Britt looks adorable in this cool summer dress and Gladiator sandals. However, she has chopped her 5'4" frame off at the ankle with those black straps! By wearing a similar style sandal in flesh tone, she has visually added length to her legs. The heels also extend her legs by adding physical height. Defining her waist with a thin belt has a slimming effect. She re-created her 5'1" appearance to an actual 5'7" and trimmed 15 pounds in under a minute!

Coco Chanel first made stripes chic - despite those challenging horizontal lines. If this bothers you, notice that the narrow stripes create a "ladder" effect, drawing the eye up and down. A jacket worn over the top can instantly divide a wide upper body.
The traditional nauticals are usually found in black/white or navy/ivory combinations. Choose the one that best suits your complexion - even if you need to find a red/ivory version. You can also try Natalie's trick from the French and wear a scarf against your face! http://what2wear.us/Services.html

Contrary to popular belief, petite women do NOT look good in everything! A petite figure can easily get lost in over-sized clothing or disproportionate pieces! What a way to drown a beautiful body!
Wearing tailored pieces will complement, not overpower a petite figure. All one color (even in varying shades) will elongate the body instead of cropping it. Showing more leg - even down to a lower vamp on a shoe can extend length as well!
