A taller and slimmer look with one accessory!

Often we turn to black clothing pieces to help us look taller and slimmer. Wearing black is not entirely a solution, plus as we get older, it is a harsh colour to wear. 

There are other ways to help achieve a taller and slender look. This is where the simple accessory of a necklace comes in! 

So, how does it work? 

1. When we wear solid colours on a large oversized tunic or shirt or sweater or dress, our eyes see a a chunk of colour. A long necklace helps to break up the chunk of colour. 

2. A long necklace essentially divides the upper/lower torso of the body into two sections which forces the eye to look vertically instead of horizontally. 

3. A shorter chunky necklace can also be very effective as an accessory because it draws the eye up to the face away from the lower parts of our bodies which may have some unflattering features. 

4. A contrasting type of necklace does the best job with moving the eye to focus on your jewellery to break up the solid blocks of colour and help you look taller and thinner. 

So, don't hesitate to put on a long necklace with any outfit... it will change your look!
