Soft black fabrics with long lines pattern on them, will help you look thinner and longer, which in turn will get rid of the roundness you’re experiencing. However, if black is not your color, go for natural or dark hues such as khaki, gray or tan, as these have almost the same effect.

Also, you could pair your dark-colored top with delicate jewelry or opt for something that has embroidery detailing on it.
And for your feet, go for low wedges, but stay far away from rounded toe shoes as these will make your legs look bulkier.
