Looking Slimmer With Color Block and Illusion Dresses

Posted in: ,

I love retail therapy sometimes, but I'm not a big fan of shopping when it comes to dresses, because I lack the patience to sift through a gazillion clothes looking for just the ones that I'll like or that'll suit me. I usually go to petites and my size and pick any or all that catch my fancy or which fit within my budget. It's a hit and miss affair, but if I'm not OK with the results, I return it to the shop post haste. Most times, I do get what I find wearable.

However, during my last once in a blue moon trip, the good dress gods must have been smiling down at me. This was among the few dresses I got and when I premiered it last weekend, I was a happy bunny. The dress was comfortable and I love the bright colors though I usually prefer more muted colors.

I'm not a stylista or a fashionista by any means but I was motivated to put up this post after reading this post on Bella Naija which talks about how one can streamline their figure with the shape of the clothes, patterns and even accessories. According to the writer, "doing this with colour can be even easier and you can be creative with it. Putting certain colours in certain areas has the ability to create the illusion of some parts being larger or smaller."

This is the only color block or even illusion dress I have, and I see why they're so popular. According to Atala who's like my human mirror, it hid the love handles, and highlighted all the curves that he wanted to see. Especially from the back, lol...

What do you think of color block or illusion outfits?


  1. hahahahah! I gotta admit, the dress looks good on you! I really like it...Lol at Atala's comment....You should have shown us proof!

  2. TheChronicled Wait, "Illusion Dress That Makes One LOOK SLIMMER" I lol in illusion. Who is fooling who? The person making the dresses or the slim wannabes wearing them knowing fully well that the dress can't fool the scale?
