How to fake mile-high legs: 5 styling tricks
We love a good runway show.. each time we end up mesmerized by the models.. Those legs! Sky high! What we’d do for a pair of pins like that.. Unfortunately not everyone is blessed with beautiful long legs. : Always wondered how to elongate your legs with clothes? Here are some useful tips to optically lengthen your legs!
- Cropped jeans!
No harm in cheating just a little.. By wearing a cropped jean with some cool boots you will optically create some extra length. Choose a boot that is tight fitting around the ankles like a sock boot, you’ll be bang on trend as well.
- Play with shapes.
By playing with shapes you can optically alter your silhouette. Try pairing a pencil skirt with an oversized sweater to smuggle in those extra inches. Bonus: The sweater will make your legs look thinner (winner).
By wearing A-lined dresses or skirts just below the knee you can elongate your legs. Plus this shape is super flattering for your pins. Pay attention to the top of choice, wearing a loose fitting top can make your figure look boxy.
- High waisted
Easy does it: by elongating your waist, your legs automatically look longer. Try finding a high-waisted pair in a solid colour to strengthen the effect. Hello sky-high legs! A black pair with black heels or boots always works, too.
Wait what, flatforms? Yep, those fashionable platform shoes without heels! Flatforms tend to be chunky, which brings the attention to your ankles. The height of heels, without the pain!
Supermodels beware, there are some new long legged babes in town! 😉 Shop the latest musthaves to complete the look.
