Monochromatic Suits

Here's a trend that has been spotted on women of all shapes and sizes. It works particularly well on petites because the consistent colors create the illusion of a longer frame. Stars like Kourtney Kardashian, who is just under five feet, consistently rely on the matchy-matchy outfit. You can add it to your closet, too, with a burgundy suit and matching shoes similar to Kardashian's (above).

This is a fall wardrobe hero that can be worn to the office or on the weekends. An easy way to style this sort of fancy skirt is with a cozy sweatshirt and sneakers, just like Kelly Ripa did above.

Tapered, Loose-Fit Pants

This one might seem a little tricky for those with shorter legs. The key to making the comfy-pants trend work is to find a pair that's tapered around the ankles. The streamlined hem gives the loose-fit pants a polished finish.
