The taper of the pants along with the height of the shoe gives a long and lean look, even if you're not tall. And don't worry about the volume of the pleats at the hip, because that's balanced by the volume and drape of the blouse. These oxford shoes would also work with a long, fluid pair of wide-leg jeans or pants, but make sure the top you pair them with is more body-conscious. The jacket keeps this modern suit looking sleek. And the scarf adds a pop of color.
