The One Summer Piece Fashion Girls Wear to Look Taller

Summer is fast approaching, and hotter weather means shorter hemlines. The only problem? We aren't all blessed with modelesque mile-long legs to flaunt. Not to worry, though! While dutifully scrolling through all the latest street style, we picked up on the summer piece fashion girls always rely on to elongate their frames: skirts with slits. The piece is so much more than just an extra peek of leg; a slit also creates a flattering vertical line to make you appear taller and leaner. It's so simple it's genius.
