More Thoughts on Colour: Look Slimmer in Any ShadeWritten by d'Italia
In previous posts, we feel we’ve finally put to rest some of the controversy over the argument of dark/slimming and bright/enlarging colour/shape theories. So before you start dooming yourself to Tim Burton movie wardrobes or go through your closet and toss out all your yellow dresses, there is a way to make any colour out there work to your slimming advantage, regardless of its brightness.
The Power of One Colour Wearing one single colour may seem for some of you like a harsh idea, and to others it may seem like a relief, but the fact is that single-colour – or “monochromatic” – ensembles can drastically “slim down” your look. The idea is that by wearing one colour you give people seeing you more to look at. Instead of highlighting any problem areas with a single, distinctive colour that they can continually return to or get distracted by, you give them a broad plane with no distinguishing sections, meaning every part of your body is on equal footing. So for a super-slim look, try all black or all navy, but even with bright colours this trick can help.
