9 Ways to look taller

Don't take the title wrong, we are all about body positivity. We love our body as it is but sometimes the lust in us makes us to think that it will be nice if i look taller.


Wear Monochrome

Wearing monochrome outfit or same colour clothing from head-to-toe creates one vertical line of color and thus causes the illusion of height. You can wear anything from jumpsuit to evening gown.

Wear darker colours such as black, blue, green, red, brown, purple, dark tan or dark grey to look taller and slimmer. If you want softer appearance then go for cream or ivory colour.

Wear Vertical Stripes

Striped print or pattern clothing are always in no matter what the season. Vertical Stripes outfits are the best friends of petite woman. Vertical stripes pants, jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts or suits make you look taller along with giving you a slimmer look. You can wear striped dress with open straight jacket and cardigans.

Go for thin vertical stripes. Make sure that you don’t overdo it. Don’t wear pants / skirts / bottoms with vertical lines with vertical striped shirt or top. Also, avoid horizontal strips as they make you look wider.

High Waist Bottoms

High waist bottoms: pants, skirts, skinny jeans or shorts make you appear taller by creating the illusion of longer legs. You can pair high waist bottoms with a tucked-in tailored blouse, a crop top / bralets or a button down shirt. High waist skirts should be up to the knees. Women with straight body and pear shaped body should avoid high waist bottoms.

Jeans / Trousers

When it comes to jeans and trousers prefer skinny, high waist, slightly flared one or jeans / trousers with straight legs. Straight leg jeans / trousers with a medium or dark wash will be an added bonus to make you appear taller.

Avoid 3/4 trousers or capri trousers or trousers with cuffs, bulky pockets and pleats. Do not wear low waist jeans, cropped styles pants or bell bottom pants. Slim girls can tuck in the shirt.

Slits

Skirts / dresses with slits create the illusion of having longer legs. The slits can be either on side or back. You can try a long skirt or gown with a slit on side. Say big NO to calf length clothing.

Maxi Length

Maxi dresses or skirts not only make you appear taller but also slimmer. You can wear pleated maxi skirt or floor-length maxis or monochromatic gowns, empire waist gown with flats, flat sandals or flip flops to complete your look.

Never highlight uneven points in the maxi length dresses or skirts. Tuck in your shirt with maxi skirt.

Handbag

Always carry a smaller handbag like cross-body bags, minaudières, clutches and small top-handle totes. Carrying an over-sized bag add too much width to the waist and hip.

Belt

Wear the same color skinny belts as you clothes as wide belts cut your body in half.

Hairstyle

Wear a high bun or high pony tail. This will add a little height on you.
