Compliment Your Figure: Enhance Your Style

Over the past year I have taken a break from fashion blogging because I gave birth to my second son.  Since that time, I have managed to return back to my pre – preggers clothing with some hard work and dedication.

But aside from living a healthy lifestyle, one of the key elements for looking fantastic after any MAJOR life change is by complimenting your figure.  In simple terms, I have mastered how to create body illusions with lines, color, and texture.  

Prior to my blogging life, I was also a fashion merchandising teacher.  I have decided to share some information (used from a lesson plan) that can benefit any fashionista.

Enhance Your Style

1.  Vertical Lines make you look taller and thinner.

2.  Horizontal Lines make you look shorter and rounder.

3. Shiny Textures add weight; while smoother textures help you to look smaller {don’t forget to consider where this texture will be worn.}

4.  Clothing Accessories should be in proportion to the body.  Example, a petite woman should never carry a handbag that’s half her size! Never!

5.  Create rhythm with colors, trims, and designs that will help pull the eye to areas that are most attractive.

6.  Place emphasis on your BEST features!
