8 Tips on colour styling to make you look slimmer.

When styling yourself or you are looking for the next outfit to choose, it is important to consider your choice of colours (colour styling) especially when you want to hide some details on your body shape or when you want to make some areas conspicuous.

Black they say is a colour that makes you slimmer while white colour gives you the opposite effect.

Everyone has that black skirt, trouser or dress in their closet with the main aim of playing safe when combining colours but let me also make you know that black never fails to make you look slim and elegant.

Darker shades of colors like blue, purple and brown can also help to hide flaws and create a slimming illusion.

On the other hand, lighter colors, like white and khaki, can make you look like you added and give the illusion of a larger frame.

Have u ever entered a room painted in white? you will notice it appears bigger when compared to the another room of the same size painted in a darker colour.

In the same way, some colours make your body appear slimmer and some will make you look like you added extra weight.

So, let’s go on this journey of colour styling to identify the outfit colours we need to accentuate our various body types.

Tips to choosing colours for your body type.

2 Do you have a big tummy which you want to conceal? Wear dark clothes to conceal the part as wearing a bright colour will only make it appear wider than it is already.
