Correct your posture
Walking tall is key when trying to look taller. Make the most of every single inch you have in your body. Shoulders back, stretch your neck and not only will you look taller but this corrected posture will also make you feel confident. Try it, you´ll see.
Create monochromatic looks
If you dress from top to bottom in the same colour or at least in similar tones you will create a vertical effect, which will help you look taller and slimmer.
Wear V necks
Any top, shirt, coat, jumper… with a V neck will emphasize the vertical effect we are trying to achieve.
Choose vertical stripes
Talking about verticality, what better to look taller than wearing clothes with vertical stripes? The thinner the stripe the better.
Go for high-rise trousers and skirts
High-rise trousers and skirts will make your legs look longer. Add them to your wardrobe if you want to look taller.
Footwear will by you ally
High heel shoes will obviously make you look taller immediately. If you are not used to super tall heels go for a pair of shoes with thicker ones to be more comfortable. If you choose them in a nude, beige similar to your skin colour, with “cleavage” and pointy you will be definitely creating that more slender figure you are aiming for.
Your hairdo can also help you
Expose your neck, wear your hair up and create high buns, which will add inches immediately.
Garments with a low rise, as they will make your legs look shorter.
Accessories such as necklaces which are too chunky and closet o your neck.
Wide belts as they will divide your body in two very obvious halves and this will not help you look taller.
Any shoe that ties at the ankle as this will also make your legs look shorter.
