This can be tricky, if we're talking about all muscle and you have built your obliques through exercise whether directly as with side bends or indirectly through a particular sport the only way to reduce them is probably to reduce the stimulation they receive - no side bends etc.

They are not a muscle that usually needs to be trained specifically anyway.

If you're talking about "love handles" and it's not rock hard muscle then try both cutting down your food intake and doing some good fat burning exercise at a moderate intensity for medium or long duration to reduce bodyfat. You can't target the fat in one area of your body by any particular exercise as you may know.
