The design lines of the variations in the color block tops provide a great lesson in figure flattery. First up is this past Sunday's featured pullover top, Breezy, with a loose fit, boat neck, cap sleeves and a horizontal line across the bust. None of those is a good choice for anyone to look slimmer. Breezy is all horizontal lines, except for the diagonal sleeve line that cuts across the meatiest part of the upper arm.
So, we've got Sunrise with many diagonal lines in play. The triangular color block on the body nicely echoes the v-neckline. The sleeveless trim fit features the form, without clinging to it. Is it a perfect design? Definitely not. The V-neck is a little high, and I don't care for the way the triangle cuts across the bust. But, this would be a great design for those figures which are more generous in the hips - as long as you keep the darker color to the bottom. Flip the colors and Sunrise is more flattering to those bodies with broad shoulders and narrower hips. So, it's not just the orientation of the design lines, it's the color placement, too.
