How to Look Taller
Looking taller is always kind of fun for someone who's not so tall to begin with. Fortunately, looking taller is easy to achieve and gives you more flexibility in your dress and style. The primary way to look taller is with shoes; however, use discretion when selecting tall shoes. You want them to be high enough so it actually makes a difference, but you don't want to give off the wrong image or be completely useless for everyday activities (like walking). This is where taste comes into play?you have to make the call. You probably don't want to opt for heels higher than three-and-a-half or four inches. You can also use your clothes to make you look taller. For casual occasions, wearing a nice, dark wash, boot-cut jean with a good heel really elongates the leg and definitely makes you look taller than you are. Apart from the heel, the long, slightly flared pant leg stretches your legs and makes you look taller. For a more professional setting, long dress pants with a slight boot-cut over nice dress shoes succeed in giving you height. Another way to go with business-wear is with a straight, wide-leg pant with perhaps a pinstripe to really accentuate the length of the leg. With simple solutions between short and tall the possibilities are virtually limitless to different styles, outfits, and looks!
