How to do the flares trend when you’re short

That doesn’t have to mean what Victoria Beckham might call a ‘sucky-sucky’ jacket. It could be a delightfully relaxed jumper like this scarlet one from sustainable British knitwear label &Daughter. But the cinched-in blazer is a fabulous, Bianca Jagger-esque look to bear in mind if you’re up for it. Incidentally, Jagger, like Kirby, is not nearly as tall as she appears – even shorter than me, in fact.

Or the top part could be the full Tom Ford Gucci, à la 1995: a silky blouse, unbuttoned to wherever, or fluttery and scarf-necked like this Mango one. But it should most definitely be tucked in. Remember, those legs must be optically lengthened at all times and tempting as it might seem to wear a long shirt or tunic down to your knees – no. If you’re worried about how your thighs look, you need to address the flares, not wear a shroud over them.
