IN THE NAVY

This navy ensemble is one of my favorite “go to” looks because it’s easy to wear and transitions quite easily from day to evening. Usually once I leave the house, I’m out for good, so it’s useful to have outfits in the arsenal that are comfortable, stylish and can also be worn out to a nice dinner after running around town all day.
At a mere 5’2, I’m a bit vertically challenged, so I try to look for styles that will work for a shorter frame. I get a lot of comments on Facebook from women who are short in stature as well, who find shopping for flattering styles incredibly challenging. So here’s a tip: dressing head to toe in one color palette is one way to give the illusion of height. Obviously pairing your look with four inch heels, like this pair from Pedro Garcia, is yet another way to appear taller and slimmer. However, not everyone wants to totter around like an escapee stilt walker from Cirque du Soleil, so a midi heel or flat in the same color is going to work to elongate the body just as well. We can’t all be born tall and willowy, but if you know a few tricks of the trade, you can definitely fake it.
