How to Flatter Your Figure With Color

Flatter Your Figure With Color

We're thrilled to present our favorite InStyle story here on Fab!

Colorful pieces will not only brighten your wardrobe, they can also flatter your shape. Whether you want to accentuate those curves or look slimmer, here are three easy ways you can use color to play up your best assets. For a highlighted waist, pair an LBD with a bright belt like Gabrielle Union. The bold color against a dark backdrop draws eyes to the narrowest part of your midsection. Want to elongate your legs? Place the belt a little bit higher on your waist. For more hot color tips, check out the April issue of InStyle, on newsstands now — and click on for the other two tips to flatter your figure with color.
