The elements of design: shape

The element of 'shape' in design refers to a geometric or organic visual shape on a page. It is determined by the surrounding lines or colours, and is used to add interest to a composition. Essentially, anything could be a shape, depending on its surrounding boarders. In styling outfits, shape can be found everywhere, from the shape of the piece itself, to the accessories you pair with it. As in the same with design, simplicity is queen (i'd say king, but you know, girl power). Achieving true simplicity is one of the hardest things to do. Don't overdo your outfit. Let the simplicity of the shape make the outfit. If you're wearing a statement sweater like this one that already has a boxy shape, pair it with a simple black skinny or legging. Then, throw on your fav pair of booties, and you're good to go. Or if you're in the mood, do a solid coloured pump instead... you be killin' it. -n
