Body Contouring With Color

8.15.2014







Two colors...a layering affect that contours the body shape.  There are so many dresses today that contours the body.  I think body contouring with the use of color is a great technique to add to any personal styling system.

Styling Tip  
Anyone can create their own body contouring look by simply using overlapping contrasting dark and light colors.  If you're going for a slimming affect then the darker color should be layered over the lighter color.  If you are going for a fuller affect then the lighter color should be layered over the darker color.  

Slimming Example - My blue jean jacket layered over my lemon ice sweater dress, provides a slimming affect with the help of a wrap belt.  Cinches my waist, camoflauges side bulging providing a smoother appearance while also minimizing the widness of my hips.  I definitely look slimmer with the jean jacket than without.  Think about this styling tip if you have been putting off wearing a more fitted dress.  The right jacket or sweater can definitely provide that little extra support without being overdone to pull your look off well.

Lastly,  SAVE THE FEET PLEASE - I love my high top sneakers while I'm in transit to any destination.  Now don't get me wrong, I love my heels too...the stilettos worn today are beautiful, but a little uncomfortable.  Heels (if comfortable) don't remain comfortable usually more than two-three hours.  So my sneakers and sandals are always right there for me until my heels are called for duty!
