Try these tricks to get you out of the post-holiday weight rut. 7 ways to look thinner, without lifting a muscle…
If you’re anything like me, you’re re-evaluating everything you’ve eaten from November to January, and you might be thinking- wow did I need that extra glass of champagne? Or, whipped cream on my hot chocolate? And as I lie on the bed and try to button my once skinny jeans, that are now my way-too-tight- jeans, I’m ready to look thinner instantly- and this way, nobody will notice how much weight I’m really trying to burn off at the gym.
1. Vertical stripes please
It’s an age-old fact that horizontal lines can add a few pounds (especially to a woman’s hip region), but many forget that just the opposite is true for its counterpart, vertical stripes. Vertical stripes lengthen the frame and when paired with heels can instantly give the illusion of a more slender physique.

2. Groom those brows
It may seem silly, but the neater a woman’s brow line, the slimmer and more elegant her face looks. However, readers beware! Groomed brows to look skinny, does not mean skinny brows to look skinny! Brows that are pencil thin will actually have the opposite effect- adding weight to the face!
