When Adam meets Samar, he says her boots, skirt and tights were making her look shorter than she is. To add a few inches, Adam dresses her in mid-calf boots by Elie Tahari and matching tights.
"Someone who has thin legs can actually wear mid-calf height, but you really always have to match your shoe to your tight," he says. "It just creates a long line."
Adam pairs with Samar's red dress and coat with brown, not black, accents. "I think it's less jarring than black and red," he says. "The dress is fantastic because it has a statement necklace, which is also big this season, built right into the dress."
