Change your Body Shape with a Few Simple Rules
v You can change your body shape with the colors you choose
Dark colors minimize while light colors will maximize. Make choices to help bring out your best features and to camouflage areas that are less than perfect. This timeless rule has never changed but is often forgotten or overlooked.
Heavy hips? Avoid wearing light pants. Choose darker colors to camouflage your hips.
Large Bust? Once again, choose to wear the darker colors in sweaters and tops.
Your eyes will focus on the lighter colors, so you will want to keep the lighter colors where you want to draw attention and the darker colors where you want to disguise.
Women, who are curvy plus and opt to wear darker colors, don’t have to settle for drab. Bring out your beautiful smile, eyes and hair by wearing a scarf, earrings or necklace that will draw the attention to your face.
v You can also change your body shape with patterns
Busy patterns and designs in fabric will draw attention to that area. Likewise the busy patterns will bring out areas that you wish to enhance to appear larger. It is so easy to fall in love with a cute blouse, but if it is in a busy pattern and you are trying to camouflage that area, better to make a different choice.
I recently bought a darling yellow top with trendy studs on it. I thought it would look so cute with a pair of black pants. By the time I arrived back home and actually tried it on, I realized that it was way to “in your face” (to put it nicely) where the actual studs were located on my bust line. If you are uncertain, it is always best to try it on before you invest in that purchase. We do not need anymore clothes, hanging in our well organized closets, which we are not going to wear.
So, be honest, am I the only one who forgets this rule and finds myself making unflattering clothing purchases? I would like to hear from you by leaving your comments below.
