SLITS UP HIGH

NATURALLY ELONGATED
I'm not that tall (5'3.5" to be exact) so sometimes it's hard for me to find maxi skirts that help elongate my figure. Yet, I've come to appreciate the simplicity of high slitted maxi skirts for its ability to make you look taller in a subtle way. I've particular grown fond of the one slitted maxi skirt because of its ability to shift your eyes to one leg. When your eyes are fixed on something asymmetrical, your mind will shift towards the "heavier" portion (here being the leg) and place more emphasize on it, meaning you can appear even taller. Although I'm happy with my height, I'm glad that simple things like a slitted maxi skirt can help accentuate some womanly body features. ;)

  22. That slit looks great on you and I love your heels so much! I'm short too and it's super hard for me to find longer skirts and dresses that are still flattering - you did a fantastic job!

  23. interesting...I didn't know the reason behind all the asymmetrical pieces out there, but now it all makes sense after your explanation!! O_O eye opening! haha
    I really like that your maxi is a cotton material. It makes your outfit shift to the comfy side, but you sharpened it with a leather jacket. Oh Christine, how I love your outfits <3

  31. I have the same problem with maxi skirts since I'm about as tall as you! I find them so elegant and classy but it's hard finding one that doesn't make me look stumpy. You wore them really well; I have to look into skirts with slits now :)

    I love your style; would you like to follow each other?
