Eyes say much about who you are and are also known as the mirrors of the soul. They play an important role in how we feel and look. Your eyes reveal when you’re feeling tired and vice versa; when you feel energized and happy, your eyes will radiate just that. A lot has to do with a healthy lifestyle but there are ways to influence the way your eyes look with clothes. Emphasizing your eyes is also a clever way to divert attention from other parts of the body - looks are immediately drawn to your eyes. A simple way to achieve this, is by using the basics of color theory; by adjusting the color of your clothes, accessories and makeup to the color of your eyes.
There are two ways to accentuate your eyes with your choice of clothes, and literally create eye-catchers:
1. Wear clothes in your eyes’ complementary color (mainly works for blue, green and brown eyes). The contrast emphasizes the color of your eyes.
2. Wear clothes in the same color group as your eyes (works for all eye colors). The tonal combination strengthens the color of your eyes.
Tip: these rules apply to clothes that frame your face for the best effect. Think: upper pieces (or items with a fixed top half like dresses and jumpsuits), make-up and accessories like scarves and wraps that are worn near the face.
