Just yesterday I was working out whether or not to tuck my top into my pants, so I took photos to help me decide which looked best (was flattering to my eye). There was enough contrast between the patterned top and solid coloured bottoms that a line of demarcation was visible between the two (#1-2). What I’m wearing today has even more contrast (#3-4).

I’m short waisted with long legs and a long rise and there is only 6-8 inches difference between my ‘waist’ and bust/hip measurements. I like an exaggerated long leg look when I’m wearing long wide leg trousers, flares, or boot cuts - and will tuck my top in those instances, however most of the time I feel ‘balanced’ using styling ‘tricks’ to elongate my torso and shorten my leg line.
