Today’s ootd was inspired by a photo I had seen of Bianca Jagger at the Bardney Pop Festival in 1972. It’s a testament to how classic, well-tailored pieces can never go out of style. One thing though I had to change were the heels. I’m not sure how Bianca managed to walk on the grass in a pair of high heel boots but even on sturdier concrete I thought it best to go for the comfier option of flats. It’s a workday after all and there are lots to do! Since I’m only 5 feet 2 it’s easy to feel a bit swamped with so many layers on and a pair of baggy jeans, especially when I’m wearing flats. I’ve found the key to adding length when you’re petite is playing with proportion. Here are a few tricks I’ve learned if you want to look taller but heels aren’t an option. 1. It may sound counter-intuitive but a long coat does give the appearance of height. It has to do with the length drawing your eyes up and down. Just remember to keep the silhouette slim so it skims your body instead of drowning it. 2. Make sure your jeans hit above your ankle and your sleeves hit just above your wrist. I usually just cuff my jeans or sleeves but on occasion I alter them to the length I want. 3. Opt for pointy flats. It’s all about elongating everything, even your feet.
