Inspired by Tanya's cool "long baggy shorts" look, I took a peek into my closet.
I happen to own the very same shorts she is showing, but being only 5'4" to her 5'6" mine were much longer and proportionately a bit funny on me at purchase, so I hemmed them. They're still long -- but very clearly "shorts," if you know what I mean. (Pic 1)
So instead, I decided to try with my Zara sarong shorts, which are longer and more culotte like. (pic 2)
That felt a little plain, and I worried it was too dark on the bottom. So I tried with my DVF leopard sweater sort of tucked under for a cropped effect. Alas, this wouldn't stay put and irritated me, so off it came. (pic 3)
Next I added a necklace. Now, I don't own many necklaces, not being much for jewellery in general, so I made do with what I had. I don't think it really adds anything and maybe even detracts, but oh well. I wore it for supper with Mr. Suz and he didn't seem to think it was weird or anything. (pic 4)
And then I took off the shorts and changed shoes because we decided to go out for a short walk and it was chilly! So pic 5 was the outfit the world saw in the end.
The cropped over long is a new proportion to me completely. And I'm not really sure how to wear it. But it's fun playing around.
Do you like it better with or without the necklace? And if this one isn't right, what kind might work?
