I was thinking about dressing more according to the colour column idea, mainly bc i'm a home educator in a rural setting and need a "uniform" that i can dress up just enough by adding an extra layer without looking overdressed.

Problem is when i think colour column my mind immediately jumps to ponte knit pants/pencil skirt in olive green with a knit tank in the same fabric.
But this will really make my prominent tummy pop out, right?
I'm hourglass with a big tummy (tummy is 7in larger than my waist)
