7 Summer Outfits That Make You Look 10 Pounds Lighter
The goal is to look slim in your summery best. The solution is to copy any of these seven flattering outfits that will make you look longer and leaner.
Wrap Dress + Mules
We’ll let you in on a little secret: This silhouette cinches you in at your slimmest point (your waist) and floats away from your hips, butt and legs, for an effect that's 100 percent flattering. We love how Katie Sturino opted for one in a summery gingham print and paired it with mule sandals for a bit of lift.
Crop Top + A-Line Midi Skirt
Think a crop top is only for women with washboard abs? Think again. Worn with a high-waist A-line skirt, a crop top can actually make any figure svelter, since it shows just a sliver of skin at your narrowest point. Make sure to also stick to a midi length that hits between your knee and ankle.
One-Shoulder Dress + Sandals
If you’re not into flaunting your midsection, a short but loose dress like Sommar Theodore’s is a no-brainer. The thigh-high hemline shows off your great legs while the one-shoulder top highlights your collarbone and shoulder.
Cropped Jumpsuit + Skinny Belt + Platform Sneakers
When in doubt, belt it. A skinny belt works wonders for highlighting—or creating—an hourglass silhouette. Also note how Tiffany Jais’s pants have a wide, cropped leg that hits above her ankle. This, plus the platform sneaks, creates the illusion of a taller, leggier physique.
Cropped Jeans + Cami + Kimono
Grace Atwood’s fun, summery look provides coverage without adding bulk. The cropped straight leg plus pumps is an easy win when trying to add height.
White Top + White Pants
The point here? Wear a monochromatic ensemble (whether it’s white on white, black on black or pink on pink) for an easy way to streamline your silhouette and look trimmer. Bonus points for pop-of-color accessories.
