Fashion Police: Unnecessary Widening

While I like this combination, I think I’d like it better on a horizontal
taller woman.  This gal is both petite and pear-shaped,
which means the horizontals and the light shorts aren’t
doing a lot for her.  The horizontal lines are widening and
visually “chopping her up,” while the light color on the
widest part of her body makes it look wider than it is. 
The chunky white tennis shoes add another horizontal
line at her feet, visually shortening her legs.

Solution:  She’d look taller and trimmer in a top with vertical
stripes, dark shorts, and flesh-colored flats or sandals.
