“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”
We all look for clothes which are fashionable. Fashionable or not, whether the clothes suit your body type or not should be your priority. The right type of clothes can make you look like you just came out of a runaway and ill fitted clothes stop you from getting the right look. Different clothes are suitable for different body types. If you aren’t one of those fortunate ones who have the hourglass figure then these optical illusions are sure to help you!
Stripes can do wonders. If you’re on the skinner side and want to look a little broader, go for horizontal stripes. These stripes make you look wider. Women who are on the slender side can opt for horizontal stripes; however, curvy women should try to avoid it as it might make them look curvier.
There are many women out there who are curvy but think that they look ‘fat’. If you’re one of the curvy ones, try vertical stripes. They create an illusion where you look leaner. If you want clothes which can give you a slimming effect, then you definitely want to get your hands on it!
If you are on the curvier side, and have got the vertical stripes instead of the horizontal ones, you have got one part right. Vertical stripes do make a person look slimmer, however, the spacing between the stripes in integral to the slimming illusion. Clothes with little spacing add to your slimming effect. Stripes with more spacing between the stripes don’t work as well as ones with little spacing if your ultimate aim is to get clothes which make you look leaner.
Light colors look good with darker ones. But should the top be of a lighter or darker color? Similarly, should the bottom be darker or lighter? The answer depends on your body type. Dark colors give an illusion of leaner body while light colors make you look wider. If you have broad shoulders then go for dark colors for top. If you have heavy hips or thighs, dark colored bottoms should be worn. Women with pear shaped body should opt for light top and dark bottom.
If you are seeking clothes which make you look thinner then checks are a big no! Simple block checks make you look wider so if you don’t want to look wider then avoid them. You can always go for clothes with diagonally placed lines which don’t make you look broader rather do the contrary. So all those women out there who think that clothes make you look ‘fat’, you haven’t tried out these diagonal lines yet.
Clothes can give an instant confidence boost. The way you carry your clothes is important too. If you know that you look good, you feel good. Women want a variety of clothes but the ones which make them happy. These little tricks and you can perfect your wardrobe, and remain happy forever. Get rid of those clothes which don’t suit you and buy the ones which do. Another reason to go shopping, for all those shopoholics out there!
