I am a shortie, but the truth is I never ever cared. The only time I get bothered by it is when I am surrounded by models in heels and I have to raise my head to speak to them, otherwise who cares. I am very lucky because I am proportional and even with my tiny height I can trick some people into thinking I am not all that ‘down to earth’.
The second most common question I am asked by my clients is how to look taller (after the one about body types of course), so I thought I would gather some of my styling tips to help you guys around a bit. Do keep in mind ladies that you should not worry about what you cannot change, just improve it :)! (By the way, if you have time google Mira Duma, as she is the queen of perfect look tall outfits.)
Ankle jeans is probably the most obvious tip for looking taller, they magically make your legs look longer and skinnier as if you have outgrown them!
As horizontal stripes make you appear wider, vertical stripes do the opposite and make you look taller AND skinnier.
I keep on hearing tips about how short women should not go for maxi skirts. It is not exactly the case, because in case you do not have weight issues and wear heels, you will look much taller visually wearing a maxi dress or a skirt by creating a long vertical line. Keep in mind, it is worth to keep the top as fitted as possible not to end up looking like a bag of potatoes.
I am super allergic to girls going over mini to try to look tall when you can almost see that ass..but you can be classy enough and go simple mini and not over bitching the look.
