Fashion is magic and magic is all about illusions. The right color and style can make you look taller and thinner and will compliment the workouts you’re doing at the gym. And when you meet your fitness goals, what better way to celebrate than to buy new clothes?
We can’t all be a 6-foot tall model, but that doesn’t mean we can look our tallest! Good posture and a confident attitude are mandatory for every fashionista. So is stocking your wardrobe with the right clothes to help you look thinner while you wait for the scale to catch up.
Here are ten fashion tips to make yourself look taller!
1. High heels can solve any problem.
Wearing high heels will obviously make you look taller, but shoe color can be just as important as shoe height. Wearing heels that match your skin color or your hosiery will make your legs seem like they are going on forever. It’s all about forming a clean line. Avoid strappy heels, ankle boots and chunky shoes – they will attract attention to your ankles, add bulk and make you appear shorter.
2. Go high and go wide.
Flared, high waist pants give the illusion of longer legs. Flare jeans are flattering because they elongate your legs when paired with chic heels. The higher the better! Avoid three-quarter style pants or cropped shorts because their edgy cut make your legs look clunky. Choose pants that skim the top of your shoes. If you can make them touch the floor, even better!
