The Long and The Short of It
- This previous post describes length balancing in trouser outfits.
- Here I explained basic length balancing and how it works with a knee-length dress (or anything that is one color or pattern from neck to knee).
- Yesterday's post, concerning high waisted skirts, illustrated how to split up the neck to knee expanse (2 to 3). Inverting the proportions also works. For current summer-wear, try an extra-long t-shirt or tank worn with bermudas.
- With cropped pants or mid-calf skirts use 2 1/2 to 4. Go back and look at the picture of me in capris. If you split up the pants into 4 vertical segments, you could fit approximately 2 1/2 of those into the length of the top. Is that why ladies who wear their t-shirts tucked into the (high) waist of their pants tend to like their capris shorter?
Is this helpful at all? Maybe I'd feel better if you asked some questions.
