Why Black Makes You Look Larger

Never wear black if you are going to be outside or in a well lit room. Black against a light background makes you stand out and appear larger than you are. Kind of like dripping chocolate ice cream on a white shirt.

So what's the best and worst colors for making yourself look trim? Best colors are ones that match your skin tone. Not the color of your eyes or hair like many believe.

Everything being equal, which it never is, yellow will make most anyone appear larger. Green is a safe color for making you appear more trim.

Simple small prints or solid colors on not too tight fitting garments are always a good choice. High heels make you taller and that also adds to a slimming appearance.

Look your best and you feel your best. You deserve it. Take some time to think about your appearance. It's fun and time well invested.

what lies before us are
small matters compared
to what lies within us."
