  • Put on some nude-colored pumps

To create the illusion of longer legs, avoid wearing brightly coloured heels and instead opt for nude-hued footwear, particularly pumps.Nude pumps are also quite sophisticated and trendy. Furthermore, nude-colored footwear is not visually intrusive and blends with your natural skin tone, making you appear taller. Ankle straps should be avoided since they form horizontal lines on the ankle.

  • Make your body longer

Choose vertical stripes.Vertical stripes, unlike horizontal stripes, make you appear slimmer and taller by deceiving the viewer’s eyes. These stripes lengthen your figure and bring out your height. Avoid large stripes in favour of tiny ones because they are difficult to focus on. Vertically striped jackets, trousers, t-shirts, jumpsuits, and shirts are available.

  • Wear deeper necklines

Avoid tees and singlets with higher necks and go for deeper necklines like a shirt unbuttoned a little lower than usual or a v-neck top or dress.Deeper necklines elongate your frame and make you look taller as they create an illusion of length.You can even pair a lower neck top with a midi skirt or jeans.

  • Maxi and wrap dresses are your best friend

If you are short and petite, then avoid wearing shirt dresses that can swallow you up and make you look shorter.Instead, go for wrap or gathered dresses that can balance your figure.You can also try maxi dresses that narrow down at the bottom and make you look leaner and taller. They also make your legs look longer than usual.

  • Try high-waist skinny straight-leg jeans

While loose-fitting and baggy jeans are in trend now, they do not look much flattering on short girls as they look oversized and draw attention to the petite frame.Instead, invest in a good pair of high-waist skinny straight-leg fit jeans that make your legs look longer and hips narrower.Go for ankle or cropped length for the perfect fit.
