We always see skinny models in fashion magazines looking extremely confident while demonstrating new clothing trends. It feels like you can only look stylish if your body has "the perfect proportions."

We at Bright Side would like to persuade you that you can look great and beautiful regardless of the size of your clothes.

1. Look for the right size

Choosing clothes in the wrong size is the worst thing you can do and it will make your figure look less than its best. This is particularly true for jeans. Don’t buy smaller jeans and squeeze into them. No one will see the size on the label. Jeans that are too skinny will make your tightened sides and belly look unappealing.

2. Try on middle- and high-waisted jeans

Fortunately for us all, low-waisted jeans, pants, and skirts are not in fashion anymore. Bottoms with middle or high waists are currently trending. Such jeans perfectly accentuate the best parts of your figure, and they also hide any deficiencies of the waist.

3. Color matters

Jeans in classic dark blue with no fading or other color accents visually make your figure slimmer. Moreover, such jeans are not only an essential item of the wardrobe that go well with any other clothes but they also look very elegant and chic.

4. Be creative with layers and textures

Choose shirts, sweaters, blazers, and jackets that fall just over the middle of your hips. This will help to balance your silhouette.

Don’t be afraid to use accessories and play with different textures. This can only be beneficial as it will hide any drawbacks you worry about.

Cardigans, capes, and kimonos are very stylish items of clothing that will make your figure look its best.

5. Accentuate your waist

It's no wonder that an hourglass shape is considered to be the most feminine and attractive figure. To get the right proportions of the upper and lower parts of your body, try to accentuate your waistline. For those who prefer a classic style, belts are the best solution. If you’re more into sportswear, shirts and sweaters that are tied at the waist are perfect for you.

6. Choose the right footwear

Wedge heels, masculine boots, or high boots create a "heavy look." Opt for elegant footwear in neutral colors, or choose a color that is the same as the color of your jeans. Avoid footwear that looks massive with a lot of straps that "break" your silhouette.
