I wear a lot of black and have no plans to change that in the near future. The color black absorbs light so it disguises lumps and bumps; and therefore trumps all other colors for looking sleek. End of post? Not so fast!
There are other colors, fabrics and surface textures that do a great job of concealing puffy areas; when used together, they should not be overlooked.
- Choose rich soft neutrals and jewel tones
- Avoid weaves and textures that create bulk
- Choose a fabric with a matte surface quality for areas you want to "fade" (down-play)
- Choose a fabric with a shiny surface quality for areas you want to "focus" (draw attention to)
What's your favorite color and fabric "when black is not enough?"
