A peplum top will help highlight the tiniest part of your waist and camouflage other problem areas (like heavy hips and muffin tops). Wear it with a pencil skirt for an overall slimming effect. Experiment with a contrasting colour or abstract prints. Add a high-waisted belt to further enhance your middle and gladiator sandals to toughen-up the delicate look.
