Long is haaard.
It’s so not my sweet spot.
It’s Angelina Jolie’s, Rachel Zoe’s, Sienna Miler when she dated Jude Law – they wrote the book on long.
Making long dresses and skirts work has nothing to do with your height- it’s about balancing proportions.
Rules change from body to body. Some need belts, some need cropped jackets but the aim is to balance your shoulders with your hips (one will be smaller than the other). If you don’t create this symmetry long can make you look shorter and wider quicker than you can say sheet with a hole cut in it.
What tricks did you do use to make your long look work?
WEARING: Tube dress from Supre, leather jacket from Morrison, sandals from Christian Louboutin.
