Geometric patterns and optical illusion

Stepping out for church...
Stepping out for church…

I love clean geometric lines…don’t you?  No worries, you will if you understand the optical illusions associated with geometric lines. When used correctly, you can deceive the eyes using geometric patterns by employing…a play on lines.

Geometric lines create an optical illusion. A few small tweaks in the right areas can create fashion magic and transform the way you look.  For example, vertical lines will create a slimming effect on any part of the body; the closer together the lines are, the greater the illusion.

Horizontal lines, on the other hand can make wider parts of the body appear even wider. So, note to self, if you are endowed with large breasts, it’ll do you well to choose vertical lined tops, unless, of course, you are looking to accentuate your breasts, tastefully…nothing wrong with that!

If the horizontal line cuts across the waist, it gives the illusion of being wider and even shorter. Also, if you have wide hips or thighs, a wider neckline will create a focal point on the shoulder area and make you appear taller and slimmer…mhmm, because the eye will focus on the line. Diagonal lines, like vertical lines create a slimming illusion.

So, don’t be bashful, give it a whirl I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised…

    You really did mix the prints beautifully! Also love the pop of color from the shoes to match the skirt hemline.
