Everyone knows it’s a universal fact that women love heels! It is also a universal fact that heels can hurt. But the good news is that heels don’t have to be the only way a girl can look taller. Ladies, the good news is that you have a ton of things at your disposal to help you look like you’ve gained a few inches, and they’re pretty simple to pull off too!
Here are 5 tips to help you look taller and make you feel a lot more confident…
Become A Monochrome Master
Donning a single tone outfit from head to toe will not only make you look taller, but also make you look leaner. Surprised? Don’t be, it’s quite simple how this little optical illusion works. When you wear an outfit that’s of a single shade, it conceals the separation line between your upper and lower body. Hence, your body tends to just flow from head to toe and you auto-magically seem a lot taller!
Baggy clothes are a definite no-no!
One of the seven deadly sins while trying to look tall and slender has got to be ill-fitting, baggy clothes. Baggy clothes are rightly named so, as that’s where they deserve to be – in a trash bag, where they can do no harm to your sexy and soulful figure. Avoid them at all costs as they only make you look wider and shorter. It’s best to go for something that is well tailored to the contours of your body, so that it cuts off inches of your sides and adds them to your vertical appeal. Also remember to avoid outfits that are too flared out, have too many seams or use extremely thick fabric.
Vertical stripes are your friends!
As stripes are back in vogue these days, it presents you with the perfect excuse to pick up a pair of snazzy pants with vertical stripes. The long lines running down your legs accentuate their length, making you look a whole lot taller. Keeping that in mind, it is worth noting that horizontal lines will have quite the contrary effect, making you look short and chunky. Avoid horizontal lines at all costs!
Buns add height up top!
A simple yet great way to add a few inches to your appearance is to simply tie your hair into a bun. Not only does this help you appear a few inches taller, it’s also a great way to take a break from your regular go-to hairstyle. Try it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Switch to a smaller bag
Yes ladies, when it comes to looking tall, size does matter! Would you believe that the bag you wear has a direct impact on how tall you look? The science behind this is pretty simple really, the bigger the bag, the smaller you look in relation to it! So remember to KISS ladies – keep it small and simple!
Now that you know the secrets to looking taller, get out there and flaunt your newfound height, ladies; the men will surely go all gaga over you!
