I know this is a little off topic, but this is the most related topic I could find to ask such a question.

What type of clothing, or colors should one wear to make one look thinner?

Anonymous, this is probably one of the questions I get asked a lot. Looking thinner more about fit than it is about color. It is amazing how many women are NOT wearing the right size - and how hard it is to convince them to 'try' a different size pant/top/jacket. When I finally convince them - they can see the difference.

Looking thinner also depends on your body style, and what style clothing you are wearing. For example, if you are busty, you don't want to wear a peasant style top - that style can drape from the bustline - sometimes making ladies look pregnant. Yikes!

On color - until you become a self-educated fashionista, stick to the basics and keep it simple. Tonal dressing is always slimming - no matter what the color is. High heels will lengthen the leg - add inches to your height - and make you look slimmer. No low-cut jeans, or belly-shirts! Unless you are very slim (and very young), this will always date you (not in a good way), and add lbs.
