Use design and color to fool the eye and camouflage the body. The correct application of color theory and graphics helps us accentuate the positive through optical illusion. Certain shapes show the figure to its advantage. The appropriate use of color and line can make the silhouette appear narrower. Here are some ways to choose [Link Removed] and tops that make you appear thinner.

FIT: Always choose clothes that fit you. While nothing should be tight, it is best to stay away from bulky garments that add volume to your figure. Fitted garments make you look slimmer. A-line shapes fitted at the bust are optically pleasing.

COLOR: Choose colors that flatter you. Darker colors make a women look thinner hence the popularity of the classic “little black dress". Allow your skin tones and hair color to dictate the colors you wear.

COLOR BLOCKING: Choose graphics that create dimension where you need it. Look for color blocking where darker colors at the sides of a garment make the silhouette look narrower. Well-shaped dark cardigans or jackets over light blouses are always flattering.

LINES AND GRAPHICS: Choose lines and images to create your shape. Well-placed graphics can camouflage a large tummy or bust. Lines that angle inward narrow the body. A line at the waist gives definition.
