I am showing two ways to make you appear taller and thinner today, it’s all about the eye and how our minds work. The longer length of the shacket I am styling today will give the illusion of height and a slimming effect. Remember that long lines (vertical), such as long dusters and cardigans will elongate your look and give the illusion of height and take off about 10 lbs.! Solid neutrals worn together, such as an all-black, tan, or white/beige outfit will elongate your body as well. Keep your color palette in the same range to achieve the look. For example: choose an outfit with different shades of blacks and grays, or browns, tans, and beiges.
This shacket is so stinking cute! I love the shacket trend, and boy is it trending right now, but I have not tried the longer shacket, so I dived right in! I was unsure of how I would like this, but I fell in love the first time I tried it on. I noticed how slimming it was right off, and that’s when I decided to share these tips with you girls. This shacket runs a bit big, so I would size down in it. It also comes in more color options, see the shacket here. I styled it with the Spanx Faux Leather Joggers, but they are a bit expensive, so I added an alternative option that is much more affordable below the picture.
Here is how I wore the shacket this week! I decided to style it with navy girlfriend chinos and booties for a cute dressier but casual look. I love the chinos with this shacket and can’t wait to try it with cropped jeans and leggings! The girlfriend chinos fit TTS and come in more color options, see them here.
This shacket is a bit longer, so I thought I would show it from the side. This style is trending and looks very cute with heels, but can be worn with sneakers and leggings also for a cute casual weekend look.
Another way to have a longer and leaner look is to try a long tunic or sweater. Be sure to keep the color of your top darker if you are wearing darker pants or jeans, it will give a long linear line that will make you appear longer. I chose to give this oversized sweater vest a try with the joggers. Notice the darker colors elongate the look, and the lighter sweater underneath the vest gives it just a pop, but still gives me a slimming look. This vest is oversized and runs big, so I sized down to a medium. For some, this could be a cute dress with boots, but I am too tall (5’7″) for that look. This vest comes in multiple color options and is a Best Seller with Amazon. See the vest here.
