Transcript of Elements & Principles of Design

This model is wearing examples of vertical lines. Her blazer and vest give the illusion of a very small waist and long torso. Also her collar is making it look like she has a longer elegant neck. These give her more of a formal business-like look.
This model is wearing an example of an accented neutral outfit. She is wearing a black dress which is the neutral color, and a red hat and shoes which are the accents. The models red pumps draw attention to her feet. Because of this, they make her legs look longer because the eyes are drawn to them. Also, she is wearing a bright red sun hat that draws attention to her face. The accents pull the outfit together by having one at the top and bottom of her body.

Elements & Principles
of Design

This model is wearing many examples of curved lines. The seams around the sleeves and neckline are rounded which is giving more shape to her shoulders and neck. Her skirt has two separate rounded seams which holds attention to her legs. At the bottom of her legs are her heels. They are made up of arched sole that also draws attention to her legs. The rounded and curved appearences in the models outfit give her a more femine and graceful look.
This picture of Beyonce wearing a bell shaped dress is showing her well proportioned hourglass body figure. Her shoulders are the same width as her hips and she has a very defined waist. Women with this body type weigh around 115 to 170lbs. and are 5'3" to 5'7" tall. It is best for these body types to keep their broad shoulders and hips, and also keep a very defined small waist.
This model is showing an example of an adjacent color scheme by using different tints of a color. The top of her dress
is a dark purple/blackish color and gradually lightens into a maroon or red-violet color as the dress reaches the floor. This creates somewhat of an ombre effect throughout her whole style. The models dark brown hair and makeup blends in with the top of her dress. Also, her shoes are the same color as the bottom of the dress. These colors match the models skin very well because of her neutral skin tone. Her overall style creates a calming and relaxing appearance.

Accented Neutral
This model is wearing a leather snake skin
skirt and a loose oversized v-neck tee.
There are a few examples of straight lines
her outfit. The neckline of her shirt is made
up of two straight lines that give the illusion
of a long, elegant neck. The seam in her
skirt is not only being used to hold the skirt together, but also to make her legs look
smaller by making it look like the legs go on longer than they do. These illusions make a simple skirt and tee look formal and stylish.

This sweater is showing an example of a tactile texture. The texture loopy, furry, and soft. The texture and size of this sweater makes it look like the girl has a bigger upper body which make her legs look smaller. These factors make the overall look comfy and casual.
This model is wearing an example of a symmetrical outfit. If you were to cut the outfit in half, both sides would look exactly the same. This is just a casual outfit to go shopping in, but the symmetrical balance also makes it look more solid and mature.
This outfit is showing an example of a symmetrical balance. The attention is drawn to her black bag and bracelet, which is what makes up the uneven symmetry. Having something different on each of her hands make the asymmetry of this look more casual. Overall, The dress gives off an informal yet well put together outfit.
This models dress is showing an example of a emphasis by creating a focal point at the midpoint of the upper body. It is giving the illusion of a small waist and bust. This dress is made up of curved lines that eventually make a circle at the point of emphasis. As the dress gets farther away from this point, The squares and circles get farther apart.
This model is wearing a black and white stripped blouse. It shows an example of rhythm of opposition by alternating between the two colors on her shirt. This is showing a contrast between dark and light on her light skin color.
This models fuzzy cardigan, and cotton shirt and skirt are giving off an example of radiation. The transition from one texture to another makes a balanced outfit. By just having two different fabric types, it gives off a comfy and casual look.
This coat is showing an example of rhythm by repetition by creating lines for the eyes to follow. The buttons on her coat bring attention to the middle of her body up to the upper part. The eyes follow the buttons on her torso and arms which give off the illusion of a longer body in those areas. The overall appearence of the repetition makes her look longer and taller.
The ratio of this models dress is 1:5. The first part of the ratio is from where her dress starts to where her belt is which determines the waist line. The second part is the rest of her body from her waist down to the floor. This particular proportion is more appealing to the eye because it is an uneven ratio.
(another example of proportion)
This crop top and skirt Zendaya is wearing is one of my favorite outfits. I believe the entire look pulls together nicely by showing variety and unity. There is variety by having horizontal lines on the top and lines of many directions of the bottom. Also, the open stomach and slit in the back give a change from fabric, to skin, and back to fabric. Unity is achieved by giving off only two colors which creates repetition by opposition and also two neutral colors. These designs all come together to create a harmonized look.
