Woot, I have finally figured out the collage!

While I am loving the light feel of these new crops, styling with what is currently in my closet is a bit of a challenge. Many (most?) of these combinations are certainly big, fat fails and I would truly appreciate your telling me which ones are stinking it up or kind of working : ) I think the issue with some is that the shirts are too short and/or ill fitting? Because I'm short waisted, in the past I always thought I needed a petite shirt.

In my K/R thread there were suggestions of a linen shirt and also 3/4 or elbow length sleeves.  The chambray in #2 is about as close as I can get to the linen suggestion right now, but it is a fairly stiff fabric so probably not something I would actually wear with these. #3 has the longer sleeved tees, but I think the overall length of the shirts (brown and black) are too short?

Also, are there sleeve lengths here that I should simply steer clear of?  Like the cap sleeve in #1 or even the short sleeves in #3? I'll probably keep wearing both regardless, but this would be helpful for future additions.

One more thing - because of the pleat detail in the pants, would a patterned top be too much going on?

Thanks a million!
