I’m not the tallest girl in all the land, and was never blessed with long legs, but instead have an awkwardly long torso (cheers Dad) that’s sometimes an absolute pain when it comes to finding clothes that actually fit well. I spend a good chunk of my days pulling down and trying to tuck in tops that aren’t supposed to be cropped but most definitely are on me, and I’m forever on the hunt for a pair of jeans that are snug on the waist but don’t require five turn ups to get them to the right length! For me my short legs are a pretty big hang up of mine, and where I can I always try and dress to make them appear longer to boost my body confidence.
I’m a big fan of high waisted trousers and jeans as they give the illusion of having longer pins and a more balanced torso, but jumpsuits can always be a tricky one! Alas, I have found the jumpsuit of dreams and all my prayers and woes have been answered! This little Misspap number cinches in at the waist, making it appear higher than it is, and features a clever little overlay at the top, so essentially it looks like a crop top and high waisted trousers aka leg lengthening combo!
Don’t be fooled by the sun in these photos – the heatwave has well and truly left the north west, so I had to layer a little long sleeved tee underneath, but I still think it looks pretty cute! The jumpsuit would look amazing dressed up for evening though, or even for a wedding, with some barely-there heels and a glamorous up-do with delicate gold accessories. Heck, with heels can you imagine how long my legs would look?!
I’m super impressed with the Misspap collections at the mo and have a couple more dreamy pieces to show you, so fingers crossed the weather at least stays dry over the next couple of weeks so I can get some shots to show you!
