Not only black: 5 non-obvious colours in clothes that visually slim you down
Colours in clothing can imitate optical illusions. Dark colours (black, navy, dark khaki, etc.) absorb light, making you look slimmer. Light (white, pastel colours and too bright shades) - reflect light, which adds volume.
This can be used if you want to adjust the parameters of the figure. In the OBOZREVATEL material, we talk about the colours of the outfit that stretch the silhouette and mask the excess.
1. Emerald green
A bright, yet calm colour. It is associated with luxury, adds an accent to the image, and also visually slims you down. Silhouetted outfits that emphasise the curves of the body look especially impressive. Emerald is best combined with neutral grey, black or white.
2. True Red by Pantone
This is a classic neutral colour that "removes volume" as well as black. It is neither cold nor warm. It suits women of all colour types and ages. We recommend wearing dresses or suits with True Red. This will create a total look that will visually make you taller.
3. Navy blue
Navy blue is the second colour after black that removes excess volume. The deep shade is suitable for all skin tones and is appropriate for both everyday looks and special occasions.
Chocolate is not as "heavy" as black. It makes the image more non-trivial. It is an ideal shade for suits, silhouette dresses and loose-fitting T-shirts. It can be used as the main colour or diluted with contrasting tones, combined with a palette of browns from mocha to caramel.
We are sure that you did not expect to see pink on this list. Fuchsia not only makes the look interesting, but also slightly adjusts the silhouette. It is better to combine this shade with accessories of a muted colour. Ideal pair: green, grey, black, purple, white.
