Diagonals - Weekend Style Challenge

 

Diagonals are action lines – they create movement, and interest. They move your eye from one point to another (as I discussed here).

This weekend, your challenge is to find some diagonals and use them in an outfit.

Add diagonals to your outfits to create interest and movement
The shrug creates a narrowing diagonal across my shoulders and draws attention to my face. The dress has a long diagonal which draws the eye up my body.

 

 

There are lots of different places you’ll find diagonals, from necklines (V) to collars, as well as finding them in some other garments such as waterfall cardigans.

 

The hem of the waterfall cardigan creates a diagonl, as does the V created by the way I've belted it

Notice how they move the eye around your body. See if they are upwards or downwards diagonals (move left to right or right to left when you are looking at the garment, the mirror will lie to you!).

You can even find them in patterns too!
