Have a glam party to attend soon and you have no time to work out or to hit the gym to lose those extra pounds? Now, you must be fretting over if your pictures will end up looking good or not. Chill, we say, as the right styling can give an illusion of a slimmer you. Here a few tips:

Wear heels with pointy toes

Pointy-toe shoes give an illusion of thin legs and ankles. (Pinterest)

The farther you are from the floor the skinnier you’ll look. Make your legs look longer and leaner with pointy toe pumps. A slender toe and thin heel can work wonders when it comes to drawing attention to your calves. On the other hand, square-toe styles with a broad can make you look shorter and make your legs look fat.

Use your jewellery wisely

Long necklaces can make you look slimmer. (Pinterest)

Long length necklaces add length to a short neck, If you’re heavy on the arms, sparkly hand cuffs or bangles are a good idea to instantly draw attention to your wrists. Also, such accessories add glam to a simple, plain outfit.

Go for a fake tan

A faint glow makes a lot of difference when you want to look slimmer or define your existing features. A tan spray can make your legs, arms and shoulders look much more skinny and give your skin a natural shine.

Define your waist

You can try thin or broad belts depending on your problem area. (Pinterest)

Go for a skinny belt around the waist to cover any flab. You can also go for a broad belt if you have fat mostly on the sides of your waist.

Go for colour blocking or cut out designs

While choosing a dress, go for an hourglass shape as it gives an illusion of a thinner waist. You can also wear contrasting colours or pair your outfit with a pop-coloured tote bag to draw attention elsewhere.

Give high waist pants a chance

High-waist pants are not just for the thin girls. (Pinterest)

High waist pants that cover the fat around your waist, give an illusion of a lean waist. Pair ‘em with a crop top or a loose button down shirt.

Wear your hair up

Pulling hair away from the face instead of letting it down is a good idea. A high ponytail makes one look younger, as it has a slimming effect on the face.
