"Have you ever seen a happy goth?" Carson Kressley thinks not, and states "I think everyone needs color to feel good. Too many women rely on head-to-toe black as a form of camouflage." On those days that they're feeling fat or bloated many women skip color and reach for all black. The reality is that any deep hue can be slimming when worn monochromatically - so instead of black, reach for plum, gray or chocolate brown for a chic head-to-toe look. Then add in accents of one of your best vibrant hues, such as violet, turquoise or fuchsia, with your accessories to draw the eye upward and bring light to your face. Here are some of my favorite ways to do just that:
1/ A scarf in a great print or a gorgeous jewel tone is wonderful for framing your face with color. A black scarf will do little to nothing to brighten your complexion and I strongly recommend you avoid wearing one.
2/ Wear a gorgeous necklace and/or earrings in one of your best shades. Bonus points if it includes gemstones, which will lighten and brighten your face.
3/ A pop of color near your face in the form of a camisole peeping out from your neckline is another great way to draw the eye upward. Keep your clothing in a deep monochromatic shade and add contrast with a camisole in one of your best brights and you'll look gorgeous!
Choose a color that looks great on you and wear it well. You'll look slim, cheerful and chic!
