Parachute SilhouetteWhile there are so many of the trends from fashion week that works well for the average consumer, parachute silhouettes are not one of them. The parachute silhouette while it looks great on the model body 5ft 8inch or taller size bodies, on anyone else it creates a large silhouette that adds volume and looks sloppy. Who wants to make themselves look heavier?  Leave It.

RuchingOne of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to disguise a few extra pounds is to cover extra weight with loose clothing. This creates a larger silhouette and only makes a person look bigger. Ruching is a great way to camouflage less than perfect figures. The gathered fabric creates a slim silhouette while distracting from unsightly lumps. Rock It!

Suit Jackets and ShortsMany designers feel that a woman never looks sexier and well dressed than when she dons a well-fitted suit. Still, a suit is a very formal look. Wearing it to a nightclub or a party can make a person look out of place. Solution for spring 2018: Suit Jacket and shorts! It’s fun, flirty look that lets you show a lot of leg without looking too sexy. Rock It!

Transparent FabricHaven’t we done this already? It began with the stars wearing sheer unlined gowns on the red carpet and now designers has upped the ante, sending models down the runway wearing see through fabric and no bras. Very few women would feel comfortable replicating this look and depending on where you live you might be breaking the law. This one remains a hard pass. And remember these very diaphanous looks on the runway usually get additional lining on retail racks that can alter the sexiness of the original garment. Fashion Reverie says Leave It!

Square NecklinesSquare Necklines are huge this season. The best thing about square necklines is that they can be striking and flattering. When people with round faces wear round necklines it just emphasizes that and makes them look heavier. Square necklines can make you look thinner instantly. Just be sure to try on a square neckline before you buy it. Some are so wide they’ll display bra straps. Rock It!

YellowOrange was the new black last season and while it’s still going strong, yellow is a strong second behind yellow! The trick to wearing yellow is finding the right shade for your complexion. If your complexion already has yellow undertones, you might want to avoid wearing it altogether. In that case, a purse or shoes in a bright sunshine yellow can make a great accessory. Rock It!
