Being long-legged, there are numerous clothing items that do not fit me the way they are meant to or in a way that is flattering. Dresses are perpetually too short on me and I’m always needing to get creative with how to wear them. This skirt, which is actually sold as a dress, is the perfect example. There is no way I could get away with wearing it as it was meant to be worn. But I loved the watercolor-like pattern and was sure there was something I could do about that. I opted, at least this time, to wear it as a skirt.
At first I went with a coral drapped top, but it was too much flow and not enough shape. Opting for this blue shirt instead was the perfect combination. Throw on the coral heels that are a summer staple right now and I was ready to go.
Tip: If you really like a pattern or clothing item, try to envision different ways of wearing the piece in order to get more use out of it and in order to flatter your personal figure more.
