We may not all want to wear bold patterned dresses all the time, but no wardrobe is ever complete without at least one wild dress you thought would be unflattering until you tried it on. Vertically challenged individuals like myself, probably already know that patterns aren’t easy to pull off when you’re not 5 foot 9. One key piece of fashion advice I learned from a young age, is that solid colors make you look taller, and crazy patterns can make you look shorter.
The shorter the dress, the more it will emphasize the length of your legs! Pick a dress that has the same pattern from top to bottom. Know which colors flatter your skin tone, and stick to them!
