We love fashion and it’s impossible to escape experiments with our looks. For those who want to look a little taller, we have compiled tips from professional stylists that are sure to help you.
10. V-neck blouses
These blouses and sweaters open the neck and make the whole body longer and taller. Unlike the turtleneck, which visually cuts into your silhouette, what you really need is a V-neckline. A shirt with a crew neck can also be a good option if the fabric is light enough and doesn’t make the neck look heavier.
9. Long slits
A cut looks good with both high heels and flats. Remember this simple rule: a light fabric skirt looks great with a long slit, but it’s best to be careful with thick fabric so as not to distort the silhouette. Pay attention to skirts and dresses with side slits as they match everyone and have never been so fashionable.
8. Flared pants
This tailoring is worth trying for both tall ladies and delicate petites. These pants stretch your legs a lot and also look great both as a casual outfit and for the night if you wear a nice blouse and accessories with them.
Remember that if you have a slim figure, you can wear wide-leg pants and also those in which the enlargement begins at the knee. If you have a curvy body, you should go for the knee extension.
7. High-waisted pants
Despite their extreme popularity, low-waisted pants really do cut the silhouette. If you do not want to visually lose a couple of centimeters, you should choose a high waist.
High-waisted pants, shorts, and capri pants make your legs look longer and your body taller. Remember that this rule does not work with skirts.
6. Maxi skirts with crop tops
A perfect look to go out. Long skirts and short tops go well together, creating a sleek and elegant silhouette. It is worth remembering that it is better to be attentive when choosing the fabric for this look. Light and heavy fabrics will look great for both casual and evening wear, but a slim shirt can be your enemy.
5. Vertical stripes
A vertical stripe can be a boon for those who want to look taller – it stretches the entire silhouette and visually adds a few inches of height. The stripes can be of various colors and thicknesses. Remember that this print has its own rules of use: no more than 2-3 colors in a garment. And yes, stripes look amazing on thick, heavy business-wear fabric.
4. Neutral shoe color
Of course, high heels are the most obvious decision for anyone looking to look taller, but heels can have different looks and effects. Chunky, heavy, and brightly colored shoes will draw attention to your lower body, while a pair of stylish pastel heels can elongate your legs and visually increase your height.
Remember that for fall it is better to opt for high or cut ankle boots because mid-calf ankle boots will make you look lower visually.
Don’t be afraid to wear overalls! They suit everyone, be they slim or curvy. Overalls visually unite and lengthen the silhouette. Remember that the right jumpsuits should draw attention to your waist, but it is best to avoid emphasizing your hips.
Mini skirts may appear to have a silhouette, but if you choose them well, they can work like magic. Remember that if you want to look taller, say ‘no’ to fitted skirts and choose a circular skirt.
High-waisted mini skirts can also add a few inches to your height, regardless of whether you wear them with high heels or sneakers.
1. Pants and shoes in one color
When wearing pants or pantyhose, it is best to choose the same color for your shoes. Remember that shiny pantyhose visually divides the silhouette into two parts, while matte pantyhose and pants lengthen it and make you taller.
Dark shoes go well with black pantyhose, and colorful shoes will go well with matching pants.
