With the summer season nearing, perhaps getting into tip-top shape is being worked on. There are thought  many tips and guidelines one can follow when it comes to choosing what to wear that will offer a slim appearance.  

It is only natural to think that trying to cover up the problem areas by wearing large or baggy clothing  will hide the flaws,  Actually this only adds to a bigger appearance.  Instead, choose clothes that are the correct size and opt for clothes that give some stretch breathing room but still hug the body.  

Here are some ideas that have an immediate slimming effect:

  • Color Block

Color blocks in dresses or tops can trick the eye by creating the illusion of a slimmer torso and frame. When stretched from top to bottom, the darker shade blocking helps elongate and slim out the entire body.

  •  Wrap dress

The draping that comes along with this cinched style is ideal for covering any bulges as the  classic shape is constructed to come in at the natural waist and take inches off the waistline.

  • Pencil skirt

Go with a slim style skirt that utilizes seaming and smart placement of a solid color in a thin skirt to harness in a sleeker and a thinner look.

  • Slacks and jeans

On those casual Fridays at the office in the summer, always opt for boot cut pants nstead of flare or straight legged. This creates a balance look for those that tend to be bottom heavy.

Even the right designer handbag can give off the illusion being slim such as an authentic Louis Vuitton Vernis Reade MM handbag.

Look fresh and trendy anytime of the day like Sandra Bullock does in silver/gray Vernis leather with embossed LV monogram logos situated all over its vertical frame.

Embodying Louis Vuitton elegance, this one shines with iridescent shades that blends faultlessly with different hued apparel.

The Reade MM works well for a number of activities also such as a shopping bag or for carting a newspaper or iPad when commuting to work .

The LV Vernis features natural cowhide double flat handles as a handheld design. Gold tone hardware is used in the form of studs with the Louis Vuitton name engraved on each.
