Tips on clothes to make you look taller
Determining exactly what to wear when you are not very tall can be a problem, and becomes even
harder if you want to appear taller. Below are 10 great tips on how to look taller. Keep in mind everyone
is an individual and not every tip will work for you. The only way to see if these tips work for you is by
trial and error.

Stop Wearing Flat Shoes

Flat shoes have become very trendy as of late. Sadly, if you are actually thinking about looking taller, you
should not wear them. The reason is they draw eyes down, which just reinforces your lack of size. And in
fact it might make you appear shorter than you actually are if you were wearing regular footwear. A
better option is to wear a good pair of chunky shoes or medium heels




Start Wearing Bright Colors

There might be a particular part of the body which you want to highlight to appear taller. For instance
your torso is long and narrow then you can emphasize your torso to make you look taller. Then to make
this allusion happen you should buy bright and lively shirts if you are a man and blouses if you are a
woman. It doesn't matter if the color is tangerine, sky blue; lime green fluorescent pink and it can have
writing on it or be solid. If you also have nice slender legs you may need to add on to the ensemble with
bright pants as well. But usually the best match is a dark color with a bright color. So a lively green shirt
would go nicely with denim jeans.

Wear Darker Clothes

When you look thinner then you will also look taller. But as you know, not everyone is slim and fit. So
when you look thin you will also appear taller. Dark colors like black, chocolate brown, navy blue,
maroon and forest green work best for the slimming and thinning effect. Wearing dark pants and tops
may lengthen you appearance to others. This sounds like a contradiction to the wearing bright colors tip.
Just remember you need to try these methods to see if it will work for you

Putting on a long shirt or blouse can also give the appearance that you are taller. If you have the right
body type it can add a few phantom inches to your whole body. The fortunate thing is many stores will
sell t-shirts and tank tops long so they are easy to find. Because of their popularity t-shirts can now be
found for all seasons of the year. There are long shirts which are appropriate for people living in
Minneapolis in the middle of December and shirts which are also appropriate for South Beach
sunbathers in mid July.




Never Wear Crop or Capri Shorts

them look stubby and short even on a tall person. A better option is to wear longer and wider shorts like
Bermuda shorts. They cutoff just below or above the knee and your legs will appear longer. This concept
also works for skirts, when they are extremely long they draw the eye down which isn't good for
someone with height issues, and at the same time when they end near the knee the legs will appear
longer.




                     Skinny Jeans are Your Friend

Many publications and people tell you if you are short never wear skinny jeans due to the fact they
make your legs look more plump and therefore smaller. This is definitely true sometimes, but this isn't
the case all of the time. It all depends on your body type. For instance, if your legs are slender and long,
the jeans will help show off your length and therefore look taller. Usually the darker skinny jeans will
also aid you to look longer and taller. As the name implies, skinny jeans make you appear slimmer. Add
to the mix dark jeans and they may make you look taller. It all depends on your body type.

day. Nevertheless, tighter is usually best whenever it comes to looking taller. This is because it aids in

appear taller. Nonetheless, there are cases where some style experts state horizontal stripes can also
work well. The secret is to test out various kinds of stripes and see which ones gives you the appearance

buying decisions so these results.

person who isn't very tall is not the end of the world. Accept yourself; stop fixating on your height all
hours of the day and being confident will help you appear taller in the eyes of others.
