Q) I am 5 ft 2 in and of slim build. What jeans should I wear to make me look taller and my legs longer? (Submitted by Yogi Kong)

A) I’m 5 foot – no inches to add. I am wearing 18th Amendment’s Colbert jeans (see above) at the moment – they’re high waisted and have a fantastic flare that give the impression one is walking on stilts! And if you peek underneath you’ll see I’m not far off in this season’s huuuuuge platforms. For the first time ever I actually look tall (Answered by Donna Ida Thornton)
