Diets and gym time aside, you can look longer and more slender with the right clothing. Here, we reveal the universally slimming pieces you can add to your wardrobe.
1. Halter jumpsuit
The halter neckline elongates the arms, and the solid color provides a slimming effect to your silhouette.

2. Tiny prints
Huge, overbearing prints can drown your frame and make you appear heftier than you really are. Opt for small prints like fine stripes, tiny florals, and gingham to refine your shape.

Long earrings can create the illusion of a slimmer, oval-shaped face.

4. A long, sleeveless jacket
The fluid style can hide unwanted bulges while vertically extending your frame.

5. High waist bottoms
I honestly think that high waist anything is a girl's best friend. It makes your thighs and legs look leaner; plus, your puson gets tucked in!

6. Above-the-knee skirts
An instant way to make your stems appear slimmer is by wearing a voluminous skirt (think A-line, trumpet, and tent) that ends above the knee or shows a lot of leg.

7. Cropped pants
When your ankles are covered by pants, there is a tendency that you'll look shrunken. To avoid this, choose pants that are cropped right above the ankle.

8. Wedge sandals
A summer staple that can elevate your look both literally and figuratively without sacrificing comfort.

9. Block heels
Another option to try when you want your gams to look more slender. Pick a pair in a light hue so it won't 'cut' your legs.

10. Flats with a low vamp
If heels aren't your thing, go with low-vamp flats that show toe cleavage, which then make your legs look longer.
