9 Ways To Look Thinner Without
Unless you have access to advanced military technology, clothes can’t completely hide a huge gut. But they can make you look thinner.

6. Wear Longer Jackets and Shirts
Short-cropped shirts will make your torso look stubby, or worse, allow your belly or ass crack to creep out. Longer cuts on shirts and jackets eliminate this problem and elongate your shape.
7. Stay Away From Bulky Fabrics
Sleeker, thinner fabrics will keep you looking more slender. That means you should typically forgo hoodies, cargo pants, or anything with a front pouch. A V-neck cashmere cardigan or one made with thin merino wool is a good choice because it won’t add bulk.
8. Skip Light Colors
Light colors reflect more and therefore make everything look bigger and broader. That’s why, as you’ve probably heard, black is slimming.
9. Wear Flat-Front Pants
Buy pants that are flat, not pleated; the waistline can higher on your hips to create the illusion of longer legs, and you won’t have billowy pleats around your waist and hips, making them look bigger.
