Let's All Applaud VB's Incredible Trick That Makes Her Look Taller

There is much we have to learn from Victoria Beckham: Her Little Black Dress collection proves just why this investment should never be overlooked, she's flying the flag for this season's corset trend already and there's even the fact that high-heel fanatics the world over have sidestepped skyscrapers thanks to VB giving the green light to sneakers (in public, no less). Talking of which, this flat-shoe 180 may be in part due to a clever outfit trick we've noticed the designer doing.

By wearing separates (usually a skirt and top) but choosing them in a matching fabric or one exact colourway, you can instantly look taller. So while you think it may only be a super-skimming dress or long trousers worn with stacked heels that can do some clever body-extending trickery, this actually works like a dream—even with some pretty tricky proportions like dropped waists or prints like horizontal stripes. It's so effective that we've noticed the star barely wears any other combination right now.

Go through the gallery to see Victoria's styling moves in action, and then shop for some matching pieces to be a few inches taller tomorrow.
