Olivia Palermo's Trick for Looking Taller in a Maxi Dress

Olivia Palermo celebrated the launch of her new collaboration with Nordstrom's Chelsea28 line last week in New York, wearing a bohemian-inspired burgundy maxi dress from the collection. Accented with a wide red leather belt and a fur vest (perfect for winterizing a maxi), her dress was accessorized with gorgeous boots in a similar hue. They also featured a pointed toe and a high length that didn't expose any skin, creating a single, long line that made the style influencer look taller than her 5'6" frame. Next time you reach for your favorite maxi dress, try pairing it with similarly hued tall, pointed-toe boots, and thank Palermo for her easy trick!
