If you are looking for a slimming effect, a deep V-neck will do the trick. Another way to look slimmer is to wear high-waisted pencil skirts, which give the illusion of really long legs, just make sure that you find the right size for you, because a skirt that is too tight can create some unwanted bulges.
The perfect pencil skirt for your body type should fit nicely at the widest point of your hips and go straight down to the hem. When it comes to the hemline, a skirt that sits right above the knee creates the illusion of longer legs and is therefore perfect for petite ladies, and for tall women the hemline should hit just below the knee. A peplum top or a belt darker than your top and the skirt will easily create an hourglass look.
