  • - Look slimmer right away with these 10 tricks.
  • (upbeat music)
  • Hi ladies, it's Erin, and welcome back to my channel.
  • If you're new to my channel, hi, welcome.
  • I do upload two new videos every week
  • every Wednesday and Sunday, so I hope
  • you will hit that subscribe button.
  • Stick around so you can see more videos
  • just like this one.
  • Today, I'm sharing 10 tips, 10 style tricks
  • to help you look instantly slimmer, and they all work.
  • Before I dive into those 10 tips, I wanna say
  • that there is no reason why any of us
  • need to look slimmer.
  • Own your body, own your curvy body, own your curves.
  • All of that is beautiful, every size is beautiful,
  • every type is beautiful.
  • I am merely offering suggestions
  • so that if you are interested in one day
  • trying to look a little slimmer or a little taller,
  • these tips can really make a difference
  • if that's what you want.
  • And I'm doing some before and afters,
  • but all of the clothes that you will see are my clothes.
  • I wear them all, so there's nothing wrong with the before.
  • I'm just trying to show you an example of a before
  • and and after so you can see well jeez,
  • if it makes an impact with me,
  • it's definitely gonna make an impact with you
  • regardless of what size you are.
  • I'm a five foot, four inch woman.
  • I'm a petite woman, and I'm 115 pounds.
  • So, I'm not overweight, I'm not a big person.
  • I'm a slim person.
  • I don't have any reason or need to look slimmer,
  • but I wanted to show you these tricks
  • so that you can use them if you want to,
  • if you feel you need to,
  • if it makes you feel more confident because my goal,
  • again, is to help you look good and feel good.
  • So, that's enough rambling, enough disclaimers.
  • Let's get to the video.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The first way and probably one of the most powerful ways
  • that you can look slimmer instantly
  • is to wear dark wash jeans.
  • Here's an example of me wearing a lighter wash jeans,
  • which again, I love, I have them, I own them,
  • but the light wash jeans don't make you
  • look quite as slim and tall a the dark wash jeans.
  • So, if that is the goal, definitely go
  • with the dark wash jean,
  • and the darker, the better,
  • and also, the less whiskering,
  • fading, and distressing, the better.
  • That will elongate you even more.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The second way to dress yourself slimmer
  • is to wear high-rise jeans.
  • I wanna show you an example of me wearing
  • a lower rise jean.
  • They're really between a low and a mid
  • and a high-rise jean.
  • So, you can see with the lower rise jean
  • that even though I don't have much of a tummy,
  • there's a little bit of skin that hangs over,
  • and so what that creates is if you're wearing something
  • fitted it created a little bit of bulk
  • and a lump around the waistband.
  • So, it's not smooth.
  • If you're going to wear something fitted on the top,
  • I highly recommend wearing something
  • with a higher rise 'cause that will make everything
  • look neater, and tighter,
  • and no lumps and bumps will show.
  • It's smoother, and it's just gonna make you
  • feel more secure 'cause it's all
  • (slurping)
  • sucked in there, you know what I mean?
  • So, even if you don't have a tummy
  • you could be like me with all that loose baby skin
  • and a tiny tummy, it just looks neater and smoother
  • on your clothes.
  • And just personally, I feel so much better
  • with a higher rise jean.
  • So, when you're looking at jeans and you're like,
  • well, which jean has a high rise?
  • 'Cause it doesn't always say.
  • Sometimes you can delineate by high rise,
  • but what I look for is at least
  • a nine-inch inseam and nine-inch rise.
  • That's high rise.
  • Anything from nine to 10, 10 and a half, super high.
  • Good, belly button high.
  • (laughing) That's what you want.
  • (upbeat music)
  • My next tip is to cinch it!
  • By cinching it, I mean accentuating your waist.
  • When you wear something that is all over volume
  • like this dress, it's a really pretty dress.
  • It just isn't that flattering.
  • It just sorta swims on me, it doesn't look great,
  • it sorta hangs.
  • I can see this looking really cool on the beach
  • with flat sandals, and your hair is back,
  • just really easy breezy, but if I really wanna look slimmer
  • and create more of that hourglass shape
  • that we all covet and want, adding a belt is something
  • really simple that I can do to cinch that dress.
  • Take in some of that fabric,
  • highlight a tinier part of my body,
  • and make it so much more flattering,
  • figure flattering, and slimming.
  • And it's just a belt.
  • It's so simple!
