Take it from the pros. Editors know the tricks of the trade when it comes down to optical illusion dressing. These five editor-approved style tricks will have you looking stylish and svelte in no time.
2. A Bold Shoulder
Top a slim-fitting outfit with a bold-shouldered outer shell, like the ever-popular shaggy faux fur coat, to give legs and hips a more svelte appearance.
4. Fitted Blazer
Donning a stylish jacket can make you look and feel put together while covering up.
5. The Half-Tuck
Try this editor favorite: Tucking in only the front part of your shirt into tailored pants or jeans will give the illusion of a flat stomach.
