3 Ways to Look Slimmer in Your Clothes

I believe that women should be confident in how they look.  We should love our bodies and flaunt them with pride!  However, if you want to give your clothing confidence a boost, there are a few little tricks that can help you look slimmer in clothes and give a more flattering silhouette.  Here are my 3 favorite ways to look slimmer and feel more confident in your clothes:


One // Half Tuck

If you have been following Lyla Taylor Boutique for any length of time you know I am a huge fan of the half tuck.  It gives your clothes a more of a tailored look, while the tuck gives your shirts a little flow and and some forgiveness for lumps and bumps.  Paired especially with our Leopard Belt (which I think goes with everything) it gives your outfit an extra added pop.

Two //  Play Up Your Biggest Feature

Sometimes women try to “hide” an area of their body that they are uncomfortable with by wearing large or flowy items, but doing that can actually make that area appear bigger.  If you have big boobs, wear a more structured shirt.  If you are more curvy on the lower half, wear clothing that accents it.  For example, I have a pear shape body and very curvy hips.  To play up my features I wear tighter bottoms and more flowy shirts.  I want to encourage you to start embracing that part of your body and love it, because we can’t change our body types. We can only learn to love them and work with it.  


Three: Tie Front Tops

Some women shy away from tie front shirts because they believe it adds bulk. But the right shirt, such as our Wine Down Burgundy Tie Front Waffle Shirt, can help draw your eyes away from those insecurities and hide them.

Remember ladies, we should be proud of our bodies and learn to dress them so that we feel confident.  We may not be able to change our bodies, but we can learn to embrace them and dress them in a way that makes us feel amazing.  Confidence is the best thing a woman can wear.
