Rachel Bilson shares style secrets

Rachel Bilson shared the secrets behind her wardrobe on TV series Hart of Dixie.

The Hart of Dixie actress gave a behind-the-scenes peek into her closet for the series.

The petite brunette explained that she trusts the on-set costume designer Meredith Markworth-Pollack not to dress her in anything she can't pull off.

"It's hard for me to wear high-waisted shorts or jeans because I'm short. I love a nude shoe with a skirt or dress, because it elongates your legs. Anything that makes me look taller...," Rachel told the UK edition of Glamour magazine.

"I trust Meredith implicitly. Occasionally, there might be a pair of jeans I'll complain doesn't fit, but that's probably more of a time-of-the-month thing where I'm in a bad mood!"

The American star says there are similar things to consider when dressing for the screen as there are when attending high profile events. Rachel says it is important to get the fit of clothes just right as it can be unflattering to wear things that are too loose or too clingy.

"Dressing for TV is similar to dressing for the red carpet," she explained. "There are things that do and don't translate well for the camera, like something that fits really well around the hips is important. You don't want anything too baggy."
