So many of us are struggling daily with trying to loose weight or look a bit taller. Let me share a secret with you: for visual appearance there is no difference in between these two goals, that’s why high heels works for both! But what if you don’t like them, or you can’t wear them for this special occasion or even more – you want to maximise the effect? I have something for you today, which is called “Visual corrections tricks!”
Let’s look on examples together?
Create vertical lines by using color. They visually add a few сm. The simplest way is to wear a blouse and trousers in a similar color and add a long contrasting colored coat on top! That way, you will not only play with proportional illusions but also create a long vertical line.
Wear soft, flowing skirts. In such skirts, the legs look longer. Of course, high heels, pointed-toe shoes – all those create a lighter silhouette. All tricks which make you look visually slimmer make you also look taller.
Always try to make a “2/5 vs. 3/5” proportion! If the actual shape of your item won’t let you do it, use color blocks to create the same optical illusions.
If you create a look with “3/5 vs. 2/5” or “1/2 vs. 1/2” proportion, it will “cut” your body visually. It doesn’t mean it’s wrong and you can’t wear it. These outfits could be highly stylish. The only thing you must remember is that these proportions would visually add a few extra kilos or even sizes to your silhouette.
