Not all of us were born with supermodel proportions but many of us wish we had been. I for one like being short but when it comes to style, a few extra inches never hurt anyone. I’ve got a few stylist tricks that will make you look a little bit taller.
Okay this one is kind of Captain Obvious but did you know that wearing the right kind of heels can make you look even taller? Pointed toe shoes help draw the eye down and helps elongate your legs. This trick even works with flats if you aren’t one for heels.
Be careful with this one because high-waist pants and shorts can look a little funky on some body types, however a high-waist skirt is almost always a win. This silhouette will make your legs look a mile long. More of a dress girl? This trick works with empire waist cuts as well.
Ditch the classic horizontal stripes and trade them in for something vertical. You can also create lines with seams, patterns, and other fun details. Another V-related trick is to wear a v-neck top or dress.
Avoid things that will make your legs appear shorter like an extra long top, flats with an ankle strap, and (excuse me while I throw up in my mouth) capri pants. These items will break up the body instead of giving you a nice long look.
