If you wear a short dress like this Notte by Marchesa one, counterbalance the length with a high neckline to achieve a cute and fun party look. If you wear ankle-strap shoes with a short hemline, make sure the strap sits low on the foot, like Kate's. This prevents the illusion of a cropped, shorter leg.
