Dress Slimmer Series : The Long Jacket

This post is about so many of my 'loves', my love for makeovers, Oprah, designing and bandhani.

I have been a big fan of makeovers, the entire process, the excitement and anticipation before the big reveal, I just love it, its the best kind of entertainment for me.
A makeover to me isn't just about the new hairstyle and new clothes,  it is about the confidence and personality transformation that comes with it. It is like the birth of a whole new person, so fascinating and exciting to watch.
So today I want to share one of my favourite 'dress slimmer' tricks, which I picked up from one of my fav Oprah (love her too) makeovers.

Here is the before and after of that makeover..

The long top, skims over the sides, creating a curtain like effect cutting the hips and legs into half  hence creating an illusion of a slimmer frame.
Here is my take on the trick..

The long jacket makes her look slimmer and taller.
