How To Look Taller and Slimmer

You don't have to wear black everyday to look your sleekest. Try these simple figure flattering tips to elongate your body.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: Varies

Here's How:

1.   Opt for a monochromatic outfit.

2.   Add contrast color or texture with a blazer, cardigan or overshirt.

3.   Leave the blazer or cardigan unbuttoned for maximum vertical lines.

4.   Any stripes on the garment should be vertical.

5.   Choose scarves tied loosely with long, vertical dangling ends.

6.   Match pantyhose hue to skirt or pant and shoe color.

7.   Avoid big belts, which can cut you in half visually.

8.   Use long necklaces or pendants and avoid chokers.

9.   Wear skirts that are longer than they are wide.

10.   Choose shoes with at least an inch heel: the taller the better.

11.   Elongate the neck with V-necks.


  1. Monochromatic doesn't have to mean boring. Mix textures to keep the look interesting (i.e. knits with leather)
  2. If you are petite (5'3" or under) make sure you scale everything down : smaller prints, pockets, etc. so they don't overpower your figure.
  3. Don't make the mistake of going for all long pieces. Go for contrasting proportions. Mix a longer jacket with a shorter skirt, shorter jacket with pants, etc.
