Many short women wish they wear taller, but what if I told you that you can look taller instantly just by the clothes you wear? In this video, I tell you how to dress when you are short for women over 40.
I’m fairly short myself and I know what’s its like to wish I was taller.
There is nothing I can do about that, but I can choose to wear clothing that suits my small frame and make me look taller than I am and so can you. I’m going to share with you my top secret tips to dressing yourself tall.
Wear short length dresses and skirts: Dresses that are shorter make your legs appear longer. If you don’t like your legs, wear tights or leggings underneath or opt for an over the knee boot.
Wear high waisted pants: This works like wonders to make your legs appear longer than they are. You can take this look further by adding a slight heel and tucking your tops into your waistband.
Wear slim leg, bootleg or wide leg trousers with a heel. Slim leg pants will cover part of the shoe, giving you a longer line. If you wear wide leg or bootleg pants or jeans, the flare will cover the heel and no one will be the wiser.
When wearing ankle boots with jeans, either tuck them in or fold them just above. The eye is a funny thing, it goes to where there is skin and can shorten your look.
Avoid anything ¾ length. Contrary to popular belief, this is going to make you look shorter than you are. Wear nude shoes. This makes it look like your foot is an extension of your foot. Choose a shoe close to the colour of your skin or even a metallic for a trendy look.
