Mum on the Run – An outfit to make your legs look longer….

For a change I thought that I would talk about the proportions of an outfit.  Our son doesn’t approve – he prefers what he calls “the funnier posts” and wonders whether I have run out of things to say today.  Unfortunately for you all there’s plenty more – but more about the roast chicken with the lemon up its bum tomorrow!

For those of you who feel in need of a couple of extra inches in the leg department, the proportions of an outfit such as this will help you to achieve that.  There are a few reasons for this:

  • Unlike trousers, when wearing a skirt, it is impossible to see where your legs start – always good if you are trying to disguise the fact that they are shorter than you might like them to be;
  • Being full length, the skirt does a great job of maximising the length between your feet and your waist!
  • The skirt is high waisted, which again creates the illusion of longer legs;
  • The cropped jacket, which just meets the top of the skirt, keeps the top half neat and compact, which again elongates your bottom half.

On another note, skirts such as this are great for hiding all manner of unfinished beauty business and are a god send.  I love wearing this skirt in winter with biker boots and a chunky roll neck and in summer it works well with a lighter top and sandals.  A bit of versatility can never be a bad thing in a wardrobe.
