WHAT PATTERN TO CHOOSE TO LOOK SLIMMER OR FOR MORE VOLUME?
This week we’ll talk about patterns!
Which one is the best to enhance your shape?
Patterns are deeply tied to personality: flower patterns are linked to girls with a romantic, girly style, while animalier is for a more aggressive and daring style.
Of course, the choice of patterns is 90% of the times based on the trend on the moment. For example, during the 50s polka dots were wild, while paisley was strong in the 70s.
All patterns are our allies in creating optical illusions with the proportions of our bodies. The key features to give harmony to our figure are the dimension of the pattern and its density (whether the drawings are close to each other or distant).
Patterns usually help creating volume when the print is large, or hiding some extra weight when the print is small.
As we said in previous articles, vertical stripes make the figure look more slender while horizontal ones add to the volume. Curve lines, on the other hand, enhance the curves of the body and make it look softer.
You love or you hate it, but it surely never goes unnoticed!
It’s one of the hardest to wear, the intersection of stripes and squares makes a “crowded” effect and adds a lot of volume.
