A new geometry is taking shape, one that is
not bound by trends but rather is influenced by the female silhouette – a
silhouette that embraces a woman’s curves. It is an unspoken desire for all
women. Whether in tailored options like a crisp white shirt and a pair of
skinny jeans or a streamlined sheath dress, we all want clothes that flatter our
bodies. It is a given.
This cleverly colour-blocked Herve Leger skirt accomplishes just that. The eye is instantly drawn to the angular shapes
of the nude panels against the negative space of the black, providing much
needed shape to your lower body.
Sometimes it isn’t just about the clothes.
A dynamic block like this Zagliani Vanity Cube clutch could do wonders to
deceive the eye. It’s a perspective. Small bags help to give the illusion of
longer torso, especially when carried with a thin chain shoulder strap. If
you’re a petite woman, this crossbody clutch would be the perfect size for you.
Plus, this patchwork combination of gold, silver, and bronze would easily match
your favourite white blouse and jeans combo or an all-black outfit.
In a daring mash-up, prints and graphic
lines merge to form a sophisticated linear grace. Note the symmetrical lines of
this shift dress forming the axis of the dress silhouette? The narrow A-line is
at work; perfect for when you want some breathing space between fabric and
skin. For the best effect, match a thin black or white belt to cinch in your waist
to further define this silhouette. Alternatively, wear it as it is with a chic
pair of heels and a solid-coloured bag.
Geometry in fashion doesn’t have to be complicated;
you just got to find a way to make it work for you. A shape is either angular
or not. If visual colour blocks aren’t your cup of tea, tone down a notch and
wear them as accessories. If metallics aren’t your taste, sport a rose gold
bracelet or necklace. If you’re afraid of bold colours, opt for coloured
gemstones to complement your skin tone. Subtlety is key here and with such a
plethora of fashion options available to us, we might as well strive to embrace
