Spring is finally here so it's time to inject some colour into your wardrobe. It doesn't matter if you want to go green, blue or pink - here are our top tips on how to look slimmer in bright colours.
Fancy adding a bit of sunshine yellow in your wardrobe but aren’t too sure if it will make you look bigger? Well it’s time to make your friends green with envy with these bright, colourful clothes that will slim your figure rather than making you look bigger.
When in doubt, black, navy and muted tones will always make problem areas look slimmer – but let’s face it that can get a bit boring. One of Fashion team’s top tips on how to look slimmer in bright colours is to actually add a colour pop to the slimest part of your body.
Pear shaped ladies can try teaming a tangy orange top over a dark skirt or jeans in order to draw attention to their upper half. Or busty ladies can try wearing colourful jeans in order to detract from your problem area.
But this isn’t the only way you can slim your shape with colour. Picking the right shape for you is also key. When shopping for bright colours be sure to look out for: A wrap top is a great option for any figure as they will help trim a big tum but also flatter a big bust.
Wardrobe staples like tapered trousers are great for a colourful wardrobe. Or even tailored jackets that nip you in at the waist.
And when all else fails, you can always add a colour pop to your outfit with a pair of bright shoes and a bold bag!
