How to Look Tall

A few simple tips can add inches to your height.  If you can’t be tall you might as well look it!

Long and Lean

Who doesn’t want to look a little longer and leaner?  Try these tips to add some height and take off a few pounds.

  • Expose your slimmest bits like your wrists, collarbone, or ankles so eyes are drawn to your narrowest body parts.
  • Show a little bit of leg.   This creates visual elongation. The best hemline is at the knee or slightly above the knee.
  • Think column.  Dress in a mono-chromatic color scheme from head to toe. This causes the eye to move vertically versus horizontally.
  • Fall “hem over heels”.  Wear a heel and make sure your hem falls over your shoe without bunching and dragging on the floor.
  • Create visual interest at your tallest point. Add a little volume at your crown or pile your hair on top in a simple up do.
  • Wear a v-neck and long, narrow accessories to reinforce the vertical movement.
