Eva Longoria's Top 1 Style Tip

If there's one thing Eva Longoria knows best, it's fashion.  And if we refine that statement, it's fashion for petite frames.

Eva Longoria may seem larger than life in the spotlight, but she's tiny in real life.  Standing at five-foot-two, her uber petite frame requires specific tricks that make her wardrobe work for her.

So what's her secret for looking fashionable flawless at her size?  Tailoring!  

"If you're a small person you have to alter everything" she said at a recent campaign launch for Lays.  So what does she do?  She tucks, trims, cuts and alters nearly every piece in her wardrobe, including jeans, dresses, T-shirts and more.

"I focus on proportions."  Eva says she takes in the waist on everything so that her petite frame doesn't get lost in the garment, and shortens the lengths of jeans and skirts.

This may sound like a lot of work to all our petite readers, but trust us (and Eva!) it is well worth it.  And if you find a great tailor, the cost is pennies compared to the outcome.  

So what do you think?  Will you give tailoring a try?
