There isn’t one lady who doesn’t need to be trendy, but, sadly, not all fashion trends go well with all kinds of heights and figures. That’s why when one lady wears trendy garments like they were made for her, another girl might notice herself virtually ’shortened’ by them with undesirable added volume to boot.
We can show you the way to avoid such mishaps. Here are six straightforward ways that to look taller and slimmer.
Pick The ‘right’ Shoes And Accessories
The easiest way to become taller is with high heels. the color of your shoes is also of great importance: any neutral-colored footwear can build your legs appear longer, whereas black shoes, particularly those with high lacing, can make your legs look shorter instead.
In our example, you can also see that you should not wear accessories that ‘cut’ your image on a horizontal line, such as the now fashionable choker that makes your neck appear thicker and your whole body a bit stocky.
Be Careful With Striped Prints
From this example, you’ll see that you just shouldn’t wear the currently fashionable striped clothes without careful thought.
Horizontal stripes add volume, whereas the inaccurate combination of this print and a knee-length skirt can cause you to look about an inch shorter.
A striped top with a monotone midi-skirt, on the contrary, can ’lengthen’ your shape.
Choose Jeans And Bags According To Your Height
If you’re of a smaller height and wear shortened jeans, they’ll cause you to even smaller. Mix such jeans with high-heeled shoes and a crop top.
High-waist jeans may additionally help you adjust your height and appearance taller. Vertical line accents add to the effect; for example, stripes on pants stretch the legs.
Pay special attention to the size of your bag. The best option for small women is a small bag no more than 25 centimeters wide. A fashionable shopping bag will add weight to your image.
Try Palazzo Pants
Palazzo pants are a great way to hide high heels or platform shoes, while greatly lengthening your legs and making you look taller. Try to choose simple and calm single-tone styles.
A shortened top with high-waisted pants is a combination that has been in fashion for many seasons. This trick will keep your upper and lower body proportions and make your legs look longer.
If you choose a sweater or blouse, you can wear a thin belt or, as in our example, tuck it inside your pants.
Don’t Disregard Pencil Skirts
Pencil skirts should be noted in particular: they create you look much slimmer and taller. If you don’t have a short top, a white shirt or blouse can assist you, thus always have one at hand.
In our case, it should be tucked within the skirt, which can cause you to look considerably slimmer.
Wear Shirtdresses Correctly
A shirt dress has an interesting design and goes well with almost any type of figure. However, little girls may find it strange, as if it were made for a taller person.
It can also increase the volume of the waist. This can be easily adjusted – just put on a belt and roll up your sleeves.
The perfect sleeve length for little girls is 3/4. Also, try choosing a single-tone shirtdress.
