You envy those with long legs and curvy figure girls?You cursing God for giving you a short stature?
Don’t waste your time on cursing God and your genes,Start thinking wisely because , height has nothing to do in looking good.You can wear all those cloths which those curvy 5’5 odd models wear, but just need to be wise in selecting your colors, prints and right accessories.
Using right colors, accessories ,prints can create an illusion of height.

I can’t give you tips to become taller because our height is decided by genetic and biological factors which cannot be changed, but I can give you few fashion hacks and tips which can create an illusion of being tall.

  • keep your hair short. Have a shoulder length or little shorter than shoulder length   hair. Long hair makes your height to drown in your own hair and can’t create an illusion of being tall.    
  •  If you have long hair, go for a high pony and try to keep your hair up and back.
  •  Go for those bumpy hair styles. It’s a good way to create an illusion of being tall.

Go for V neck lines, deeper cut blouses or dresses. Showing skin at right places makes one looks taller. Avoid close collar, high neck, and other horizontal neck lines which cover your entire neck area.


  • Wear skirts above the knee length. Showing your bare legs makes one look taller.
  •  Skirts or pants choose for a high waist bottom. Low bottom waists makes one look shorter. Creating an illusion of being taller is all about propositions and High waist always makes your leg look longer.

  • Wear monochromatic outfits
  • Wear dark colors, as it gives sleek elongated look for shorter girls
  •  Dressing in same color from top to bottom also creates illusion of height.

  • Don’t go for bigger prints. Usually it makes women look petite. Go for smaller prints.
  •  Go for vertical line or vertical prints clothing, it enhances the illusion of height.
  • Is there is any other better way other than high heels to look TALL?Wear heals to look tall.
  • For office wear, opt for wedges as it gives taller appearance and comfortable to walk.
  • Choose your foot wear carefully- go for nude or lighter color footwear. If not match your foot wear with your bottom color.But don’t go for a brighter color foot wear just to match your top.You may look like a vase on high table. So avoid brighter and flashy color foot wears if you are wearing a lighter shade bottom.
  •  Avoid ankle straps as it gives thicker look on your legs.

  • Go for long hanging accessories, avoid neck chains / accessories which are  big and going to be tight around the neck as it makes your short height obvious.
  • Use thin belts around the waist. Big belts are big 'no' as it makes your height very obvious.
  • Avoid big and over sized bags.
Petite or tall, love yourself and you only look as fabulous and beautiful as you feel, so do not forget to wear your confidence.

Love yourself
