4. Misconception: short pants are good only on tall women.
In fact: Shortened pants look nice and flirty, and they’re not just for owners of long legs.
Stylists recommend: Ankle pants of bright colors can visually shorten the body in contrast. Short ladies should give preference to models of calm shades with high waists and wear them with heels.
5. Misconception: oversized fits everyone.
In fact: Most ladies will look more elegant in voluminous things, but there are those who should be careful about choosing such clothes.
Stylists recommend: Oversized clothes perfectly suit tall and thin women as they add fragility to the image. For short girls, as well as for owners of nonstandard bodies, it’s important to balance proportions and avoid wearing more than one voluminous item.
6. Misconception: a wide belt “creates” a waist, making the body look slimmer.
In fact: A wide or bright belt, designed to focus attention on the waist, works in the opposite way for ladies with excess weight: it draws attention to problem areas.
Stylists recommend: Curvy women had better choose knee-length or slightly longer dresses where the waistline will be moved up or down. Dresses with a V-neck will help to emphasize the bust and visually lengthen the neck.
7. Misconception: it’s bad taste to combine more than 3 colors in a look.
In fact: The rule of “no more than 3 colors” was invented for those who follow a dress code and don’t want to stand out from the crowd. If you have a sense of style and harmony, you can safely combine more than 3 colors in one image.
Stylists recommend: Choose clothes in which some specific color will prevail. The remaining shades should be additional to the base shade and shouldn’t block it. Keep in mind the rules for combining colors.
