Today's Everyday Fashion: Coattails

Today's outfit: I totally dig it, but it's not my favorite silhouette for my own body type. I do, however, think it's a great solution for an inverted triangle shape (top-heavy), apple shape, or even for an expecting woman to wear to the office! Imagine the same tops worn with a wide-leg trouser and it's too much clothing. Pairing a long and loose top with cropped and tapered trousers, however, will balance out your top half and make you appear thinner, show off your slim legs and overall create a balanced look. What are your favorite silhouettes for your own body type?
