  • Preference is given to a monochrome dresses or resolved in one color saturation – this will visually lengthen the silhouette.
  • The top part of the body is visually extended by means of V-neck. Mandarin collar dress will also add a few centimeter. Quite the opposite effect gives a rectangular cut-out or a boat cut-out, located horizontally. They should be attributed to an unsuccessful choice for those who would like to look taller.
  • Accessories help to create vertical lines. Jewelry: elongated pendants, earrings, strands. Lightweight and thin rather narrow scarves with the correct pattern or contrasting color to the overall dress tone, neatly draped over the neck.
  • Slim-fitted dresses will be Ideal for petite women. Pencil dresses will also look good. Long dresses of flowing fabrics are good, vertical folds will rise higher.
  • Give preference to high waisted dresses.
