With spring just around the corner, it’s time to keep an eye out for spring clothes with alter egos. Clothes need to not only look great but also make us feel great — while camouflaging our not-so-favorite parts.
Wedge heels are great if you want to add some height to your stature, show a bit more leg and give your legs a toned appearance. They’re perfect for when you haven’t had time to hit the gym lately but want to look like you have.
If you’re short (or have short legs) but still want to rock shorts and skirts, wear jewelry. Necklaces and bracelets draw the eye up and away from the shortness of your legs and onto your amazing jewels.
If you are worried about losing your waistline in that must-have spring dress or tunic, try a fitted denim jacket. Make sure that the bottom of the jacket hits just below your waist to make your curves pop in any tunic.
Spring tends to creep up on us, and before we know it, we’re wearing sandals again. That means getting pedicures and touching up that chipped polish. When you don’t have the time for that, though, your toes are looking far from sandal friendly, throw on a pair of Keds. They are cute and comfortable — and no one will know about the state of your toes.

If you’re not quite ready (or willing) to don a pair of short shorts, try knee-length shorts instead. They’re in, and they’re perfect for keeping your legs covered comfortably and stylishly.
If you’re still pale from winter but really want to wear a new short dress or top, a great pair of leggings will tide you over until you have time to get outside or go for a spray tan.
If you’re feeling a bit insecure about the winter weight around your middle, a silk top will make you feel great without making you feel constricted. Silk tops that are loose around the middle and fitted around the arms and chest are best. Stay away from baby doll shirts, which are unflattering to most figures.
Ankle-length pants are great when you’re not quite ready for shorts yet or are concerned about the way your legs look in shorts and skirts. The higher waist helps give your legs a longer look, and a dark wash is slimming.
Springtime and cardigans go hand in hand. If you’re concerned about your arms or your lack of summer color, throw on a cheery colored cardigan — and the only thing people will notice is how great you look in that sweater.
You either love them or you hate them; however, if you’re worried about your legs, stop. All you need is a nice floral-print skirt, at any length you like.
