As women we all have insecurities about our bodies. There are times when your self-image can even stop you from shopping; which is just crazy because what woman doesn’t love a good shopping spree? But no need to fear because today I am going to provide you with a few tips on how to be completely updated on all of the latest trends for summer and look and feel better in your own skin while still being the Tsnious women that you are.
The first tip we should all be familiar with. Layering! Layering with jacket or cardigan is an easy way to section off parts of the body you might want to hide, in turn making it appear slimmer. This is an easy one for modest women like us because it provides the opportunity to wear fashionable tank tops or sleeveless dresses that are not modest but can be with layering. It’s a win win situation for modest women. Just make sure to choose light fabrics and 3/4 sleeves that are more suitable for summer. This technique will make us look slimmer and up to date on trends! What woman wouldn’t want that?
Another very popular trend this summer is the maxi skirt. The maxi skirt is not only a very attractive piece of clothing that every woman should have in their closet, but it also does a good job of creating the illusion of a smaller waist and longer legs. The waist is a good area to focus on to make yourself look slimmer and the illusion of longer legs instantly causes the person who is looking at you to process your length rather than your width. Maxi skirts are easily attainable which is great for us because sometimes it is difficult to find modest clothing that is both trendy and flattering. Definitely go get your hands on one if you haven’t already!
Many of us women are a little afraid to branch out into bright colors and bold patterns. We tend to lean more towards the side of monochromatic pieces. We all need to break this habit! The bright colors and patterns serve as a distraction and they accentuate the parts of your body that you are most fond of. You do not have to cover yourself head to toe in a colorful chevron print! Start off with a small part of your outfit and work your way up. Next time you go out shopping do not hesitate to pick up something that has a crazy print or a wild color!
If you have already tried to push yourself to branch out into brighter and more busy clothing but find that there is no possible way you can get yourself to actually wear it, don’t fear. Going with the safer black ensemble is also a great way to dress modestly and make you look slimmer. The dark color blends the shadows of the clothing virtually erasing any problem area one may want to conceal. Wearing black is classic! You will never have to worry about it going out of style!
I’m sure that many of us have come across a top that is slim and then flares out at the bottom; and I know some may be hesitant about checking it out. Well hesitate no more! It is the peplum style top and it is exceptional in slimming a woman out. Pairing peplum top with a pencil midi skirt cinches in the waist creating a very slim effect. These tops also do a good job of hiding the lower tummy, which is great for a woman who is insecure about that area of her body. This type of shirt is not only great for making our bodies look slimmer but it is also a very hot trend at the moment! You can also find peplum skirts and peplum dresses.
Now that you know of a few ways to use fashion as a tool to make yourself look slimmer, which technique do you see yourself using the most? Do you think you can get yourself to branch out into the “unknown”? Do you know of any other ways to dress fashionably and modestly while still slimming yourself out?
