    Back to black

    The trick to height is all in the illusion, girlies.  When you pile on the same color head to toe, your body appears longer. How can you get the look?  Slip on a your best LBD and work it with black tights and black heels. But keep in mind you don’t hafta go goth (unless you want to!). We like to mix in some vibrant hues.

    Empire state of mind

    You may not be the kind of girl who digs the high-waisted look in jeans or shorts, but trust me, it really does the trick in dresses.  An empire waist visually lifts your torso up higher, making it seem like your legs go for miles in the process

    Vertical horizon

    Here comes that illusion bit again.  Horizontal patterns extent our bods out to the sides, right?  It only makes sense to have vertical patterns do the same in making you seem taller or shorter.

    Bubblelicious

    Fitted dresses look good on every height, but to really stop hearts, slide into a fitted dress with tiered ruffles and a bubble hem for extra volume.

    Short and sweet

    Petite babes totally win in the war of mini dresses—they’re hands-down always flattering on tiny chicas.  Embrace the super-short!

    Go long—wayyy long

    Contrary to popular belief, petite babes can pull off maxi dresses. Look to Nicole Richie:  She rocks those lengthy threads all day (and night!).  Fact of the matter is that exaggerated hems just work for you: Especially if you sneak some higher-than-high heels underneath.
