Effective Ways To Look Taller – Fashion Tips For Petites

Ways to look taller

Growing up in Singapore, I have met many girls who are petite and almost every one of them complain about their height at some point. Although I am even shorter than most of them and admire ladies who are blessed in the height department, I don’t see a benefit in complaining about a physical attribute I can never change. Rather, I believe it is more constructive to find ways to look better and dressing well is the key.

When it comes to looking taller, my preferred methods include wearing high-waist bottoms (so that the total length of the lower body appears longer visually), wearing mini skirts or shorts (to give the illusion of longer legs) and to opt for maxi skirts with heels for an overall elongating effect. While I don’t wear jeans often, a pair of fitted jeans with a flare design at the bottom will also help petites look taller when matched with a pair of wedges or heels.

If you are looking for even more ways to look taller other than those I have mentioned above, here is a breakdown of other suggestions covered in this post, “How to Look Taller: 14 Fashion Tips That Really Work” –

  • Choose Heels With A Low-Cut Vamp
  • Rock A Top Knot (for ladies with long hair)
  • Wear All One Color
  • Wear Pointy Flats
  • Rock Out With Vertical Stripes
  • Ditch The Gigantic Shoulder Bag
  • Chop Your Hair (This definitely works for me!)
  • Stick With Skinny Belts
  • Be Mindful of Proportion (Important point)
  • Wear V-Necks (I am a fan of this!)

Thank you for reading and hope you find this post useful and interesting! See you.

    Haha! I feel you on the lack of height department, Prudence. Granted I’m not that petite at 5ft4 but my two brothers and my dad are tall; my brothers are 6ft1 & 5ft10 and my dad is 5ft11!

    It’s also the main reason why I love my high heels and platform shoes and flare jeans!

    These are great tips! You look amazing in your outfit and I think matching the shoe to the jean does elongate! I’m going to try some of these suggestions out! I also heard that keeping your top to one-third length of the body helps too!


    Love, Mary

    Your tips all sound very effective – I’ve actually noticed low V-neck tops really can help petite ladies appear taller, you’re right! Personally, I’m very tall – however that comes with its own set of problems haha!
