Top: Zara, Pants: Banana Republic, Shoes: Kelsi Dagger via Gilt, Bag: Dooney and Burke (moms), Earrings: Nordstrom Rack

This is one of my favorite outfits. The jeans are flattering, the wedges are so comfortable, and this new top with its bejeweled shoulders is becoming an instant favorite. But aside from the fun aspects of this outfit, it instantly proportions my body which is something I always appreciate in clothing.

This outfit helps me out in a number of ways:

1) The wider leg opening in these jeans helps to draw attention away from my hips and balance out my bottom half.

2) The dark wash also helps in camouflaging any body bumps.

3) This white top with its ruffled shoulder adds some interest and volume to my top half, helping to draw the eye upward and balance out my fuller bottom.

4) Finally, the low neckline helps elongate my neck and make me look taller overall.

I tied a fun scarf to this green carryall for some added interest. I thought it brought a nice punch of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

How do you make clothing work for your body?
