Long, layering lengths have been very prominent this season. Done correctly, it can add a lot of visual interest to your entire look. Regardless of your height, it’s all about picking the right length. Proportion is key – in my case, I unzipped the sweater to the height of my natural waist to balance the top and bottom half of my look. The button down shirt also has a side split so it puts greater emphasis on this as well. This helps to visually elongate the legs, creating an illusion of increased height. What are your styling hints?
