The simplest way to make your legs look instantly longer is to wear a long maxi skirt. The key is pairing a shorter, cropped shirt up top. Something longer that extends below the top of the skirt will only cut off the part of your legs you're trying to elongate.

If you're not feeling an A-line dress but still want to cinch in your waist, tie something around it. But that doesn't just mean a classic belt like above; a cool shirt tied around your waist works great, or a piece that features a built-in tie.



On Palermo: Paula Cademartori bag; Westward Leaning Voyager 16 Sunglasses ($185); Aquazzura sandals.
