I am going to a dance with my best guy friend and it's a woman pays all. I want to look good, but the thing is that he is sort of short. I really just want to know what to wear. Thanks!
What would you normally wear? Whether or not you choose to wear heels depends on how much self confidence you and your escort have. I know guys who don't care if the girl that they are with is taller than them or not.
Flats are going to keep you from appearing a lot taller. Don't wear your hair in a big poofy style which will help to shorten yourself from head to toe.
I agree with both "Lorelei" and "redhatterb". No poofy hair or high heels if your date is self-conscious of his height, that's just common courtesy. Otherwise, dress as you would without this consideration. Since you previously mentioned he was a best friend and not a new boyfriend, I'm guessing you know what will make him most comfortable and will dress accordingly.
I hope and suspect you know this, but high heels, high hair, fancy clothes and make-up don't make you more attractive to a dear friend: What makes a gal truly attractive to those she cares for is her kindness, compassion, and composure. Relax, be yourself and best wishes that the two of you have a great time! :-)
Wear flats, and other than that dress appropriately for the event.
Personally speaking my honey is 5'5" tall and the biggest little man I have ever been around. While I am 6'1" tall, he refers to me as 'his own personal model'. Really to us it doesn't matter that I am taller then him because when we sit down we are still eye to eye & when we lay down we are nose to nose and very comfortable with ourselves and you should be too! Good luck honey.
My son-in-law is an inch taller than my daughter. For their wedding, My daughter picked shoes she loved (not real expensive) and had a shoemaker cut the heels down. You'd never know they weren't made that way! In her wedding pictures, they are the same height. I think she obsessed more than my SIL about this! You could try something like this if you don't want to wear flats.
