5 Fashion Hacks To Look Taller


Being petite is isn’t a bad thing at all, but feeling squatter than you actually are is. It does not mean that you have to stay away from the fads ruling the style runways, it only means you have to adapt them to suit your frame. Your best bet is to rely on a few clever fashion tips and tricks to fake those extra inches. Here are 5 ways to instantly look taller using nothing but what you’ve got in your closet.


  1. Use Thigh- High Slits

Slit skirts have been on the radar this season, and they can also help make you appear taller. A slit up the front, back or side can all create flattering vertical lines. A deep, V-neck draws the eye up and will make you look inches taller in an instant.

  1. High Waist Bottoms

High waisted jeans, trousers, skirts, and shorts actually look great on shorter girls. If worn correctly, they can trick the eye into thinking you’re taller by elongating your lower body. Be sure to make the elevated waist visible by tucking in a tailored blouse, or opting for a slightly cropped top.


  1. Monochrome

A monochrome outfit can help you look taller and leaner. Too many different colours can break up the body, making it appear shorter. Styling an outfit in just one colour keeps everything streamlined. Keep your monochrome outfit interesting by mixing up textures.

  1. Maxis

Short people are actually asked to shy from maxi dresses. Long dresses actually take the emphasis away from your length and focus on the overall shape. Just opt for the right length; the ones that end at the ankle or graze the floor are not right for you. Pick the ones that touch your toes. Wear a slim belt to accentuate your frame and you are ready to stand tall!


  1. Pointy flats

The kind of footwear you wear with your dress also helps in making you look taller. It is recommended to opt for the flats that have pointy-toes that you can team up with any short dress or ankle-length pants. And if you love wearing boots, then pick the ones that end just above the ankles.
