Whether you are petite, a girl with an average figure or a curvaceous woman, you probably want to know how to get that waistline which makes everyone gone WOW! And getting there without going on a diet or hitting the gym seems like the perfect idea! Ladies, we make life easier for you - we bring to you a multitude of tricks to get that small-looking waistline at home by just dressing right! Read on to find out about all the fashionable options available to help you fake an hourglass shape without much effort!
1. Belt Up Right
The best way to create that hourglass silhouette is by wearing the right kind of belt with that dress! It not only highlights the narrowest part of the waist but also accentuates the lines of your body! Make sure you go for thinner belts and stay away from broader ones as they attract a bit too much attention to the waist then!
2. Built-In Cinch Waist
The elastic that sits right at the upper waist in the garment itself makes your frame look smaller as there are no add ons! A built-in one is more effective as it creates vertical body lines and doesn’t make anything stand out in an obvious way! Try a jumpsuit or a dress to see the wonders it does!
3. Cutout Dresses
Focus your attention to the smallest part of your waist by wearing cutout dresses! Contrary to what we may think, a bit of cut out at the center of the waist can actually emphasizes on your body curves and makes you look slimmer.
4. Tuck In That Top
Unlike what you believed, tucking in that blouse gives a more polished and flattering look, so go ahead and don’t be shy about wearing your favorite shirt or that top with culottes or skirt all tucked in. Make sure it billows out a bit and is not completely inside. This is the key to getting a neater look for formal wear as well!
5. High-Waisted Pants
To hide that tummy or to cut your torso at a point that make your legs look longer, high-waisted pants are the perfect pick. These pieces sit at the right spot and make your waist look smaller. They are also super trendy, so that’s another bonus. Make sure the fitting is right so that it doesn't land up looking frumpy! Add heels to elongate your appearance!
6. Interesting Details At The Waistline
We would think that taking away all the focus from the waist is the best way to make your waist look slimmer, but not really! Having some interesting embellishment or wrap detail around your waist can actually make it look slimmer as people tend to look at the details and not the width of the waist! Don’t be scared to pick up something that has this feature!
7. Colour Blocked Dress
The magic of a colour blocked dress is phenomenal! Get one that is panelled and has black on the outsides. Most of our favorite curvy celebrities opt for this kind of a dress to show off their curves at the right places and take away focus from the waist! Create that envious figure now.
8. Shapewear To The Rescue
Wearing the right kind of shapewear can easily give the illusion of a tinier mid section, and opting for a perfect tummy tucker or slimmer can define your waist in the best way possible! Need we say more about this ultimate saviour?
9. Different Types of Silhouettes
Peplum skirts, pinstripe pants, high ruffle necks, wraparound dresses, crop jackets are the other options that you need to stock up to walk out in style every time! Incorporating these new silhouettes can re-define your style game and you will never have to worry about that waistline - or stress over going on a diet either!
10. Draw Attention Everywhere Else
As clear as this can be! Concentrate on other areas if you want to create the impression of a trimmer midsection, Go for a statement bracelet or necklace or any other style element on other aspects of your outfit. Try a heavily collared shirt or an exaggerated cuff sweater. Even go for a bold pair of earrings! And stay away from a wide waist belt for sure!
