Here’s how to add a few time-tested fashion and beauty tips to dress 10 pounds lighter and thinner.
Stand tall with proper posture to dress thin

Favor monochromatic dressing
Dressing in one color, from head-to-toe is a visual trick that stylists use to elongate their celebrity client’s body. In fact, by dressing in one color (the darker the better) or in varying shades of the same hue, you’ll whittle your waist and create a slenderizing wardrobe effect.
If you are afraid of looking morose in all black or too saintly in all white clothing, use your designer handbag, jewelry and scarves to break up the monotony of one color.
Follow proportion and balance rules to dress thin fast
If you want to dress 10 pounds thinner, you must adhere to any shape-shifting clothing touches that will help you look long and lean.
For example: if you are wearing a large flowing top, wear skinny jeans and high heels to balance your curves and make you look taller. Or select a top with bell sleeves. The extra fabric in your top will flatter full arms and hide any flab instantly.
Avoid anything that is too tight, too short, too big and adds bulk to your tummy, hips, breasts, shoulders and neck. Choose a flat-front, no pleat pair of pants without pockets to glide smoothly across your body.
A tailored jacket or a long body-skimming cardigan is your new best fashion friend
A jacket fitted at the waist gives the same effect of an empire dress; the jacket gives the illusion of a small waist, even if one does not exist.
A 3/4 length cardigan sweater creates a long and lean effect on your body. Also, if you have a large bottom, refrain from selecting jackets that stop just above your hips.
Choose the right handbag size
A petite woman should eliminate any large tote bags and bowling-ball carrying purses that overwhelm her small frame.
A large slouchy hobo—worn over the shoulder– can add pounds that my instant-weight loss tips can’t reduce. The best skinny-enhancing handbags are clutches, frame bags and small totes.
