I have a confession to make. I’m short. I like to tell people I’m 5’4” -- and a half -- but that’s not true unless I’m wearing heels or platforms. I’m probably 5’3” and change if I’m being completely honest, so I know firsthand how many clothes out there can make me appear shorter. I don’t necessarily want to look supermodel tall, but I do like to make sure I flatter myself rather than accentuating my height -- and here are some tips that help me to do so!
1. Dress in Monochrome

Many tips and experts will say that you shouldn’t include any other colors at all, but I find that one accent color makes a splash. It could be your belt, your shoes, your hair accessories, or just some bright lipstick. Dark shades also make you look slimmer, so that’s a plus as well.
