The way one dresses can affect their appearance in several ways. Wrong clothing choices can make one appear shorter than they are, while smart clothing selections can give the illusion of a taller height. It's all about fashion!

As Anna Wintour says, “You either know fashion or you don’t.” 

While there is nothing wrong with dressing in one's preferred way, as different people can like different types of styling, and who knows one's distinct style may become a fashion trend tomorrow. However, if you are someone who finds a taller appearance more fascinating, here are some wardrobe suggestions to help you get the look you desire. So get ready to view a list of styling ideas that you should include into your wardrobe right away:

Micro Print Short Dress

Get yourself a pretty short dress with tiny patterns on it to create the illusion of a taller look. Micro prints, which are teeny-tiny in size, can make a great impact by giving an extended look, whereas big prints tend to reduce. Additionally, short dresses that show off your legs will also make you appear taller.

Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes are another elegant way to create the illusion of a tall look, but with a touch of elegance. The clothes with vertical stripes can give the appearance of taller legs & more skimmed legs. However, horizontal stripes should be avoided as they may make you appear shorter.

Pointed Nude Heels

Pointed Nude Heels are the perfect pair of footwears for your tall and stylish look. These pointed shoes will make your legs appear longer as they add more than an inch or two to your feet, and heels in a nude colour will blend in with your body. All of this will make you appear taller.

High-Waisted trousers or jeans are a flattering way to look taller. These pieces, however, are not only great in making you look taller, but they also cover the stomach area, masking your stomach bulge and making you look slimmer. A higher waist will make your legs appear longer, stretching out your overall appearance.
