8 Outfits To Hide Thick Thighs and Calves
They say #loveyourself and #loveyourbody but let's be real, self love and self awareness can coexist.
Most people who love themselves will still have certain parts of their body that they're not particularly confident in. And sometimes, we'd be happier and more comfortable when they're hidden!
If that part of your body is your legs, read on to find out eight clothing combinations that will flatter your body and make you feel great!
#1 Maxi dress + heels
A maxi dress will not only hide your legs but will also make you look taller! Complete your look with heels to add extra height.
If you're on the petite side, avoid dresses that are too oversized as it may make you look even shorter!
#2 Crop top + high-waisted bottoms with slits
High-waisted skirts and pants make your legs look longer by tricking the eye into thinking that the legs start high up on your body. The slits are a great way to show off a bit of skin while still covering any parts that you're less confident in.
#3 Light top + dark bottoms
Light colours visually enlarges and dark colours visually shrinks, so wear a bright top and dark trousers or skirt to make your legs look slimmer.
#4 Full maxi skirt + fitted top
This is an easy way to cover your legs and make yourself look taller. Wear a high-waisted skirt to elongate your lower body and a fitted top to create a balanced silhouette.
#5 High-waisted loose pants + heels or sandals
Avoid skinny jeans which may emphasise the shape of chunkier calves. Instead, opt for either loose pants or cigarette trousers that has a flattering tailored structure without being too fitted.
Once again, it's important that you choose a high-waisted pair to elongate your legs and draw attention to the smallest part of your body - your waist! Complete the look with sandals for a casual look or pointed toe heels which further elongates your legs visually.
#6 Long cardigan or coat + high waisted bottoms
A long cardigan or coat is a great way to hide your legs. Even if you're wearing shorts or a short dress underneath, the outerwear visually halves your legs from the front view so they appear slimmer!
#7 Long v-neck dress + heels
A v-neck top or dress draws attention to your upper body and makes you look slimmer overall. A wide-brimmed hat will also create contrast to make your body look smaller.
#8 Long dress or skirt with chunky shoes
Stay away from stiletto heels and kitten heels that will emphasise large calves. Go for flatform shoes or chunky boots as the large sole balances out with your legs to make them look slimmer.
