COLOURS AND PATTERNS: THE EFFECTS ON OUR SILHOUETTE

header blog.jpg

First of all, the ultimate silhouette-enhancing trick from our stylists goes like this: the best way to forget what you dislike about your body is to focus on what you like the most. In fact, when we highlight what we like, we don't even need to hide what we dislike, because the OUMPH effect is automatic! So, what is your favorite part of yourself? Your face, your breasts, your buttocks or your legs? Come on! Be kind with yourself: you’re gorgeous! #BodyPositivity

 

BLACK

Black is a must-have in your wardrobe. It’s a great base and it has a slimming effect. But don’t give all the credit to the colour itself. The fabric has a lot to do with it. For example, an old cotton t-shirt or a viscose top may be black, but it will not have the same advantageous effect as a structured poplin, leather, silk or even knit pieces. So yes, black is a great choice for hiding what you like the least about your body, but please don't stick to a total black look! Colour remains the best way to highlight what you like the most about your silhouette and brighten your eyes. Double win!

DARK COLOURS

Like black, dark colours have the same slimming power while being a bit more original. Navy, khaki, brown or gray are therefore excellent options for a more structured effect. Why? Simply because dark colors absorb the light instead of reflecting it.

BRIGHT AND PALE COLOURS

On the other end of the spectrum, bright or pale colours attract light and therefore put the emphasis where YOU want it! Are you proud of your strong chest or, on the contrary, you have a small chest and you want to emphasize it? Choose your favorite bright color and wear it on your upper body. If you want to show your cute butt (#feelingyourself), then opt for pale pants or a very vibrant skirt. Be bold!

SOFT PATTERNS

Small patterns like polka dots, tartan or the tone-on-tone one’s are a great way to energize an outfit while keeping it sober. For example, under a jacket, add a camisole with a small pattern that will discreetly catch the eye, without accentuating your breast. Same thing for plaid pants! If you are more into a sober and timeless style, see the discreet patterns as a great addition to your wardrobe.

WILD PATTERNS

We love the bold patterns for their originality! They instantly brighten up an outfit and automatically catch the eye! Besides, it is incorrect to think that a large pattern has an amplifying effect. It simply attracts attention! So, ladies with beautiful curves, please do not hesitate to wear some to highlight them! Flower, aztec, tropical or animal prints: have fun!

LINEAR PATTERNS

Stripes are timeless! Important note: this simple pattern CAN and SHOULD be worn by everyone, regardless of their silhouette. Obviously, the vertical stripes have a lengthening effect, while the horizontal ones have a widening effect. However, it is more the cut of a garment that has a real effect on the silhouette. The thin nautical style stripes will be very elegant in a sweater version or underneath a jacket. The wider stripes have a much more striking effect and are ideal to create a balanced silhouette. It’s time to choose!
