You will read in in so many Fashion magazines that black is slimming and flattering – and that you need at least one little black dress and a pair of black pants in your wardrobe. Don’t believe it, it’s a myth.
Take note – Black only works really well if it’s YOUR colour.
Black is considered Cool, Deep and Bright. This doesn’t work as well for people with Warm, Light or Muted colouring.
So, if you have Warm, Light or Muted colouring you should definitely avoid black close to your face.
I’m not saying go into your wardrobe and throw everything out! What I suggest you to do is to find out what colours suit you best, and then slowly integrate them into your existing wardrobe.
Often when I visit a client and we go into her wardrobe, I find the majority of her garments consist of black – top and tees, jackets and dresses. When I look across the room at most functions I attend it’s a sea of black – women seem to wear black on black with very little else standing out!
When I Asked A Few Ladies Why They Are Drawn To Black, The Answers Were All Very Similar;
You don’t need black to make you feel and appear slimmer. Wearing the right cuts and styles, ones that suit your personality and body shape, will do the trick.
That little black dress doesn’t have to be black it can be red, green, blue – or whatever colour makes you feel amazing.
As you may all know red is my feelgood colour. What’s yours ?
