Yesterday’s post on using a column of colour had lots of comments and a few queries which I thought I’d answer today.
A top that has some depth, so grey, black, or charcoal would all work.
Always make shoes darker than your pants if you don’t have a colour that blends exactly – so black shoes work well with a darker blue denim.
Shiny here. I am 5’0″ and I have lately been wondering why strive to look taller? The reality is, everyone towers over me. I’m not fooling anyone. I am thinking maybe looking proportionate is more important?
There is no need to look taller, unless you want to, I’ve met many petite women who are happy with their height, but others who would like to look taller.
Yes, proportion is probably the most important factor! The column of colour helps to take away many proportion issues as you are not breaking up your body as much so proportions are less noticeable.
As a tall and thin person I would do the opposite, then, right? I’m thinking I should avoid having a single colour going all the way from the top to the bottom, outside or inside.
As someone with proportionally short legs I would still want to match shoes to trousers, however.
