Have you looked at a picture and wished that you were taller? We all desire to appear that way, but there isn't much we can do after puberty. But who says we can't employ certain methods and tips to make ourselves appear taller? While genetics plays its influence on your height, you can certainly manage the way you dress to create a major difference in your height. Exactly. Clothes, the magical thread of yarns.
Alison Deyette says, “High-waisted pants and skirts, combined with form-fitted tops, can help elongate your frame. You can also add accessories that call attention to your upper half, like bigger hats and scarves. With a little tweaking, you can make yourself tall. Sit up straight and tall so you feel confident in your own body. The better you feel about yourself, the more confident and tall you'll look.”
Here are a few tips as well as outfit recommendations to make you look taller and leaner. If you’d like to look shorter, do the opposite of what’s written. It’s a free space for you to feel.

High waisted and flared pants
High waist is a no brainer by now. Other than making your stomach look slimmer, it extends your waist-to-leg ratio, too! Also, instead of straight-leg pants, look for ones with a flare around the leg. This attracts focus to your lower half and makes your legs appear longer.
Wearing monochromatic pieces is the perfect way of making you leaner. It is due to the fact that the colours don’t crash which results in little to no contrast. Other than that, maintaining the same shade for your outfit from up-to-toe will create an illusion that makes it look like your shoes are the extension of your legs. Take a look at our Gemma Jumpsuit.
Not too tight, not too loose. This is the principle you need to live by. If you are into wearing dresses, look for ones that constrict at the waist right above the upper hips. But, if you like to wear hoodies or jackets, go for one that’s not longer than your hips. This helps your physique appear well-proportioned, lengthening your frame overall.
Note: Do the opposite if you would like to look smaller. After all, we all have our own body types and struggles. Remember that you’re beautiful either way!
