New Proportions

I came across these images in Vogue’s weekly 10 Best Dressed  post and was struck by the modern proportions. I love the long sleeveless top over matching cropped pants on Lake Bell.  The oversized sweater on Vanessa Traina Snow is also super chic, but needs far more height than I have.

  • No Preston. It’s not a good fashion moment for either one. They don’t look great and both are stunningly gorgeous, tall and thin. I shudder to think what the average woman may end up looking like who tries to emulate either one of these looks. Yikes!

  • I do love both proportions. The top one is familiar to me as I have seen a lot of women who wear tunic lengths over trousers before and I just love how clean it looks here. I’ve never been able to wear a mini length anything so this way may be my only chance 🙂
    I think the second look may work/be wearable with a slight tweak of the lengths for more petite women – I am definitely going to try it with my jumpers that are slightly shorter but the heels are a must with this look. I’ve always loved the skirts and sweater/jumper combination.

  • Hmmmm … I sense the possible arrival of an apron moment!
