The exceptions

There are exceptions to every rule, and so here. Some designers dare occasionally break the rules of colour harmony for example Navy Blue and Black to combine. Christian Lacroix and Vivienne Westwood have thereby proved and shown that these two colours can make quite a successful ensemble the greatest courage. The secret of successful combinations? Accessories and motif prints! A black dress with blue flowers or dots, black tights for a blue dress. It depends primarily on the classical outfit to give an original touch.

Tricks for a sleek-line

- If you will feel comfortable in your skin, you first perceive you as a person in your vision, not your curves.
- Black and dark colours are particularly well suited to hide curves and reduce the body volume visually.
- Accessories and outfit should be in harmony with the body stature: Select impressive jewellery, volume hair styles, etc. to create the right proportions.
- Especially if your lower body area (thighs, hips …), you must be rounded to draw attention to your upper body, e.g. with shoulder pads or striking accessories.
- Select rather than wide right figure-hugging clothes.
- The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in your own skin. They are found in super sexy tops with spaghetti straps and love vibrant colours? Then do not let that stop your fashion desires to give in!
