4. vertical stripes

Clothing printed with vertical stripes illustrates longer patterns that flow along with your body, making you look thinner and taller, as opposed to horizontal stripes with patterns that go from side to side, making you look wider.

3. monochrome look

Sporting a single color can make it appear like you have an elongated frame since there is continuity in your look, while mixing colors highlight where your upper body ends and lower body starts.

You can also just focus on matching your bottoms and shoes to lengthen your legs.


2. skin-tone heels

Wearing heels in the same color as your skin tone makes it seem like your legs extend longer.

The easiest trick is to wear floor-length articles that could cover your sky-high heels or platform shoes underneath. No one has to know about your killer 7-inch pumps if no one can see it!
