One of her latest fashion hacks focuses on how you can appear slimmer and taller depending on what outfit you opt for.
Ashley, who is a size 12-14 and 5 foot 2 inches, first appears in the TikTok video wearing light coloured jeans, sandals and a simple, boxy t-shirt.
However, she explains: “Straight hems cut us off at our widest part making us look wider and shorter.”
Instead, Ashley suggests swapping the straight-hemmed top for something else.
When she reappears in the clip, Ashley is wearing the same outfit, but this time with a slightly longer, curved hem, pink t-shirt.
She explains: “Try a curved hem to elongate the leg and smooth your midsection.”
The comparison is clear to see, as Ashley does appear to look slimmer and taller in an instant.
Not only does the t-shirt accentuate a smaller part of her body, but it also elongates her legs.
This is the fashionista’s latest style hack to have gone down a storm with her followers.
In recent weeks, Ashley has also shared clips on how to create a crop top look without showing skin and three ways to style a kimono.
Other videos that have been popular with her followers are “how to style a $12 dress” and what are good options to wear to a wedding when you’re midsize.
Ashley has 26,400 followers and counting and has amassed 96,600 likes.
