We all aim to ace our #BalikAlindog plans, but when you get impatient with the results of a healthy diet and a regular exercise regimen (which, by the way, is still the sure route to a lean and toned body) you tend to slack off and stop your fitness resolution all together. To keep you motivated on your quest to a trimmer bod or when you just want to drop pounds in seconds, try these slimming hacks.

1. Wear a long outerwear.

When you top off an outfit with a jacket, blazer, or coat that falls below your waist, you create a long vertical line on your body, which trims your silhouette.

2. Put on a flouncy dress or skirt.
It highlights a tiny waist and hides a heavy bottom, creating a shape for your natural curves.

3. Add a thin belt to your outfit.
This underrated fashion accessory cinches the waist and creates an hourglass shape. Stay away from thick belts because they tend to divide your body into two big chunks.

4. Go monochrome.
Dressing in one color from head to toe can make you appear taller and leaner.

5. Take a deep plunge.
A V-neck possesses awesome slimming abilities: It can slenderize a round face, lengthen your neck, and narrow down your waist.
