FASHION AND STYLE: BALANCING ACT

Balancing “volume” over “volume” can be a little tricky. If  you don't do it right you end up looking frumpy and it can visually add pounds to your silhouette! The key to doing it right is too choose the right pieces. You want to make sure you pick pieces that highlight the smallest parts of your body frame. My oversized pants are fitted at the hips and waistline showing off my hips/waist. Because the pants are so wide they actually make my waist look smaller. To  highlight the top detail of the pants I chose a sweat shirt that was somewhat cropped, with the hem of the top ending right above the pants, framing the pants perfectly. Pops of color, with my necklace and bag complement the black and white outfit and my shoes add the perfect finishing touch to make this look the ultimate balancing act of color and volume!
