I’m a fashion pro – how to stop winter coats from looking bulky & slim your shape just by tying the belt a different way | The Sun

WITH a long-sleeve under a sweater, a tied scarf, and fuzzy gloves, you've got one more layer to go – the jacket, and it's the bulkiest item.

Winter coats can often be twice your size, even without anything underneath, but there's one belt trick to make you look slimmer.

Even though the comfort of a ton of layers is worth it in the cold weather, a bulky coat never feels flattering.

When you can't move your arms above your shoulders, and your whole upper body is stiff, you question your decision to go outside.

But as school and work continue through the winter, your routine of wearing a cumbersome coat does too.

Luckily, one TikTok user shared her hack to make an oversized coat slimmer.

Kristina unties the belt in the front and ties it around her back.

"This will help to accentuate your waist," she admits.

"And look slimmer."

Although this doesn't work for zip-up puffer jackets, there are a few tips to make your appearance look less inflated when wearing these.

You can pair a cropped puffer jacket with form-fitting bottoms such as skinny jeans, leggings, bodycon maxi skirts, or yoga pants.

Additionally, you can wear light layers underneath and substitute a beanie hat for your scarf to decrease the bulkiness of your body.
