Fashion Tips to Make you Look Taller

There’s no denying the fact that taller individuals always have it easier in life tending to make them appear more radiant and confident compared to short-statured persons. On top of that if you’re stocky, your height may make you seem shorter.
Despite the rapid strides made by medical sciences, genetics is yet to come up with an ingenious or foolproof way that’ll enable you to increase your stature. Nevertheless, here are some recommendations you can always follow that’ll make you appear taller and slenderer or at the least create the illusion. Luckily, you don’t have to spend a fortune for the same since the solutions can be found in your wardrobe:

Step Out In Your Stilettos and High-Heels

The number one tip surely is the easiest way of giving the semblance that you’re much taller and slimmer than you actually might be. Buy a couple of stylish stilettos with 3-inch heels (in case you don’t already have these) especially platform heels that have rounded or flattened toes. Stepping into these kinds of high-heels will give the impression of a heightened appearance without causing any discomfiture to your feet.

Opting For Appropriate Tops and Matters Always

It goes without saying that the more the lower part of your body is visible, (especially from the knees and downwards), the taller you’ll seem. Therefore, spare a few extra minutes in selecting appropriate tops, tank-tops, and corset. To be specific, go for tops or corsets that ends around the periphery of the waist so that the lower part of the body gets exposure. By that ruling, shun jackets or tops that conceal your legs and dwarfs your height making you look shorter.

Monochrome Is The Way To Go

Turning out in an outfit that’s unvarying in terms of colour, texture and tone is one of the most efficient strategies that ostensibly add to your stature. Of course dressing in jet-black, burgundy or peach from head-to-toe is undoubtedly the easiest way out as well as trendy. However regularly attiring yourself in ensemble of uniform colours (so that you look tall) might reveal the shortcoming you’re so desperately attempting to mask. Therefore play it safe by varying your getup-that is going for bright monochromatic colours like red, green or yellow and accentuating the variation by blending textures. Keep in mind that the idea behind going monochrome is to convey an upright or vertical impression to the viewer.

Be Highly Ambitions With Skirts or Shorts

Since you cannot extend your lower part to look elevated the least that you can do is to fool people into believing that you actually appear so. And one good way of doing so is to dress up in skirts, shorts or jeans that start high up from your waist. If you’ve a penchant for wearing trousers or pants, settle for ones that toe a vertical line all the way from waist to ankle-joint. Put the accent on waist-high skirt or shorts by first putting on a tailor-made blouse or corset.

Show Some Cleavage

Be Highly Ambitions With Skirts or Shorts

It might seem a tad crazy to you but you’ll incredibly look a few inches higher if you leave the upper part of your blazer, cardigan or pullover unbuttoned. This is one excellent way of creating an illusion of tallness where the buttons on the top end of your sweater or jacket are left unfastened.

Wear Skin-Hugging Clothes

Wear Skin-Hugging Clothes

The manner in which your apparels sit on you or rather on your skin makes a big difference on how tall you appear in onlookers’ eyes. Slipping into loose-fitting garments dwarfs or overshadows making you look shorter and stockier. On the other hand, wearing tight-fitting clothes emphasizes your silhouette giving the semblance of a lanky individual.

To say the last but not the least, maintaining an erect posture while walking or standing will work wonders when it’s a matter of looking elevated. Shun slouching, stride confidently, and above all, have a positive attitude to keep looking tall.

      Even girls with broader frame can gain with aforementioned tips. Wear high heels. Make sure you carry the ratio right, divide your dressing in disproportionate halves. It is always better, go by the rule of third, divide your dresses in 1/3: 2/3 ratio; not 1/2: 1/2. This tips will come handy always to look visually more attractive!
