I see a lot of clothing in mags and online that look better suited for taller chicks, but I'm curious about what would look good on short girls. Everytime I buy something and hope it'll look nice on me it just looks awkward since I'm not as tall as the person or maniquin they have the item on. That's why I'm asking. .3.

I'm surrounded by short girls living in Japan, and the general idea of what I find appealing on the exceptionally short ones (less than 5 feet, e. g.), is usually things that seem to push their waist upwards.
Then might have a clothing that tapers a bit higher than the usual waistline, it kind of pushes the figure up and makes their legs look longer, things of this sort.
Also, this is not a perverted suggestion, but sometimes shorter skirts do the trick. It's not to show off the goods, it's to kind of lengthen the perception of the line of the legs, matching the higher waist.
Mostly I'd just say generally moving the waistline upwards, kind of trying to establish a lengthier figure below while shortening it above.
That's based on a Japanese fashion and figure aesthetic though, but I think it works well.
Another is just play off the cuteness of a short girl, get little matching purses and things like that. Sometimes it can help to wear clothes that drape over the entire body, match it with little cute things, play to the cute side that kind of tends to be stereotypically associated with being short.2

Dress up in a monochromatic style, meaning dress all in one color, for example all black from head to toe, and choose clothing with vertical strips. These two styles give the illusion of a more elongated silhouette, thus, making you look taller. High waisted anything whether it's shorts, skirts, or pants also help. Wear something that fits perfectly and avoid voluminous clothing as they can make you look bulky. Avoid things that tend to cut down your height such as big belts and cropped pants. One last tip, wear darker colors because they give a sleek appearance, just like the theory black gives a slimmer appearance, it can also elongate your body.
