an easy way to elongate and create the illusion of length is to go monochromatic. unless you have a matching set, it might be difficult to find two pieces that are exactly the same color, and that's fine. i actually prefer when the colors are slightly different shades; it adds interest to the outfit while still appearing seamless.
