Sometimes fashion trends seem like they’ve been solely created and tailored for tall figures. But the fact is, anyone can make fashion work to their advantage by exercising good styling. You just have to mix and match the right pieces. Here are a few tips to make you instantly look taller:
1. Wear Monochromatic tones
A black ensemble can not only make you look taller, it can make you appear thinner too. However, this rule doesn’t just apply to darker colors. Achieve the same effect by wearing a vibrant hue from head to toe. Royal blue and red are my favorite options for this coming season. The look will instantly elongate you. For a perfect monochromatic match, pair wide leg pants with a tailored blouse, or try on a jumpsuit with a defined waist.
2. Shorts Jackets
I love that fall is around the corner! It’s the perfect time to wear a jacket that shows off the fashionista in you and makes you look put together and taller. Pair your favorite jeans with a short motorcycle jacket that sits on or above your navel to define your torso and make your legs amazingly long.
3. Vertical stripes
Make sure you wear vertical stripes; never wear a horizontal print. Stripes were a big trend for spring and summer, but you can also wear them during the fall! Yes, pull out your favorite striped piece from the closet. The vertical stripes elongate your legs. For a very polished look, add a tailored blazer to your outfit.
A deep-cut neckline that isn’t too revealing gives the impression of a longer and leaner torso. Look for the cut in tops or dresses. This style also draws attention to your face.
5. Wear pointy shoes
We all love flats. But if you want to look taller, forget the typical ballerina-style shoe. This season, find a flat with a pointed toe. This will help you to elongate the line of your feet. If you thought that running all day in heels was the only option to look taller, forget about it! Just find the pieces that work better for you.
Walk tall and stay stylish with these tips!
