Try playing with proportions.  A long vest is a great start to try this style trick. Layer away while feeling long & lean. Create new silhouettes for yourself: stick with monochrome to get you going and throw on your cute kicks. *The kicks give you the groove, so if you feel short, don't flat it. Play around and remember if you feel good, you look good, so don't worry, play. 
Old fashion rules need not apply ;)
