One of the main influencers on which patterns we may choose is based on our personality, which I won’t get into on this post. But what I will go into here is how to choose a physically flattering print.
Look at your facial features – are they pointed, straight or angular in shape? If so you will look best in patterns made from straight lines, from pinstripes, to checks and other angular geometrics.
If your facial features include large round eyes, generous lips, arched eyebrows and curved cheeks, look for patterns that have a curve, such as florals, squigles, polka dots.
If you have some curved features and other straight or angular features, then look for patterns that have both curved and straight elements such as hearts, paisley and some florals.
Also consider your hair – if it’s very straight and flat, look for straighter patterns to harmonise.
If curly, look for patterns with some curve.
And of course, if it’s a bit wavy, look for a pattern with both elements such as this one.
