Our body is the only one we have and therefore we should cherish and accept it just the way it is, slim or fat, short or tall. For those interested in creating the appearance of a slimmer body, one can use a few simple optical illusions.
Optical illusion no. 1 – Wearing dark colors. We all knows that black gives the appearance of less volume, but this is also true about all dark colors! Dresses in dark blue, dark green, grays etc will create an illusion of a slimmer body. Further more, all dark colors when placed next to a light color will give the illusion of a slimmer outline. If you are heavier on the top, wear a darker color on top. If you are heavier around the bottom- wear a darker color at the bottom.
Optical illusion no. 2 – Wearing vertical lines. Use vertical lines to your advantage, for example with a long crease down your trousers, in vertical striped shirts or skirts, in the vertical lines in your stocking and so on. The closer the lines are to one another, the stronger the slimming effect achieved.
