That little black dress

Turns out every woman's favourite the black dress might not be as flattering one might think. According to experts wearing black ages the face.
In fact, it will age their skin tone dramatically. "Black gives the illusion of slimming down the wearer, and designers will have us believe that it's the colour of the season and you must not be seen in anything else. But it can also bring out dark circles under the eyes and lines. The effect can be as serious as making women feel drained, self-conscious and introverted."
Time to bring out the bright coloured clothes again until another expert tells us bright and colourful clothes will make us look like a peacock. It's hard work being a fashionista...
