7 Fashion Tips To Look Taller

7 Fashion Tips To Look Taller

Are you a petite woman under 5’4″ and want to appear taller in your clothing?  We have got 7 fashion tips to look taller (and leaner)!  These are simple tricks and tips and will add the illusion of height!  Things you may want to avoid are capris with flat shoes.  Capris are great but wearing them with a little heel will look much better if you are petite.  Carrying a huge handbag will throw off proportion so scale down your bag to a bit smaller size.  Also try not to cut yourself in half with a top and pants in different colors.  Wearing the same color head to toe is a better choice if you are looking to appear taller.

Here are our tips to look taller in a flash!

Wear all one color. This creates a vertical line which gives the illusion of height. Black is slimming and wearing it head to toe is also very chic. Other dark colors like a rich brown, deep red, dark charcoal or other saturated hues work well too! Photo: Getty Images Entertainment: Thinkstock
