Petite girls will probably have shorter legs and that's not a problem if you know how to work it! Wear the same color of belt as your pants or skirt to create an illusion of extra length. Also, choose skinny belts as thicker ones might cut you off right in the middle and make your body look disconnected.

When shopping for skirts, either go super long or super short. Never buy a skirt that hits at your calves or knees. Your best bet in this area is definitely the mini as it shows off more skin and gives the illusion of longer legs.

Heels with low vamp

Your best bet are shoes like that in neutral colors that match your skin tone or outfit to give the illusion of longer legs.
