How to Dress Short Legs/Long Torso


How to Dress Short Legs/Long Torso

When deciding what to wear is important to know your vertical body proportions. 
If you have short legs and long torso the accent in your look should be on your upper body where you have this nice and long waistline. Wear big, bold belts, details around the waist and cropped jackets. Also consider wearing horizontal or diagonal stripes to brake up the upper body space. To visually lengthen your legs wear high waisted pants and skirts. The skirts will work best if they are short (you can even go for mini if your legs are toned and you want to show them). Choose darker colors and pin stripes for your bottoms to create an illusion of a longer lower body. Make sure your hosiery, skirt and shoes are the same color – this will also elongate your legs and make your body proportionate.
