Dressing all in one color, from top to bottom, is an effective way to elongate your petite figure. Here are some examples:
Casual in Blue
|Mossimo V-Neck Tee|
|Eddie Bauer Petite Textured Hoodie|
|Mossimo Petite Bootcut Jeans|
|SM Women's Hobo Boat Shoe|
Dressy in Black
|H& M Cardigan|
|Ann Taylor Loft Petite Trousers|
|Jones New York Leather Pump from DSW Shoes|
For those of you who think that wearing black equates gothicness: either get over it or choose colorful jewelry or hair accessories to brighten up your look. Using different textiles for each piece (ex: sparkly knit cardigan, tweed slacks, leather pumps) adds variety, texture, and in this case, sparkle.
