How To Look Skinny With Color Blocking


The average American woman is 5’2” and weighs 167 lbs. This statistic either makes you feel great and want to strut your stuff or makes you want to crawl into a deep, dark hole. Either way the secret to looking and feeling your best is understanding how to dress your body for the image you are trying to achieve. One of my favorite trendy tricks is colorblocking. Colorblocking may be a scary term clouded by visions of pinks, oranges, reds and corals all in one outfit but no need to have a panic attack. I am talking about a sophisticated spin on color blocking that accentuates all the right places.

Colorblock dresses come in all sorts of shapes and colors but I love any dress where black panels hug all the way down your sides. This look is not only chic but it provides the illusion of a tinier waist and hips. The black panel essentially acts as a flaw eraser and destroys anything that negatively affects your self-confidence. You could call it magic!

This style of dress not only flatters but also is extremely versatile. It would be great for a holiday party this winter with some glitzy jewelry and fabulous stilettos or a statement piece at the office with a power blazer and tights.

No matter the occasion you will exude confidence in these slimming colorblock dresses, I guarantee you will be a showstopper!
