Old School: Short women can't wear flares.

New Rule: Petite gals can wear everything their taller friends can—they just have to keep proportions in mind. To make your legs look longer, choose a higher waist. The pants should be tight and fitted to the knee. And look for a flare that's wide enough so you can hem the pant without ruining the silhouette.
