Ways to Dress Taller

I am relatively short, which is okay because I believe you can reach everything you want while being short.

Your height is a product of genetics, nutrition, and — according to our mothers — whether or not you hefted all twenty pounds of textbook in your backpack throughout high school.

But, you can still stick it to Mother Nature if you’re still dying to look just a little bit taller. Check out the tips below to cheat with your height without having to take any hormones:)

Colorblocking — Large blocks of color elongate, so really take advantage of the colorblocking trend by finding solid-hued tops and bottoms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High Waists — Anything with a higher rise will elongate your legs. Find skirts and trousers that hits at your natural waist (or, if you’ve got more of a narrow, straight build, right at your belly button)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nude Pumps — Any heel that shows off the tops of your feet without straps to interrupt the line (i.e. pumps) is going to make your legs look longer. Really take it to another level by picking one in a nude color, that basically extends the line of your leg to the ground.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cropped Tops — Now, I’m not talking about Clueless proportions. Tops that stop right at your waist make your legs seem longer. We love wearing our shorter sweaters with swing dresses and full skirts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Choker Necklaces — Just go with us on this one… it works, we promise! Choker necklaces draw the eye up and make your neck look longer. Chokers that sit right at the base of your neck tend to look the most natural.
