Is black a good slim­ming colour for the curvy fig­ure? What is the best way to wear it with­out look­ing pale and washed out? I find black isn’t very flat­ter­ing with my fair skin.

Black can be a slim­ming colour for a curvy fig­ure if you aren’t dressed in black from head-to-toe. Any solid colour all over isn’t go­ing to flat­ter any fig­ure or size. Think about lay­er­ing light colours un­der dark (white blouse un­der dark vest or jacket) or colour-block­ing (where two or three colours are used in graphic shapes). This adds in­ter­est, and when darker coloured pan­els ap­pear along the sides of your body or around the waist, it will make you ap­pear thin­ner. To avoid look­ing washed out, you might like to try other dark colours in­stead, such as navy, grey, brown and the darker shades of red and green.
