Even for someone like me who gets bored easily, style uniforms are a hugely helpful tool for getting dressed day in - day out. However much someone may enjoy creating new outfits, between snoozed alarms, stressful deadlines and the radio announcing traffic problems the...

Dresses are a lazy girl's dream - put one on, add shoes, go. They are a big favourite with me for this reason. And as an added bonus for a petite girl with shorter legs, they can also often be a great way to fake longer legs. 

However, this does not mean that any dress...

Half- or front-tucking is when you tuck the front but not the rest of your top - see  Olivia's example above.

More often than not, it gives a casual or smart casual vibe, and thus is best done with T-shirts, shirts, tops and jumpers. Blouses are best half-tucked i...

Flattering short legs in urban or smart settings is easy - pop on heels and a skirt. But what to do in casual surroundings? Much much harder.

All body shapes come with their own challenges of course, and for every woman there are certain things they can easily buy and wear and others that they struggle to make work. For all of us, there are certain trends that seem impossible for our bodies to pull off.

Being aware of how clothes fit us from multiple angles is always an important thing: our bodies are not one-dimensional, so something that looks good from the front may not do so from the side, the back, or even more crucially, from an angle. This is all the more key f...

I find asymmetric skirts and dresses to be a wonderful invention for shorter legs, as their uneven hems tend to elongate rather than harshly cut off legs [even at the usually so tricky midi length], and warmly recommend them to all.

Asymmetry can of...

I love blazers for many reasons: they are versatile, sleek, lend power and sophistication, and dress up jeans in an instant. But in addition to all this, they are also very flattering for women with longer torsos and shorter legs, as they both give a strong silhouette...
