Women who have a larger figure and want to look slimmer can easily knock off a few kilos instantly and appear slimmer by following a few simple guidelines.

If you want to look slimmer quickly, then simply follow the seven steps below in your choice of clothes.

1. Wear clothes that fit

Don't delude yourself and try and squeeze into a size smaller than you really are.

It won't make you look slimmer and will have the opposite affect.

The reverse is also true, if you buy clothes that are too big. Baggy clothing will make you seem bigger than you really are as well as giving you a sloppy appearance.

The important point to remember is clothing needs to fit well in order to make you look slimmer.

2. Colors to choose

Black is the most popular color and around 60% of the clothes sold in the UK are in this color. Its popular as it makes you look slimmer and this is true of all dark colors.

Darker colors are always give a slimmer look than lighter, pale colors simply because they absorb the light. Dark grays, olives, browns, burgundies, in fact any autumnal colors will work well.

The other point to keep in mind when trying to look slimmer with colors, is don't wear to many colors 2 or 3 is fine.

Also, if you have one main color for the whole outfit you will emphasize length giving a slimmer look.

For example, Don't wear a different color jacket to your skirt, keep them the same color.

3. Patterns

Keep away from horizontal stripes!

This will mean people will look across your body, where to appear slimmer you need them to top to bottom, which makes you appear slimmer.

There may be times where you need to wear say a pinstripe suit for business.

If you do then go for thinner the stripes, which will make you look slimmer. Vertical stripes will draw attention from the top to the bottom of the body, which is your overall aim.

Keep away from patterns as much as possible the better the result in terms of creating a slim look. If you fancy wearing patterns keep them small rather than large but really their best avoided

4. Fabrics

Shiny fabrics should be avoided, as should thick fabrics. Thinner, matt fabrics are generally more slimming and absorb rather reflect light, making you stand out less and appear thinner.

Stretch fabrics such as Lycra, should also be avoided, any fabric that hugs your body to tightly, will do you know favors at all.

5. Styles

Length is one of key ways of making you look slimmer.

Long jackets should be single breasted as opposed to double breasted so to not emphasize width.

Longer length skirts are best when they are straight and not flared, as flared skirts give a bulky feel to any outfit.

6. Accessorizes

Accessories are a great way of diverting the eye away from areas you don't wish to stress.

Necklaces, bangles, and earrings should be coordinated with nail varnish and lipstick will divert eyes away from areas you don't want people to notice.

Accessories such as belts, chokers broaches should be not be used, as they draw the eyes to areas you do not want people to notice.

For example, a belt looks best on women who have small waists and wish to show off this area as an asset.

The reverse is true if your waist is a problem area. A belt acts as a horizontal dividing line, and you want to really give an overall impression of height, which means not cutting your clothes in two.

7. Shoes

A pair of high heels is preferable to flat shoes, as will again give the overall impression of length and hence detract away from width.

The above simple guidelines will make anyone appear slimmer and present a better overall image.
