Keep It Simple with Patterns
Patterns can work to your advantage if worn correctly, but they should be scaled to your body. Miniscule patterns seem to disappear when placed on larger frames, and oversized designs will visually inflate your body, making you seem larger than you are. Use carefully proportioned patterns to your advantage by wearing them on areas where you want people to look. If you have a heavy chest and want to draw eyes away from it, you might not want to put on that busy floral top your friend gave you for your birthday. A column of colorful, etched bracelets, on the other hand, will call attention to your fabulous arms.
