<p>Watch this video to see how you can use these fashion items to create a more slimming look:</p>
<h2>1. A jumpsuit with vertical stripes</h2>
<p>A jumpsuit is a fashion essential for summer because it’s comfortable to wear and can be worn from day to night. The vertical stripes are key because they help to make the body look slimmer. A belt detail will help to nip in the waist and draw attention to the smallest part of the body, plus it will give shape. Keep it casual during the day with a pair of flats and a beach bag, and dress it up at night with a pair of block heels and metallic accessories.</p>
<h2>2. Side-striped leggings</h2>
<p>For a more casual look, a pair of leggings is the way to go. Whether you’re heading to a friend’s place for a braai or picking the kids up from a playdate, a pair of leggings is a useful item in any wardrobe. And on the plus side, they’re guaranteed to be comfy. A side stripe on your leggings will help make your legs appear longer, hence the fabulous slimming effect! Pair them with comfy sneakers and a graphic T-shirt with a denim jacket. To amp up the look, add accessories such as hoop earrings and bangles.&nbsp;</p>
<h2>3. Side-striped dress with tie details</h2>
<p>Play with the width of your stripes, and choose vertical stripes for a slimming effect. A knee-length dress allows you to stay cool on warmer days, and a tie detail around the waist allows you to show off your shape and gives a slimming effect. A shirtdress is also incredibly versatile and can be worn to work or for a casual outing – it all depends how you accessorise.&nbsp;</p>

<h2>4. Black-and-white-striped palazzo pants</h2>
<p>Palazzo pants are an absolute must-have in any wardrobe. The high-waist feature serves to pull everything in and gives shape, while the flaring at the bottom makes you appear taller. Vertical black-and-white stripes also work together to give a slimmer look. Pair your palazzo pants with a plain off-the-shoulder top and sexy pair of shoes for the ultimate night-out look.</p>
<h2>5. Belted high-waisted trousers</h2>
<p>High-waisted pants are a slimming essential because they prevent a muffin top and they work to flatten the stomach – a win-win situation! At the same time, the belt detail works to draw attention to the slimmest part of the body – the waist. It’s fun to play with the length of your trousers so they end up being calf-length – super-slimming! A cute T-shirt and pair of heels will help you achieve a casual yet fun look.</p>
<h2>6. Black jumpsuit with a side stripe</h2>
<p>For a slimming effect, you can’t go wrong with black vertical stripes. Black is the best slimming colour and the side stripe will draw attention to the shape of your figure. For a more covered-up look, add a plain white shirt underneath. Add a pop of colour when it comes to your shoes – how about a pair of red block heels to finish things off?&nbsp;</p>