  • (upbeat music)
  • Next, I wanna talk about the power of the flare jeans,
  • the wide-leg jeans, the fit and flare jeans,
  • whatever you wanna call them.
  • They will make you look like you are five inches taller,
  • and you're longer, and you're slimmer.
  • They are a magic trick basically,
  • visual magic trick.
  • I love them and I know that we've been
  • in the skinny zone with jeans for a long time.
  • Flares, wide legs are definitely making a comeback.
  • I'm seeing them more and more.
  • I think it's a slow build, but it's there.
  • So, if you wanna wear them, have at it.
  • Very modern and very figure flattering,
  • very elongating, very slimming.
  • So, here is a pair by Veronica Beard that I'm wearing
  • that I absolutely am in love with.
  • I think they are so gorgeous and so flattering.
  • But you an see the difference between that long,
  • wide leg, fit and flare jean
  • versus just a regular skinny jean.
  • It definitely makes a big impact in terms
  • of making your legs look so much longer.
  • And when you throw on a wedge under those flare jeans,
  • wow, legs for days.
  • So, if you wanna create that long,
  • lean, slim, trim look, definitely a fit and flare jean
  • is your friend for sure.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The next trick to help you look slimmer,
  • longer, taller is to wear heels.
  • This is like ooh, whoa, no brainer, right?
  • But it's one of those things that's worth repeating,
  • and I'm gonna show you how dramatic it really can be.
  • So, here's an example of me on one side
  • wearing just a really cute pointed-toe flat.
  • There's nothing wrong with these shoes, they're adorable.
  • And then on the other side, a pointed toe, black pump.
  • I look much longer and taller
  • with the pointed toe, black pump instead of the flat.
  • I feel like that effect is exaggerated even more
  • when you wear skirts and dresses.
  • (upbeat music)
  • Along those lines, another tip I wanted to share
  • with you guys is to wear pointed-toe shoes.
  • The pointed toe, the shape of that toe,
  • creates the illusion of more length,
  • taller, longer, slimmer.
  • And then when you pair that with a similar
  • color tone pant or a similar color tone skirt, dress,
  • you're gonna look incredibly tall, and long, and slim.
  • So, don't forget about the power not only of heels,
  • but of the pointed-toe pumps
  • and the pointed-toe heels.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The next tip I wanna share with you guys is about prints.
  • Wear solid colors.
  • If you want to look slim and trim or slimmer and trimmer,
  • wear solid colors instead of prints.
  • Of course we're gonna wear prints.
  • I love prints, but where you place prints
  • is very important.
  • So, if you are trying to make your lower body look slimmer,
  • do not put a print on your lower body.
  • Put something solid.
  • So, here's an example of me wearing a printed skirt.
  • It's a polka dot skirt, red and white,
  • super cute, but that's gonna make my lower body look bigger
  • and call more attention to that area.
  • So, if that is the goal, then do the print.
  • If that is not the goal,
  • you wanna look slimmer on your lower half,
  • then do a solid.
  • If you really wanna go all out,
  • you an do all one color from head to toe.
  • The beautiful thing is any color from head to toe
  • is going to be elongating and slimming.
  • Darker colors are going to have more of a slimming effect
  • because they're darker.
  • So, colors like black like this suit,
  • navy, burgundies, browns,
  • anything that's dark, charcoal gray,
  • those are all gonna be more slimming
  • than let's say, whites and pastels.
  • But those solid colors from head to toe
  • still have that elongating and slimming effect.
  • So, you can do a beautiful beige from head to toe
  • or a beautiful white from head to toe,
  • and that will create still a long, lean effect.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The next tip I wanna share is to wear a V-neck
  • like the one I'm wearing now versus a crew neck.
  • So, crew neck is something that usually falls
  • to about right here, about your collarbone,
  • and it's just a very small half-circle here.
  • It's a beautiful neckline,
  • but what happens is it's not quite as elongating
  • on that upper body,
  • and it's especially problematic
  • from you're particularly busty.
  • It will make you look even bustier.
  • So, if the goal is to minimize and to look slimmer
  • and elongate, then definitely do a V-neck line.
  • It will for sure elongate that upper body,
  • minimize that bust, and make you look longer and leaner.
  • (upbeat music)
  • the next tip I wanna share that will help you look slimmer
  • is to wear vertical stripes, pinstripes.
  • The reason vertical stripes work
  • is because there are lines this way,
  • and it creates that long, lean line.
  • So, it's a really cool menswear-inspired print.
  • It also makes you look longer and taller,
  • so it's a win-win for sure.
