I'm not a tall person (5'3"...I told you), but I've found a style that helps a bit with that. Here is an example of Katie Holmes in a style that's somewhat similar to what I'm talking about:
This example is a little more casual than what I made from my closet, but the jeans are what I'm most referring to. I have these retro flare jeans that are somewhat high-waisted that I have rediscovered. I wear them with a wide brown belt, a tucked in white tee, a cotton jacket and boots (need a little height). Love it! Most of all, I've loved accessorizing this outfit.
I wore this necklace with the outfit mentioned above, and it made all the difference!! Turquoise jewelry can make anything pop.
With these earrings and this bracelet, it's a transformed outfit! I love mixing and matching...it's so conservative!
