How to look skinny in pictures

Whatever your silhouette, tips and tricks to help you learn to dress so you look slimmer for your next photo shoot.  Simple ideas help you dress to look slimmer for your next photo shoot.

Proper Size

The first obvious thing you need to do to look slim in photos is to wear appropriate clothing that will make you look slimmer. In general, clothes that fit well will always make you look slimmer and more well put together. If you know you need to pose for a photo shoot, make sure you choose darker colors for your outfit or have a monochrome outfit. This will lengthen the silhouette of your body and create a flattering image of you. The key to always look good on a photo is to know your body type and dress accordingly.


Dress in one color. When you dress in two colors and / or two different prints, the eye is naturally attracted to the area in which the two meet, which usually corresponds to your waistline. “Wear black” is probably the most common wardrobe tip. It is true! It’s easy for anyone to use this well-known trick and it really works. Unlike other colors, black does not reflect light - so it does not create shadow around the bulges or curves of your body. For this reason, black perfectly hides imperfections while giving you a chic and elegant look. When you create a black look from head to toe, you can get that ultimate and sexy look because your clothes create a vertical line. That’s why one of the most flattering and useful item a woman can have in her wardrobe is the famous Little Back Dress.

Colors mix

Choose clothing so that top and bottom are either dark or bright and don’t cut the shape with contrasting colors. If you want to add a bright spot do it in an elegant way, for example, you can add a monochrome lower layer using bright pants and a T-shirt which look much better with a dark jacket. 

Right Size

Choose the right size clothing: as we already said, loose clothing will make you appear bigger, and tight clothing will highlight your problem areas. Choose simple tailoring without any extra details and also don’t wear shiny fabrics.

Be careful with jewelry: earrings and necklaces that are too big can ruin your image.

V for victory

Try wearing V-neck clothing, this also has a “magical” feature that makes you appear slimmer.  Another simple but effective tip to teach you how to dress to look thinner is to wear v-neck tops as they help elongate your upper body by adding balance to your hips and thighs. This is an especially great tip for gals with a bigger bust as v-neck tops will naturally draw the eye away from problem areas and towards the cleavage instead.

Beware light colors

White and light-washed jeans and pants have the potential to make your legs look thicker, so if you were blessed with big thighs, always choose darker colors as they have a slimming effect.


Avoid anything with horizontal prints, be it big or small. Vertical print dresses with deep necks are a good option.


Keep hair higher at the top of your head. You can slim a round face by adding slight volume in the crown. To create height at the top of your head, lightly tease the hair near the crown, brushing from ends to roots with a wide-tooth comb. As for the rest of your hair, keep it smooth and past your shoulders for a sleeker look.

Brightest Part

Wear the lightest color on what you want to show off.  Our eyes are naturally attracted to the brightest part of the “picture” first.  If you wear white on anything, we will notice that first.


Wear heels with skinny jeans. You can make your legs look longer by ensuring your denim is ankle-length (or slightly longer) and wearing them with a pair of pointed-toed heels.
