How to Avoid Fashion Disasters-Part 2

As a continuation to my previous post, here are the things you should do with complementing colors. Because of the emerging trends of loud colors today, I tend to see almost every woman wearing and combining dramatic colors. But instead of getting my approving nod, I can only give my disapproving disgust. Some women will just really have to follow the trend without really considering if it suits them too.

So, I can only approve of the following tips:

How to wear colours

  • Only wear shiny fabrics and bright colours on areas that you are sure can stand up to being in the limelight.
  • If you have sallow skin, dark circles or bags, don’t wear black near your face, it only draws attention to it.
  • Combining black with bright colours makes the black look boring and the colours look cheap.
  • If you’re petite or of larger build, avoid a dramatic contrast between top and bottom as this will cut you in half.
