By  | 

We all want to look our very best, but, it has been a while since you last hit the gym or exercised and your protruding jiggly belly is a constant concern to you. The trick to hiding your belly is simple – it lies in styling right. Layering is quite effective in hiding the paunch.

There are a lot of things you can do to hide your fatty belly, so that it does not come in your way of looking fabulous.

1. Avoid Tight Garments Over Your Belly And Choose Tops With A Ruche or Drape

If you want to look stylish and avoid highlighting your problem area, it is best not to wear tight tops. They will accentuate every fat bubble you have and draw attention away from you and your fabulous clothes. Rather choose tops that have some draping or ruching.

2. Bank On The Vertical Prints And Long Cardigans Or Jackets

Throw in a long cardigan or a jacket to create a nice vertical line and distract the eye from the belly. Slip into a pair of leggings and team it up with a long jacket to look leaner.

3. Color Blocking

Contrasting swaths of light and dark create an optical illusion that masks your middle. Make sure your dress has a V-neckline as it has a slimming effect on your shoulders. Pair this with sleek pointy pumps and avoid any shoe that is skimpy and strappy. This will make your legs appear longer.

4.  Do Not Emphasize Your Tummy By Adding Accessories Like Belts Right On Top Of Them

You do not want to draw attention to your tummy and belts will do just that when you belt too low. However, higher belts can be effective for some women by drawing attention upwards. This can work especially well if the top has a print or an asymmetrical detail. It will give you more shaping while still hiding that belly.

5. Choose Asymmetrical Tops

Asymmetrical tops create vertical lines that are great for disguising tummies. Layered tops will work too, especially when they have an asymmetrical element.

6. Wear Shapewear

A shapewear smooths and reshapes, but also helps you stand taller. It makes you more conscious of your posture. Invest in a high-waisted shaping bike short and it will hide the bulge beautifully.

7. Choose Your Jeans Wisely

When it comes to jeans, pick a mid-rise pair as it sits flat on your stomach. Avoid low-waist jeans which would give off a push-up effect to your belly and hence highlighting the belly fat even further.

8. Get Your Black Dress

A great-fitting black dress is a great go-to. The classic is short-sleeve or 3⁄4-length sleeve, fitted at the waist, slightly above the knees. Do not go baggy when you feel you have put on a few pounds. It will just make you look heavier. Instead, always wear something tailored.

9. Get Yourself An Over-sized Bag

Sometimes, we want to sport our regular clothes and the way you can hide your belly fat is by carrying an oversized bag. This is because over-sized bags help divert attention elsewhere.

10. Accessorize The Right Way

A large necklace can make you appear taller and leaner. because it directs attention up and away from your figure flaws. Depending on your body, a choker can be good, drawing attention to the neck. But if you have a big bust, choose a necklace on a short chain instead. Accessories like earrings or sparkly headbands are great distractions adding attention to where you want people to look.
