Stay solid (but different textures add more fun)
is fine and dandy. But if you’re looking to look taller, stick with one color
for the evening. Bored with just a solo hue? Pick a multi-material dress, like
this one, to make keep your ensemble elongating and
Expert’s tip: If you’re going for the monochromatic
look with separates, pair tops and bottoms with distinctly different textures.

Pick a tiny print
does not always mean better. Case in point:
ginormous prints that engulf and diminish your itty-bitty frame. Keep it small
and simple to make your shape shine.
Expert’s tip: Don’t waste your waist with a big belt
that takes up half the size of your torso. Opt for a skinny belt, which won’t
ruin that tall illusion you’re trying to achieve.

Above the knees, please
we’re not insisting on rocking minis to every event. Simply put: anything
drifting below your knees (we’re looking at you, midis) shortens already short
sweeties. Not that we’re hating on maxis—just make sure your hemline’s not
tripping you or sweeping the floor as you walk.
Expert’s tip: Don’t wear an ill-fitting garment, no
matter how cute. Enlist the help of a tailor for the perfect fit. Trust us,
it’s worth it.

know how vertical stripes make you seem slimmer widthwise? They also make you
seem longer lengthwise. Oh, stripes, what can’t you do?
Expert’s tip: Wear black tights with black shoes to
make your legs look long ‘n’ lean.

Stick to strapless
no denying it: strapless just looks ah-mazing on petite pretties. Bonus points
for an adorbs sweetheart neckline.
Expert’s tip: Bag those big bags. As a rule of thumb,
your purse shouldn’t be so big that you can fit most of yourself in it.

Work the right waistline
waistline of your dress or top defines where your legs start (to onlookers, not
to doctors). Your best bet is an empire dress, which creates the illusion that
your gams go on and on.
Expert’s tip: Improve your posture.
Nothing adds inches quite like straightening up.
