Regardless of whether you're petite or just want to look taller for the day, girls often opt for a pair of high heels to boost their heights and elongate their legs. While a pair of stilettos are fashionable and are great confidence boosters, there are days when you don't feel like rocking a pair of high heels but want to create an illusion of longer and leaner stems. You can relax because high heels aren't the only way to make your legs look longer. So scroll down because we're sharing with you some styling tips and tricks you can use to lengthen your legs in a jiffy.

Go high!

Opt for a pair of high-waisted bottoms be it a pair of jeans, shorts, or even skirt! High-waisted bottoms make your torso look longer making your legs look longer, too.

Choose asymmetrical.

An asymmetrical hemline is an easy way to keep your OOTD interesting, but uneven hemlines also makes you look taller, and your legs longer and leaner.

Keep your bottoms sleek and clean.

While playing with printed bottoms is fun, it can make you look unnecessarily bulkier. Have fun with printed tops, patched denim jackets, and so on, but keep your bottoms fuss-free for a sleeker look that can elongate your legs, too.

Don't be afraid to go nude!

While black pumps are powerful and white heels are chic, nude heels that matches your skin tone creates an illusion of longer legs. Plus, it's versatile and sophisticated, too! 

Go crop or tuck it in.

Tops that sit just above your hip bone defines your waist and makes you look taller and slimmer, too. Play with different trendy crop tops, or tuck your shirt under your jeans for a hip look that’s totally flattering, too.

Go long or go short.

While midi skirts are fashionably versatile, do avoid this cut if you're aiming to look taller. Instead, opt for maxi skirts and dresses or minis because when it comes to creating an illusion of longer stems, extremity is key.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
