Bobbie's Take On Dressing To Look Slimmer, From Bobbie Thomas (VIDEO)

Bobbie Thomas, Celebrity Style Expert, doesn't think women need to be thin to look good -- it's all about flattering your figure. When Bobbie joined me on Mondays With Marlo, she shared tips on how to compliment different body types using clothing, shoes and accessories.

These are just a few of Bobbie's figure-flattering tips:

1. Avoid contrasting colors at your widest point. Empire waists are great for dealing with this.
2. Draped jackets, long necklaces and cowl neck tops are great for elongating.
3. If you're petite, shoes should match your skin tone or the color of your outfit.
