I so prefer the outfit with the black skirt. I think there are a few things about it that make it the far better outfit. One would be the black color of the skirt. I think that it totally makes the white and black zig-zag stripes totally pop. It also makes the few purple zig-zag stripes also far more noticeable.
Another thing I really like is the use of the belt. The wide belt at the smallest part of my torso really draws in the eye and helps adds to the illusion of hips. I am not wearing any hip pads in either outfit, but I think with the black skirt it actually looks like I have a bit of hip! Woo-Hoo.
I also think the slightly higher length of the black skirt is more flattering. With the skirt hitting my legs right there it also helps to add to the illusion of having hips, as well as showing the curves of my calves far more than the jean skirt.
Another benefit of the outfit with the black skirt is the style of wedge that I am wearing. The shoes allows for most of my feet to be showing, this combined with the higher length skirt really helps to make my legs look longer. The sandals with the straps happens to cut my feet off at a higher location and thus giving the appearance of a shorter leg.
So.... Those are my thoughts about it, what about you? Am I missing something forgiving about the outfit with the jean skirt?
Hope you are all doing well!
