The weather in LA has slowly been creeping up to the high 80s this week and I couldn't be more thrilled. I celebrated the summer-like weather with this adorable American Gold tank (worn as a dress because short girls like me can kind of get away with stuff like that lol). I just made sure that I wore Spanx underneath for the occasional gust of wind that's bound to blow my dress up and expose me if I didn't.
Since my dress had a simplistic A-line silhouette with minimal looped detailing at the hemlines, I decided to just pile on the jewelry for a little more pizzazz. I may have gone a bit overboard but I felt like being outrageous that day (or I wouldn't have worn a tank as a dress). I do plan on wearing this "dress" properly as a tank top by pairing it with some cute bell bottom pants once the weather in LA starts to cool down again.
**Styling Tips (for the vertically challenged like me):
- Wear a short dress because the more leg that's exposed, the longer your legs appear.
- Think Monochrome! Wearing one color will trick others into thinking you're taller than you actually are because the eyes will travel through the whole outfit from head to heels. *note that darker colors are obviously going to be more slimming*
- Pair pants, tights, or socks with the same colored heels. It's the same idea as dressing in one color. *if you're going sockless/tightless with a dress, try pairing your dress with nude heels and try to avoid ankle boots*
