10 Simple And Slimming Style Tricks Every Woman Needs To Know

Harness the Slimming Power of Stripes

Horizontal stripes might be every fashion girl's favorite (we've lost count of the number of Saint James and PLAY Comme des Garçons tops Lucky staffers collectively own)—but if you're looking to slim yourself, they're not your best bet. Instead, go for vertical stripes or even pinstripes, which create an instantly slenderizing optical illusion. Another smart pick? Diagonal chevron stripes.
