If you want to accentuate your legs
If you'd like to accentuate the lower part of your body, highlight your legs in either short dresses or elongating flare jeans. As for shoes, find heels that match your skin tone to give the illusion of mile-long legs.
If you'd like to create the illusion of curves, side cutout dresses will make your waist look smaller compared to your bust and hips. Ruffled swimsuit and sweetheart necklines will help create the illusion of a larger bust.
