Things aren’t always what they seem, especially in fashion. Celebrities have found a trend that can shed 10 pounds off your figure! The optical illusion dresses are all the rage on the red carpet (and for good reason) with Kate Winslet being on the forefront of the fashion statement. 

Kate has worn the same Stella McCartney in both red and white styles, both including black side paneling. Also seen sporting this style were Liv Tyler, Penelope Cruz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham … to name a few. 

Though Kate’s designer dress runs about $1600, color blocking isn’t too hard to pull off on a budget, and you can still shed about two dress sizes off your frame. 

From Forever 21 to Anthropologie, a slew of stores sell optical illusion dresses under $100. Click HERE for an example!
