A similar dress detail ties different looks together. Here, ruffles create a fashionable bond between the girls.
Left: The ruffled halter top of this sage two-piece outfit falls below the waist, lengthening a short torso; a fitted silk-charmeuse band contours the waist. Top, about $198; bias-cut skirt, about $225; Jenny Yoo Collection. Earrings, Monet Jewelry, 800-555-9838.
Right: A tall girl can wear just about anything, like this silk-charmeuse ruffled V-necked wrap dress with a high-low bias-cut hemline; its diagonals soften her vertical proportions. About $472, Jenny Yoo Collection. Shoes, Stuart Weitzman. Earrings, Blair Delmonico, 212-246-6580.
