Wedding season is here and we are super excited to take out our ethnic outfits. The most trending Indian outfit of 2022 is definitely sharara and I’m sure that you are planning to wear it this wedding season.
It looks super pretty when paired up with heels. However, not everyone is comfortable with heels. If you are one of them, then you are at the right place. Follow the tips below to look tall in a sharara without wearing heels.
Opt For Short Kurti
The length of the kurti also matters a lot. You shouldn’t opt for a kurta that is too long as it can make you look short. You should go for a short length kurta as it makes your legs look longer, thus giving an illusion of length. This way you will look tall.
If you opt for a long kurta, then it will hide most of your legs, thus making you look short. This is because long legs give an illusion of length.
Instead of choosing different colours for your sharara, kurta and dupatta, go for a monochrome outfit. This means opt for a sharara that is of a single colour including sharara, kurta and dupatta.
This is because, if you choose for different colours, then it creates a horizontal visual breakdown. You have to avoid visual breakdown in your outfit as this breaks the illusion of length.
If you are going to wear a monochromatic sharara, then the illusion of length is maintained as there is no breakdown in your outfit. Thus, it makes you look tall without going through the hassle of wearing heels.
Dark Colours For The Win
We know that pastels are in trend and you want to keep up with the trends but your first priority should be choosing the outfits that suit you. Dark colours should be your preference if you want to look tall. We already know that dark colours are helpful in making us look slim but they also make us look tall.
This is because light colours make you look bulky and heavy, thus making you look short. You can opt for colours like black, navy blue, violet, bottle green and more if you want to look tall. Also, dark colours look classy and are perfect for any occasion.

Big Prints Are A Big No-No
Shararas come in different styles and designs. We have already told you to go for dark coloured monochrome outfits. However, if you want to opt for a printed sharara, then don’t go for heavy prints.
We are not saying that you can’t wear heavy outfits. We are just telling you to go for small prints if you want to look tall. Larger prints draw attention to your frame which will make you look short. A sharara with small prints will give a lengthening effect, thus making you look tall and lean.
Opt For Vertical Stripes
When we are on the topic of prints, let’s also talk about stripes. Always opt for vertical stripes if you want to look tall. Horizontal lines should be avoided. You can get a sharara in vertical stripes or you can opt for a vertical striped kurta. Just make sure to stay clear of horizontal stripes.
Correct Sleeves Are Important
Sleeves are another important thing that can make a difference. If you go for exaggerated sleeves, then they will add width to your sharara, thus making you look bulky and heavy. A bulky and heavy outfit always make you look short.
Therefore, opt for cut-sleeves or you can opt for long sleeves as well. You should also avoid short sleeves and try to stay clear of heavy embroidery on the sleeves.
