Sometimes, a simple choice could make the difference between looking tall and looking short. It all depends on visual illusions that alters shade, light, shape and length. Try these life saving hacks to look taller than you really are.
1. Pick the right sleeves
A small figured lady should always avoid full, loose sleeves. Normally, you should roll the sleeves up your arms to make a visual cut of the full length. Abstain from wearing cuff or bat sleeves as they will turn the focus on your arms and make them look chubby. For a casual look, it is always best to wear a shirt or a blouse with regular sleeves. Regualr sleeves mean drama-free sleeves or fullness that grabs attention.
2. What about a long dress?
For a petite figure, it is advised to try long and maxi dresses. This kind of dress is going to give you a slim proprtional look. Trade your A line dresses with straight fit ones and do not be afraid of experimenting.
3. Choose the right belt
With the right belt, you will complement your look and highlight your waist. Opt for a thin slick belt for your dress, pants, or even shorts instead of broad belts. Broad bulky belts will look poorly proportioned on your body.
4. Gotta go with the heels!
Heels are girl’s best friend! When you want to look taller, it is always vital to pick the right heels. However, do not trade your comfort with anything specially because it always shows if you are not wearing the right heels. Choose a comfortable fashionable height for your heels and remember that the right shoes should make you glide easily when waking. As for the style, you could pick wedges, platform heels, pencil heels or even ankle strap sandals. Ankle strap sandals have certain glamour to them; they will make your legs look pretty and proportioned.
5. Dark hues
It is always a good idea to try dark hues of the colours you love, after all you will not change the colours you love. Opt for darker shades of the same colours you love and you are used to wear, this will flatter your silhouette and make it appear longer.
These few easy tips can alter your whole look! Try them and stop worrying about your height. Remember, beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and heights.
