    If you want your legs to look longer and your body to look slimmer, you should wear shoes of similar shade to your skin. White, beige or brown, depending on your complexion, will optically take away a few kilos. If you wear trousers or pantyhose, then match your shoes to their colour – the effect will be similar. Avoid striped footwear and buckets near the ankle – they make your leg look shorter.

    #2 Put on shapewear

    To quickly and impressively smoothen any imperfections, put on slimming underwear under your fancy dress. It can be worn under almost anything. It’s helpful for overweight women, as well as women who have just delivered a baby or still struggle with excess skin after intensive slimming. Remember, however, that shapewear must not be worn too often. You’d better put it on only for special occasions.

    Scarves and turtle necks make you look bigger. If you are into shawls, don’t tight them too close to your neck. A lock necklace will be a much better choice as it will lengthen your neck and make your silhouette lighter.

    The best thing to do is to have your hair styled. An expert will advise you on what matches your face and your kind of hair. You can’t follow current fashions blindly. The thing is that straight long hair or a fringe don’t suit everyone. Plump women look better with hair cut shorter, falling on the face, giving them a lighter look.
