My fellow short girls are loling as they read this title. Being petite since I was 18 years old, I have always worked to find simple (and inexpensive) ways to give myself some extra height when I can. Today, I am sharing 5 simple ways to make yourself look taller if you are petite. Bookmark this page in case you need it later. Trust me, this is a post that is going to be super informative!
Choose pointed shoes instead of rounded ones
This is a simple trick to help elongate your legs. When you are shopping for pumps, look for ones that are pointed instead of rounded. This simple trick is an easy way to make yourself look taller in dress pants, jeans or any look for that matter!
Ditch scoop neck tops. Instead, opt for V-necks!
When you pick a V-neck top, you automatically give the illusion that your petite frame is not so petite.
Tuck in your shirts
Speaking of shirts, tuck them in! This simple solution is an easy way to make yourself look taller plus shows off your gorgeous petite frame. Even with a massive tulle skirt, tucking in my shirt allows me to not compromise my height!
Break out your long necklaces
This is one of the fastest ways to give the illusion that your torso is longer than it is.
Make high waisted jeans and shorts your best friend
I will literally have a meltdown if this trend goes away (lol). High waisted jeans and shorts not only flatter petite frames but they also give some extra height to your look.
