Banana Republic top - 2007 - $30 (similar banded hem top)

So you saw two iterations of this green swing jacket last week. This is my third try (well, third photographed try, at least). With wider-leg trousers instead of the streamlined bottoms I had before. And you know what? I don't think it turned out that badly. Having the slim fitted top underneath helped balance it out. I think.
I think the shirt underneath could have been slimmer (this one had a wide-banded bottom but then blouses out over it...perfect for hiding mini muffin tops). But this outfit was definitely comfy.
How do you balance out proportions in your outfits? Do you prefer volume on top or bottom (or do you mix it up)?
