Bella Petite Magazine celebrity fashion editor Ann Lauren’s 2016 Winter’s vibrant color palette transforms to Spring in four (4) easy ways for petite women to elongate their stature! A Winter bouquet of fresh new colors will help brighten up your wardrobe.
A color is an excellent tool for creating optical illusions: that flatter your frame. Vibrant colors enhance your personality!
1. DRESS IN MONOCHROMATIC COLORS.
Wearing the same color from head-to-toe automatically makes a petite woman look taller and has a slimming effect. Go for long lines of color with sporty separates and dresses in this season’s hottest color stories.
Choose from spicy shades of green, purple, paprika, curry, and mustard; sorbet hues including raspberry, pink champagne, periwinkle, and pale yellow; or the tranquil blues and greens of the sky and sea. This season’s popular trends offer an all-white palette to lively dramatic colors that offers petite women wonderful, monochrome options that flatters all shapes and sizes.
2. PUT OUTFITS TOGETHER IN TONAL COMBINATIONS
Achieve the same body lengthening effect as a monochromatic dressing by wearing shades of the same family of color or colors of the same intensity. Pair black, gray, navy blue with pale blue, beige, and ivory.
Romantic looks in soft neutral shades of gray, ecru, tan, and ivory will create the illusion of height on a shorter frame.
Use color to maximize your assets and minimize your flaws.
Wear warm colors like this season’s hottest color green! Also, red, orange, and yellow will attract plenty attention.
Cool colors including green, blue, and violet visually minimize heavier areas.
3. WEAR UNBROKEN LINES OF COLOR
When putting together a three (3) ensemble wear matching colors to the inside or the outside of the body and create a streamlined style.
Regardless, of whether you are a fan of matching outfits, please keep in mind that this wardrobing concept always slims and elongates a petite woman’s proportions.
4. Create unbroken lines of color to the inside:
Match your top with a bottom in the same color. Choose a jacket or layering piece in a contrasting color or pattern.
For example: Try pairing a cream sequin skirt, or silver sequined skirt with a tucked-in sheer shirt, or crisp white top. Add a white blazer to complete your look. We guarantee you will look totally sexy!
