how to look taller

The secret to rocking an outfit is all about a dash of confidence and style. Fashion is, after all, about finding the most flattering fit. But do you sometimes wonder how to look taller than you are? If you want to give off a look of appearing elevated, then you’re in the right place! A pair of pointed heels are an accessory that can always add to your look. But if heels aren’t always the best choice, then you’ve got to have a backup. 

Master the illusion of looking like you’ve got a few inches to top you up with the right kind of wardrobe! Choose these styling tips to help you appear taller, both in photos and IRL.

1. High-Waisted Outfits

High-waisted skirts

Wearing high-waist skirts or pants can really lend a sleek look. You’ve got a whole of options to choose from – from pencil skirts, to boyfriend jeans, Mom jeans, or even just high-rise flowy skirts. Instead of letting them rest at your waist or hips, give this a try! Don’t forget to pair them up with Thigh Shapers and Shaping Panties!

Also, if you’re opting for stripes, make sure they’re vertical, as opposed to horizontal. These will help in highlighting your torso and make you appear taller in the process.

2. Prints and Patterns to choose 

Micro-prints, smocked fits, and monochrome hues

When it comes to choosing the right prints, you definitely want to try micro-prints and shorter dresses that give the appearance of longer legs. 

Another pattern to try is a smocked bodice because it gives you a cinched effect around your torso. You may also want to dress in monochrome hues because that’ll definitely help by giving you a blocked colour look!

Ps. Try some Shaping Camis to give your torso area a smoother impression.

3. Get the ratios right!

Choose the 30:70 over the 50:50 ratio

While the 50:50 outfit ratio sits comfortably on your silhouette, it’s definitely not going to give you a tailored countenance. When you’re wondering about how to look taller, you may want to opt for a 30:70 ratio with outfits that hug your upper torso region. 

Opting for lower necklines especially V-shaped ones and close-fitting outfits to appear taller. Bodycon dresses or crop tops are a great option for you if you want to embody a chic and classy vibe.

Pick the Minimiser Bra to give your bust the right kind of support it needs under your outfits.
