Today I’m combining 2 of my favorite color combos- blue and orange.
I’m wearing cropped blue jeans with an orange top. but the outfit on the right isn’t working.
There is a lot wrong with this look, but let’s start with the tight orange shirt.
The high neckline isn’t flattering, having the shirt tucked in makes it even worse, the 3 inch cuffs on the sleeves are strange…
As for the jeans- where do I begin?
First off, the length is unflattering- compare the way my legs look on the right to the way they look on the left. Because the crop on the right ends mid calf- my legs look short.
The wide cut of the leg is also not as flattering, look at my saddlebags! The skinner (straight leg) cut of the jeans on the left are more slimming.
Next is the high waistband- this makes my middle area look bigger than it really is (especially since the top is tucked in- as previously mentioned).
A lower waist is more current and flattering- keep in mind though- I’m not talking so low my underwear are hanging out!
Last is the tennis shoes. I’ve talked about this so many times- so forgive me for repeating myself.
Please- DO NOT wear tennis shoes with jeans. Honestly, it doesn’t look good.
Yes, I know tennis shoes are really comfy. My feet ache all the time (that’s why I wear flats so much), but tennis shoes are not the answer.
A great alternative is Puma’s which are as comfy as tennis shoes- but so much cuter.
The animal print tank under the orange cardigan gives the outfit a little unexpected twist!
I decided to unbutton the top button and added a necklace!
