7 Style Tips And Outfit Ideas To Disguise Chunky Thighs

Finding it hard to flatter your thighs? Well no more, ladypal. We've got styling tips and outfit choices for gals who aren't keen on their lower half.

So here’s the deal, you really dislike your thighs. In your eyes, they look chunky and you struggle to find clothes that flatter them.

We hear ya, and while we reckon you should totally embrace your shape, we also know that sometimes that isn’t always easy.

Luckily, if you’re having an off day and feeling mighty self conscious about your lower half, there are a few styling tricks, which will help to flatter your thighs and help you feel more confident.

Here’s how…

1. Opt for boot cut trousers

These will balance out your thighs and make you look slimmer. They’re far more flattering than skinny jeans, which will just end up emphasising the width of your thighs.

2. Choose A-line skirts

Thanks to their added length, A-line or floaty skirts will conceal your thighs. Don’t go too flowy though, as you could end up looking frumpy.

3. Be careful with print

When choosing bottoms you have to be especially careful with the type of print you go for. Choose detailed print over big, bold patterns, which will leave you looking disproportionate.

4. Black is best

There’s something oh-so-slimming about dark colours. Black in particular can do absolute wonders for your body. We’d recommend, when you’re choosing a tight fitted dress, that black’s probably the best way to go. Pair it with some colourful accessories, and you’ll definitely be on to a winner.

5. Long over short

If you’re choosing a dress to suit your thighs, it’s best to follow the advice ‘the longer the better’. Opt for a flattering knee-length or maxi dress.

6. Carefully accessorise

Don’t want your thighs to be the focal point? Compliment your outfits by accessorising with chunky necklaces and earrings to draw attention away from your lower half.

7. Add heels

We all know that heels elongate your legs and make them look thinner. We heart this gorgeous pair from Kurt Geiger.
