The skirts heaviness on the left side makes this perfect for being asymmetrical
RADIATION: Radical Balance
The pleats in this skirt radiate from the waist.
This outfit is head-to-toe symmetrical, except for the feather at the top of the hat.
The dramatic black line that goes straight down the skirt is what draws in your eye first
All your eye sees in this outfit is the coat shaped like a heart.
The two very different patterns in this look make your eye move and focus on all aspects of the outfit.
ALTERNATION OF COLOR
The alternation of the warm to cool colors give this look the perfect amount of rhythm.
The monotone colors are off set by the vibrant and fuzzy gloves, making this concentration of rhythm on the hands.
The gradation of this coat creates a smooth rhythm to help transition the outfit from light to dark.
The thick to thin lines in this dress create a sequencing rhythm and a great pattern.
PROPORTION / SCALE
Due to the pants being so large, the pattern is small to scale down the drama of them and make the woman look smaller, especially at the waist.
The over-the-top shoulders in this dress make the wearer look small and puts focus on her face.
Because this jacket and skirt are the same pattern and so close together, it creates a sense that they belong together.
The hat, booties, purse, and shaw create unity in this outfit due to their monotone color.
The petite squares all over this romper seem like an extra layer of fabric because of the sense of closure.