  • Here is an example of a pair of pinstripe, wide-leg pants,
  • very elongating, very slimming.
  • They also have that high waist and that high rise.
  • So, when you're thinking about really creating
  • that super long, lean line, you could do a pinstripe pant,
  • you could do a pinstripe suit.
  • You could even do a stripe down the side of your jeans
  • which are really popular and hot right now.
  • That often creates a visual illusion
  • of less inches on your leg.
  • It sort of cheats in the leg a little bit
  • and that is very flattering, too.
  • So, if you don't wanna go pinstripes,
  • you could try just those racing stripes
  • down the side of your jeans.
  • That has a very similar effect.
  • (upbeat music)
  • The last tip I wanna share with you guys
  • is to wear long necklaces and just generally
  • be strategic with your jewelry.
  • The long necklace, the pendant necklace,
  • has the power to elongate just like a V-neck line does.
  • It's a really simple, easy way
  • to just add some length to your body
  • and add that slimming effect.
  • It's really quick and simple.
  • Some of you may have some issues
  • with the long necklace.
  • If you're particularly busty, you don't want it
  • to look like they're just hanging off the shelf,
  • but if you don't have that issue,
  • I do think that's a great look.
  • And it is, again, just a very simple way
  • to create that long, lean torso.
  • And then other things to think about with your jewelry
  • is wherever you place it is where the eye is going to go.
  • So, if you wanna draw the eye, let's say, up here
  • toward your face and chest, then do place something
  • right here, sort of a collar necklace here
  • or a really pretty pair of drop earrings here.
  • That's going to call attention to your face
  • and to this area that you wanna draw the attention to.
  • (upbeat music)
  • And as per usual, I have some bonus tips for you guys.
  • So, if you're worried about a puffy face
  • or a round face, you can always do contouring,
  • especially here, along the cheekbone.
  • You do the fishy face, and then you contour here,
  • contour around here.
  • You can contour the nose
  • and then you can contour the jawline.
  • That will make a rounder face look more chiseled
  • and look more slim, especially here along the jawline.
  • That's if you've got a little bit of a double chin,
  • you can do that, just some contouring here and here.
  • So, that's a quick and simple thing you can do
  • just to create that illusion of being a bit slimmer.
  • Also, I would highly recommend trying a bra
  • that banishes back fat
  • like the Soma Vanishing Back Bra.
  • It really works.
  • I have one, I've tried it, I've reviewed it on the blog.
  • I'll put a link to it below.
  • It has a different back to it,
  • and the way that it falls, it does not catch the skin
  • or the fat on your back.
  • So, it just keeps everything nice and smooth in the back.
  • So, I think that's a great investment
  • and it's a nice bra to have.
  • The last thing I just wanna talk about is shapewear.
  • Of course, we've got that at our disposal,
  • so why not use it?
  • I really prefer to do a shapewear skirt
  • or an Underbust Spanx shorts
  • or the Underbust Spanx.
  • I think both are awesome.
  • The benefit of the skirt
  • is that you don't have to worry
  • about the bathroom situation,
  • but you could also do a tank with tummy control,
  • any kind of shapewear that you wanna use,
  • especially if you're wearing something
  • very clingy and fitted.
  • It's really nice to smooth out those lumps and bumps,
  • and again, just look like you've lost 10 pounds,
  • five to 10 pounds, and you've done nothing,
  • no diet or exercise.
  • You just have on your Spanx, and man,
  • if you gotta double down, double down.
  • I have done that before where I've doubled down on Spanx
  • or I've done a tummy control tank
  • and also, a high-waist tummy control brief,
  • whatever you need to do.
  • You gotta do what you gotta do,
  • but I just wanted to remind you of those tips as well
  • because they're ones that I think are worth repeating,
  • and they're important.
  • And those are great tools to have in your toolbox.
  • So, I'm making sure that you have the shapewear you need
  • so that when you have that situation
  • of wearing a tighter dress, you're prepared, you're ready.
  • Throw that shapewear on and you're super confident
  • walking out the door.
  • Okay, guys.
  • So, those are your 10 tips to help you
  • instantly look slimmer, no diet or exercise required.
  • Again, these tips are just suggestions.
  • I am by no means saying that you need
  • to look slimmer and taller.
  • It's just if you would like to look slimmer and taller.
  • Here are some tried and true tips and tricks that work
  • across the board, regardless of your size,
  • regardless of your height, regardless of your body type.
  • So, use them!
  • They're awesome.
  • I use them all the time.
