Fact or Fiction: All black makes you look slimmer

In the world of styling a monochromatic outfit can be stunning, but it doesn't always create a flattering figure. The best use of black is on parts of your body that you want to fade into the background or minimize while using color, print or texture to highlight another. If you love the East Coast head-to-toe all black look then try to pick a piece in the outfit that changes up the texture or sheen. Head-to-toe in any one color can actually accentuate your natural silhouette in stead of minimizing or slimming it. If you love your natural silhouette than go for it. Otherwise there are other more flattering ways to use black in your wardrobe!
