I will definitely take pictures on the road, so how to make myself more visible in the photos, let your friends circle more, the choice of clothes color is especially important. wearing relaxed colors, soft clothes no bells and whistles, exaggerated styles tidy up a note to let the girls out, they can easily Be a little fairy h Whether it is to the island, the town or the modern metropolis, thin dress is not wrong choice these basic models are worn by everyone, Never look awkward. With a few dresses, you can solve the difficult problem of choice, and you don't have to think about how to match it with the bottom. And a beautiful dress is also super-photographed, and the photos taken can be very good. Simple but not simple is our goal ~ 1: preferred cotton and linen long skirt, or soft texture such as chiffon; 2: Try to match the clothes with a layering, giving people a simple and rich Sense; 3: Whether it is spring, summer, autumn and winter, you can wear a silk scarf or shawl, and then wear some small jewelry with local characteristics, which can add a lot of color to you. Under normal circumstances, the bright color is superior to the upper phase. For example, wearing red, blue, yellow and white on a sunny seaside is better than gray and black. It is better to wear red and white with high contrast in the desert, which is better than wearing yellow and black with close color. If it is a place where grassland, forests, etc. are green, it is recommended to wear bright, green and contrasting clothes, such as white, red, and black. It is not recommended to wear green with grass. In short, the principle is to maintain a comfortable color difference with nature, after all, it is not to lurk ~ people with fashion circles have written clothing color matching rules: yellow with blue, red with white, black and white, red with black ...... In fact, it is the mutual benefit of the color to give you the whole person's spirit and more colorful. On the road, apply it~, this skill must be get~
