Look Slimmer by Choosing the Right Accessories: The North/South Career Bag
by Marsha Hallet

When you want to look your slimmest, it’s all about using balance and proportion to correctly define your appearance. You need to determine the correct ratio between your figure, your clothing choices, and your accessories. The shape and color of your career bag are important considerations when you want to look slimmer.

To elongate and slim your silhouette, the North/South rectangular career bag is your bag of choice.  Within that category, the most slimming look is monochromatic. When the color of your bag matches or blends with what you are wearing, your figure will appear to be more slender. If your bag hangs at your hip, you can also achieve this effect by just matching your bag to your skirt or trouser.

Another way to achieve a slender look is to use color. Pick an accent color in your jacket or sweater and bring it down to your hip area with your career bag choice. This will  elongate your figure.  

Contrasting accessories have more visual impact and add power or brand your appearance. A contrast color bag must be of a size that is in relationship to your hip area.  Bags that are too small make you look bigger.
