Black and white can never go wrong. And that's
exactly what the monochrome cool school preaches. Take a cue from them and go
with a white top and black pants combo or vice versa. For a seemingly simple
silhouette with minimal colours, experiment with different shapes and forms to
make your outfit pop. The best part? You have the fail-safe option of picking
out strong-coloured bags and accessories for a delightful burst of colour!
Boxy on top and fitted at the bottom or the
other way round, contrast and balance is a simple styling tip you need to know.
Think a structured blouse paired with fitted jeans or a pencil skirt. And if
you reverse this, a pair of culottes or palazzos matched with a form-fitting
top. When the the silhouette is exaggerated, the new silhouette takes centre
stage, decidedly covering up your less-than-flattering bits. Tone down on
colours and let this high fashion silhouette shine!
The A-line silhouette is one of the most
flattering silhouettes out there. It might even be your most favoured
silhouette without you even knowing. This silhouette starts off as being fitted
at the shoulders and gradually widens towards the hemline. This Victoria Victoria Beckham dress is a perfect example. The halter-neck draws the eye to
your neckline and visually broadens your shoulders while that cinch at the
waist gives shape to the dress. For added effect, throw over a fitted jacket
and you'll be office and dinner-ready!
