How to choose Dresses and Other Outfits for Short Women that make them Appear Taller

When you're not the average size of a fashion model, and most of us aren't, shopping can get a bit frustrating. It's tough looking your best when you don't know the best clothing for your body type, and often times people wonder how to accentuate the beautiful body they were given. While be short is lovable and being curvy is adored, the idea of longer legs is often times dreamt of. So, here's three tips on how to style your clothes to appear a bit taller while still staying true to you!

Keep it high waisted! Dresses, skirts, shorts, pants, and even swimsuits are being made as high-waisted. This trend is definitely one to pay attention to when looking to show off the little bit of length in your lower half! Because the waistline appears higher that normal, your legs seem to travel on up with it! Also, high waisted clothing cinches in at the thinnest part of your torso which has a beautiful, slimming effect. This is most definitely a perfect style for any occasion!

Show some leg! This one isn't a huge secret, but if you think about it, it makes so much sense! An easy way to use this trend without being paranoid that you'll actually end up showing some cheek, is to pick up a romper! You can get a romper for just about any occasion, and they are almost always as comfortable as they seem. The best part about them is that they make it so simple to wear something short enough to show of as much thigh as someone taller without it seeming inappropriate.

The last tip is to wear nude heels! You cannot go wrong with a nude heel because they match basically any outfit, but they have another plus side too. When wear heels, you automatically look taller and you legs look much thinner. When you wear a nude heel you just maximize those effects! The closer the heel is to your skin tone, the better this trick works. When keeping with the same color scheme, your body becomes less broken up which allows you to appear longer! Plus nude heels are totally chic and timeless, so you have nothing to lose!

With these tips you can't go wrong, but you can go long! See what I did there? Seriously though, these are just a few ways to rock whatever event you're running off to while feeling confident and beautiful no matter your height! And hey, while we're being cheesy, just remember, your best accessory is your smile!
