The Lies Of The Lines 2: Going For A Slender Look

BEST TRENDS FOREVER
 
 
As we have discovered in Part 1, lines carefully arranged on a dress can make you appear much different from what you really are. Lines can make you look fat, slim, or completely change the appearance of your body proportions. Today we are, once again, talking how lines can make you look more slender than you really are.

And so, we, once again start with a question. Look at the diagram below to decide for yourself which one of the rectangles below looks the most slender?


 BEST TRENDS FOREVER

 

To a typical eye, rectangle 1 will always look the most slender. The reason, once again, is the presence of uninterrupted lines that help your brain to "see" the body inside of the lines as separate from the body outside of the lines.

To help illustrate this simple trick, we compared a photograph of a colorblocked dress from osap.com (B) to a digitally altered white dress (A). Once again, you don't need to be a trained stylist to see that the dress with the vertical lines does not only add to the shape of the body, but makes the model appear much slimmer than she does on the digitally altered photograph (A).

It is also important to note that to achieve this particular effect, the lines of the dress have to be uninterrupted. Interrupted vertical lines may create a completely opposite affect, as our brain will be "adding up" the interrupted lines together for a dress that appears much wider.

Good luck! Happy styling and be sure that Part 3 of the "Lies Of The Lines" will be posted very soon!
