The Truth about Fashion

Fashion plays a major role in today's society. But who can keep up? There are plenty of options and trends than ever before. And, the key to looking great and shopping smart is being aware of the facts over fiction in today's styles.

In this article, we are going to share a few of the essential tips from the Woolite Fashion Forum new booklet, "Dispelling the Myths about Fashion and Fabric Care".

True or False?

1. Monotones can make you look like you shed up to 10 pounds.
True - You will look pounds thinner if you dress in one tone with just a splash of colour. Create an unbroken line by dressing in a neutral shade like black, navy or beige. Also, adding color with a bright jacket or accessories draws the eye away from your trouble spots. A neutral-toned, longer tailored jacket over a colorful tank or turtleneck can also be slimming.

2. Layers can make you look thinner.
False - This is a big mistake you make when you tie sweaters around your waist to hide your problem areas. Wearing clothing that is baggy or even too tight will accentuate heavier figures. Most women look beautiful in structured, not oversized, clothes. Fitted jackets, tops with scoop necks and blouses with ruffled edges will create a more slimming effect than layers.

3. Your Shoes and Handbags should always match.
False - This is a tale from the past. The days of matching all your accessories are over. You no longer have to worry about finding the perfect shade of green to match your green suit. Don't be afraid to pair a pink clutch when wearing black stilettos. The spring is going to be filled with bright accessories so take a chance on color this season.
