Length of pants for this suit??

Posted by Dedtired (My Page) on

Hi. I just bought a silk taupe colored suit. It has a long jacket --the kind that comes to mid-thigh. I need to have the pants shortened. I think it will look best if the pants are at or just above ankle length. I'll wear it with a about a 2" sandal.It's not really dressy.

Will this look too short -- like floods? This is shorter than I would normally wear a pants suit, but most of my suits have regular length jackets, This suit is for two early evening fund raising parties I will attend in mid- May.

Personally, I would make the pants long and flowing, breaking at the top of your shoes.... it will lengthen the leg and be proportionate to the jacket, which seems gorgeous by the way...
I have a few longer jackets and I kept the pants long. I wear shorter pants in a more casual way and with twin sets or shorter jackets.....

Thanks -- that's a good point. Maybe what I need is more length rather than less. So, you know about fashion as well as kitchens!!
