forever21Short Legs: Mismatch Flat Bottoms & Printed Tops

Create a sense of length by mixing and matching your bikini top and bottom to for a lengthening effect – try a bikini top in this season bold print with a flat colored bottom which will draw attention upwards and stay away from boy leg bottoms!

Your best bet is a bottom with a high cut thigh which will lengthen the legs.
