I am part of the evolve your style program and I have an issue for you to address. If you’ve already written a post regarding this, could you share the link? I am a v shape with a somewhat short waist. I am 5’4 so slightly petite. I want to have my upper body visually recede and draw attention to my lower body as this is where I am slimmest. I have really been noticing people who do this well and not so well.
My coloring is warm and zesty. light khaki or beige pants seem to work and also white pants. However if I want the top to recede do I look for shirts that don’t have pattern because they will stand out and be the focal point of the outfit?
Do I need a solid top or does it just have to be a darker color to recede?
Many colors in my pallet are bright, and I like them. However, how do I wear colors around my face in tops yet have my upper body recede and look thinner? Horizontal detail on top, possibly? Am I wishing for magic here or is this possible?
Thanks for any suggestions.
How to Make a Light Colour Recede
The first point to consider is that even with light colours which are more naturally advancing, just a small difference in value will make one colour less obvious and more receding than the other.
