cinched waist tops/ dresses

Look for tops and dresses that cinch at waists such as peplum tops or dresses. They help define your natural waistline in the most flattering way possible. Using a belt to cinch your waist could do the same trick, too. If you have some extra pounds around the tummy, wearing this kind of tops/ dresses help hide it very effectively

3/Know your colours

 This one is an oldie but a goodie. It is scientifically proven that wearing a darker shade of colours such as blue, purple, brown and black can help you hide flaws and create a slimming illusion. On the contrary, the lighter shade of colours like white and khaki can give the illusion of a larger frame.

4/ Crop top and high waisted bottoms 

Crop top and high waisted bottoms are a fashion match made in heaven. A crop top balances out the high waist of the bottoms and makes your legs look longer and ultimately adds at least a few cms to the illusion of your height.

5/ Don’t be afraid to wear maxi skirts

A lot of curvy women are scared of wearing floor-grazing skirts and dresses. A well-cut maxi skirt can actually give you the appearance of looking longer and leaner. You just have to the right shape and fabric. Choose a solid version that skims the length of your body, that creates a long, vertical line. Stay away from skirts that have pleats, pockets or too many layers. Keep your top fitted with a tucked-in T-shirt or a well-cut blouse. Also, keep your jacket cropped as well.
