Tips on how to look taller

There are certainly few things in life which you cannot change about you, though, as much as you want them to. I know, a lot of them must be coming into your mind while reading this. But what i mean here is , your “height”. You cannot really do much about your height or body type as you are born with it. But this must not hamper your chances to look stylish or beautiful in certain styles or ways which are considered to look good only on the people who are tall. 

However, just because you’re short doesn’t mean that you can’t have great style or participate in an ongoing trend. But being on the petite side myself, i understand that there are still a lot of styles which we tend to ignore or pass, thinking they are not meant for us. But No ! Short girls can also wear just about anything that tall girls can wear.The secret lies in choosing the right styles in right proportions.
Just like we can use make up to enhance our looks, or dress smart to hide those extra pounds 😉 we can use few clever fashion tips and tricks to fake those extra inches as well.
Lets check those out :

Wear heels

An obvious choice for a taller look comes with a good pair of high heels. This is the safest bet to place when you want to look tall. Choose a right heel for yourself, with a  pointy toe or a low cut vamp. 

Go short, in skirts  
When it comes to skirts and dresses, you should either go super-long, or super-short. Avoid calf-length and knee-lengths because they make you look shorter. Mini-skirts show more skin, which creates the illusion of a longer leg.

Try the flared jeans

Flared jeans go well on the petite figure, as the hem just ends on top of the shoes giving an overall tall appearance. These kind of denims look good on tall women but are equally helpful for short-legged ones. A little volume at the end completes the whole tall look image.

Rock a top knot
Piling your hair on top of your head really does gives a taller impression, again creating a more vertical line. 

Go monochrome

Using color to enhance the illusion of height is a highly effective strategy, as it helps create a vertical line where as too many different colours can break up the body, making it appear shorter.Keep your monochrome outfit interesting by mixing up textures. Do remember to keep each silhouette crisp and tailored.

Wear high waist bottoms

High waist bottoms can trick the eye into thinking you’re taller by elongating your lower body. Whether its a skirt, shorts or skinny jeans, be sure to make the elevated waist visible by tucking in a tailored blouse, or opting for a slightly crop top.

Wear pointy flats
When it comes to looking taller, high heels are the best options available, but no one can use them every single day and all the time. So go with pointy flats, because the pointy toes lengthen your leg line.

Stop using gigantic bags

Every time you cause the eye to take in width, you reduce the amount of height it takes in. So using huge bags makes you look smaller in front of them. Opt for slings, cross-body bags, clutches and  small totes instead.

Style more in vertical stripes

This is heard from a long time that vertical lines make it look longer. So invest in some Vertical stripe outfits, which will  make you look, longer.

Wear V-neck shirts/tops
V-neck tops help elongate the neck and can therefore add to the illusion of a lengthened body. Tuck one into a pair of high waisted pants for a chic and stylish look.

Wear floor length maxis or gowns
Either keep it short or full length while choosing a maxi dress for yourself. The trick is to not highlight uneven points in your outfit, which eventually will make you look short. A well-cut maxi skirt or a dress can actually give you the appearance of looking taller.

Wear smaller prints 
If you’re  petite, stick to wearing smaller prints and patterns. All the fashion tips to make you look taller, says that you have to create balance in your outfit. Bigger and bolder prints throw this balance off if you’re short.

Improve your posture

Nothing works better than a good attitude, which includes the right body posture. Always keep your chin up and look straight. Avoid slouching. It not only makes you look short but also lowers your confidence.

And last but not the least, I must say, the key to look good is to believe in yourself ! To look tall is same as to look beautiful, which should come from inside and not the outside. And rest can be taken care of in keeping all these tricks and tips in mind. 🙂
