How to use clothing to emphasize body features.

You can use clothing to make certain aspects of your appearance look bigger, smaller, longer, thinner, or less noticeable.
1. Patterns - Clothing with vertical lines on your body will make certain parts of your body look thinner. Meanwhile, horizontal stripes usually make that space look wider. Bright, attention-grabbing patterns draw the eye to where they are worn, so if you want to emphasize your chest, a shirt with a pattern is a good choice. Conversely, dark, solid-colored pieces can weaken certain parts of your body, especially when paired with bright patterns.
2. Waist - Low-waisted clothes can make your body look curvier and more defined at the waist.
3. Structured cut - Clothes that have a structured cut can emphasize and shape any part of your body. Loose outerwear can make your upper body look bulkier, while shoulder pads can make your shoulders look wider. Pleated pants can also make legs look thicker.
4. Type of skirt - A-line skirts are great for adding curves and making your lower body look wider. Straight skirts are also good for the latter. Tapered skirts have the opposite effect; they can be worn when you want to take the pressure off your lower body.
5. Fit - - In general, a loose fitting dress or skirt will hide the silhouette, while a tight fitting dress or skirt will accentuate it.
