This "seems" like it could also accept "to seem fat". Legit.
Now we are halfway to translating "do I look fat in this skirt"

E.g. could I use "părea" to say 'to look AT something' instead of 'to look LIKE something'?
Could this also be translated as "to look fat"? For example, that guy over there looks fat
