Style and Fit
The most common mistake is to buy a particular style that you absolutely love, but does not complement your body type.
White is a neutral color you can mix it with any color. Here are some ideas for this summer,
Wear white with navy, white with yellow, white with red, with green and black.
Do you have a personal style?
Have you identify what colors or prints look better on you?
Here's an idea, If your shape is small to medium do not wear big bold prints they will overpower you, instead wear delicate prints that will enhance your body. Make a statement with a bold color, shape, or print accessories such as shoes, scarfs, purses, bags, earrings or necklace.
If your shape is Large, wear bold prints, dark colors, avoid small prints they will just make you look out of proportion, balance your body shape by using medium to big prints, choose woven fabrics avoid knits.
