1. Wear the Flare!
Fitted jeans with a distinct flare at the bottom, create the illusion of a longer leg and can be used with a waist length top. Remember to have the hem of the pants hit the top of the heels that you’re rocking that day!
2. More Maxi Skirts Please!
A well-cut maxi skirt can give the appearance of looking taller. Choose a solid version that skims the length of your body to create a long vertical line. ( keep your top fitted, of course) Have the hemline go as long as you can go, without tripping, and have wedges or heels underneath.
3. Low Cut Vamp
Vamp is the portion of the shoe that cuts across your foot at the front or the base of the toes. Instantly elongate your legs with a low cut vamp, and for the mile-long legs, find a pair of flesh-toned heels.
4. Wear V-Neck Blouses…
Tops with plunging v-necks give the illusion of a longer, leaner torso. so keep this in mind when shopping for this season’s tops…
5. Wear all one color…
This is a trick for all body types to look chic and give a long vertical illusion. When dressing monochromatically, your outfit has one uninterrupted line from head to toe that elongates your silhouette, making you appear slimmer and taller than you actually are.
