1. Dress In One Color
A monochromatic ensemble keeps the focus on a solid visual, thus creating an elongating effect. Skip color-block pieces-they'll break up and shorten your silhouette.

2. Go Vertical
Choose fashions with long stripes or seams. It draws the eye up and down rather than side to side, thus a taller frame.

3. Step Out In Low-Vamp Heels

The lower the vamp and more toe cleavage, the longer your leg will appear. Avoid ankle-straps which breaks up the leg and shortens.

4. Wear Pencil Skirts
Skip the mini's, which hits across the thick part of the thigh, making it more noticeable you've got short gams. Opt for pencil style dresses and skirts that fall just above the knee, showing off the best part of leg.

5. Belt It
Choose belts that match your outfit. Wide or contrasting belts cut the figure in half and break up the vertical illusion you want to achieve.
