Everything in me says I shouldn't be wearing this when I'm only 5'1" - wide leg trousers and a voluminous drop shoulder horizontal striped sweater. And yet I love the combination and think it works. Previously I've paired this sweater with slouchy and slimmer bottoms but I like the pairing with the trousers because it's all in the same colour and the Glen plaid trousers have a fine navy stripe in them which matches the navy stripe in my sweater.
I've added my navy vintage leather handbag for some structure to this drapey outfit (and for another bit of navy!) and my trusty black Clarks pumps for footwear.
So what do you think? Can a petite apple pull off this much volume or should I stick with pairing the sweater with sleeker bottoms and pencil skirts? As always, all suggestions/comments welcome.
