I must admit, being petite it’s not so easy. It took me some time to love myself as I am and I am sure that every short person has this struggle at a certain moment in life. Well, now I know that being short is simply awesome.
As a petite woman – I am only 5’2’’, I’ve always searched, invented and reinvented tricks to look taller. Sometimes I had to look taller because my job required this, other times it was just me feeling insecure with my height. Then I realized being short is not so bad, especially when you wear the right clothes.
These are my basic tricks to appear taller.
High waist jeans
I don’t actually like high waist pants, skirts, pants or jeans but they are very useful. A high waist elongates your legs. Add a classic shirt and a pair of stilettos and you have the perfect outfit for the office.
V neck dresses and blouses elongate the neck and help you look taller without having to wear high heels.
I love jackets of all kinds, but short jackets are the ones that create the illusion of longer legs and make you look taller.
This is my favorite trick because I love wearing a single color, and this one is black and dark shades. Monochromatic outfits help you look taller because they create a vertical line and the illusion of height.
Avoid big, bulky bags because they will make you look shorter. Medium-sized and small bags are the best choice.
Now, I am curious to know what are the tricks you use to look taller. Share them in the comment section below!
