Today’s post will be delicate, subtle and supergirly 😀 It’s all thanks to Pantone company and “their” colors for 2016. But let’s start from the beginning 🙂 Pantone is an American company that has its headquarter in New Yersey. It mapped out a unique color scale that serves as a color’s model and is called the Pantone scale 🙂 Each color has its own number and thanks to that companies that work together can precisely name the colors of products (for example a printout). Each year Pantone chooses a color (or, as it happened for the first time now, colors) that, according to them, will be the most fashionable and HOT in a given season 🙂 In 2015 Marsala was the one that ruled, in 2016 it is replaced by Rose Quartz and Serenity (the color of pure, blue sky). Beautiful shades, am I right? 🙂 I can’t wait for spring! Besides… Why should we wait for it? We can start looking for a fashionable dress now 🙂 Sesese 😀
A. You need to remember about one, essential rule. The colors of a season are one thing, YOUR colors are another. Pantone gives an inspiration, but if you choose the shade that is a little bit warmer, colder or lighter, no fashion faux pas will be committed and your skin will look more attractive. Fashion is not maths, you don’t have to be so precise. Be inspired, have fun and don’t be afraid of subtle variation of rules and trends 😉
B. The colors of the season are quite bright, and, as we all know, bright colors make things look bigger and eye catching. It doesn’t mean that if you have bigger shoulders you should resign from a sky blue top. You should just learn a few tricks for certain figure types that I will describe later on.
C. If you have a few additional pounds (wider hips, or a little bit more on your belly), wear non-transparent, thick materials on these body parts. It will make them less noticeable, and you’ll feel more comfortable 😉
D. I described the kinds of dresses for particular figure types HERE. Today I’ll focus on the patterns and color tricks 😀
Let’s begin and choose dresses! 🙂
1. X FIGURE
The main rule that you should write on your mirror with your lipstick is to ACCENTUATE YOUR WAIST! The dresses need to have belts, elastics and incisions. Whatever that accentuates this body part. If you want to wear patterns, then they should be evenly distributed. Big dots or flowers make body parts that they are covering look bigger, so if you want to be a skinny X, wear those in the area of hips and breasts. Accentuate the proportional body structure. Plain chemises and princess dresses will look great.
2. A FIGURE
You have a beautiful top of a figure: neck, waistline, cleavage. You need to accentuate it! All the patterns should be located there, the bottom of your outfit should stay even or darker. Of course, you can wear flowered or striped dresses, but then you should also wear a beautiful, eye catching necklace or earrings. Just do whatever you can to attract the attention to the top of your body 😉 You fell in love with a dress with a bright, sky blue bottom? It can make your hips look wider, so it should be in an A shape that will make them look slimmer. It will do the trick 😉
3. Y FIGURE
I wanna see your legs! Exactly! Don’t be scared to show them 😉 Even in winter put colorful patterned tights on 24/7. In order to strengthen the WOW effect, place all the checks, dots, and stripes (especially the horizontal ones) at the bottom of the dress. If you’re thin and your breasts are small, you can go for cuts that are buttoned below the cleavage, but the bigger your breasts are, and the closer to plus size you are, the farther away from the neck your cleavage should be 😉 Unbutton the dress, look for V shapes. Blue and pink at the bottom of the dress will make your hips look more round, and draw attention to your legs.

7. I FIGURE
Well, if anyone it’s you who can get her inspirations straight form catwalks. After all, you’ve got model’s figures 😉 But… If you want to look even more beautiful than it’s possible look for dresses in which the top is contrasts with the bottom. Optically it’ll shorten your figure a bit, and will make it look more round. What would you say for a navy top and pink bottom, or a patterned top, and a light flared bottom? Sounds great, doesn’t it? 😉 You’ll also look great with embellishments around your waist (with a huge bow, for example, just as in the hot look presented below). If you like big patterns in pop art style, don’t hesitate to wear them! After all, faint heart never won fair lady 😉
