How do you dress those amazingly short stems you’ve got there!? Well… I was once mistaken for a little person/dwarf, which I’m not. and I quote “Wow people like you usually have short arms and stubby legs! You look very well proportioned!” umm.. I’m not a little person. But thanks??? I’m 5’2 on a good day and I stand as tall as possible. Thank goodness for the help of neutral colored heels.

So how the heck do I dress my legs? I wear whatever I want basically… My go to is not always jeans or leggings. I’m a bold print kind of gal.  Or leather. Leather is always good. So for this I paired my leopard print skinnies with red lips and top with caramel colored heels. I would consider navy, black, nude or leopard print my neutral colors for shoes. I also love dresses, ones that poof and come to just below my knees are my go-to. I also love a long trench or sweater to make my body look longer.

You’ll also notice I never stand square on to the camera. I always pop a hip out or turn side on so that I look leaner and longer. I push my hips back and away from the camera. You know, smaller away, smaller assets.

    It’s safe to say I’m a stalker :)Hahaha I loved this look on Instagram I had to come see more photos here. I love red and I’m loving how you’ve styled it with the leopard print skinnies and the chunky heels.

    I love this outfit combo! I never would have noticed the length of your legs. As a fellow short person (5’3) I totally sympathize.
