Turns out you don’t have to be 5 foot 7 or taller to achieve the appearance of supermodel-long legs.
Take Nicky Hilton, for example, whose latest public outing taught us a lesson in the art of elongating our limbs with a simple sartorial trick.
Leaving Craig’s restaurant in Los Angeles with husband James Rothschild, the 34-year-old was spotted incorporating two trends in one outfit: the thigh-high slit and the ultra-pointy pump.
Hilton slipped on a checkered dress from sustainable fashion designer and purveyor Reformation. It was cut all the way up to there, showing off her smooth legs and giving way to a pair of Dior’s popular slingback heels in classic black and white. A fashion-girl favorite, the shoes boast white J’Adior embroidered ribbon straps and architectural “comma” heels.

It’s a clever formula that works well for all women; both high slits and pointed shoes give the illusion of height by lengthening the leg line. A simple color scheme, as proven by Hilton, also does the job.
The heiress capped her chic look with a black top-handle purse in a subtle black damask, complementing her husband who was casually clad in a dark blue polo shirt, gray-washed jeans and dark shoes. The couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary on July 10.
