Today's look is super fun and colorful, perfect for summer! You all know how much I love color, it makes me happy. There have been many studies that have proved that color helps enhance our positive emotions and when it's darker, such as the winter months or when it rains, we are more likely to become depressed or sad. So, I try to surround myself with as much color as possible and I love challenging myself in creating looks that feature an assortment of such, that truly blend beautifully in a way that hopefully inspires all of you. One of my favorite colors to wear during the summer is orange. I feel that it's a color that looks fantastic on all skin and hair tones; it also makes the skin appear more luminescent, in my opinion.
As for the body shapes, there are a few things I would suggest you keep in mind if you are an apple shape. The kind of top I'm wearing adds volume to the upper body, as you can see. If you are concerned with adding unwanted additional volume to your bust and midsection, which tends to be the largest areas for this particular shape, I would suggest you select a different style top, such as the one in the set I created below. The front wrap will prevent any additional volume from being added, while maintaining your natural shape. Also, since this shape tends to have thinner legs in comparison to the upper body, I would suggest you consider a lighter wash denim rinse. The reason is that the darker the denim, the leaner your legs will appear and it can make the upper body appear larger. I'm wearing a pairing that would be ideal for the pear shape, but any of the remaining shapes, rectangular or hourglass, could wear any of the two options I provided.
I hope you found this post helpful and that it gave you an outfit idea! I'll see you all back here tomorrow for another post :)
