For a girl like me with a small waist and curvy hips, high-waisted silhouettes are great for drawing attention to my svelte mid-section. I love pairing them with longline blazers [September's "Now That's Flattering"] because they help elongate the body even more, while simultaneously adding interest and a touch of polish to any outfit. With this ensemble, I decided to finish with leopard print sandals, which added some boldness without being too overwhelming. Hats are my signature, so to top it all off, I tossed on a wide-brim fedora. Despite what some people might say, they're still cool!
