How to look slimmer: three Hints for Winter Clothing


1.Flattering contrasts: Light-colored outfits
The combination of contrasting colors, as we’ve seen in many tips, usually
gives the best results by overlaying a light-colored garment (a shirt, a coat, a
jacket) on a dark-colored outfit, because this ensemble creates a long, thin
silhouette, which is emphasized by the dark color. In the winter, though, you
can apply this hint even by inverting the colors, that means using a more
intense color overlaid with a fairly light-colored outfit. Why? Because
with winter clothing, usually, the leg is completely covered. The multiple
gaps between shoe/leg/trousers disappear, and instead, you have a long,
uninterrupted vertical line that is slender, albeit clear.
As you can see in the pictures below, the coat paired with contrasting
trousers (on the left) has a widening effect, whereas worn open on a lightcolored
outfit (on the right), it slims and stretches out the figure. Hint: you
can obtain the same result by merely wearing a light-colored scarf over the dark coat, so as to visually extend the line of the legs.

2.Accessories: Match warm and cool hues
Another element that can flatter your silhouette in multiple ways is pairing
complementary hues. Carefully choosing the colors of the outfit as well as
those of the accessories can help brighten your appearance, adding the
visual effect of a thinner and harmonious figure.
The best pairings are complementary tones, as well as matching warm and
cool colors. This way you can balance the whole figure while obtaining a
lovely silhouette thanks to a wise combination of hues and proportions. Hint:
the results are better if you can apply this tip to accessories that remain in
sight even when wearing the coat, such as scarves, handbags, and shoes,
and playing around with their shades to balance the ensemble. In the left
image, for example, the bright bag helps to brighten a dark outfit (and the
shoes, even if dark, have a hue similar to that of the bag). The scarf knotted to
the bag can also be wrapped around the neck. On the right, the warm brown
tones match with the blue tones of the outfit.

3.How to pair ankle sneakers
In the winter months, sneakers can become more challenging to wear, not so
much for temperature reasons (sneaker addicts wear them even at twenty
degrees below zero), but mainly because the most common winter pattern
usually reaches the ankle, which frequently has the disadvantage of cutting
the figure shorter.
The simplest choice to get the best results is usually to match this type of
footwear with straight pants in the same tone as that of the sweater (or of
the jacket). Coordinating tones, as we have often pointed out, is an easy way
to create a long, continuous line (as in the image on the right) that balances
out the widening effect of the ankle shoe (whereas on the left, the widening
effect of the sneakers is emphasized).
Another option is to wear boot-cut pants, which, thanks to their flared
line, always slenderize the silhouette, allowing greater freedom in the

choice of footwear.
