How to dress to make your legs seem longer: five fashionable lifehacks that work wonders. Photo

Short girls know what it's like to take their jeans to a tailor right after they buy them to have them shortened to the right length. They know how to invisibly tuck a skirt in at the waist so that it is not too long. They are also immune to fatigue from wearing high heels. All of this knowledge and skill is certainly invaluable, but what about effective fashion life hacks that will help you visually lengthen your legs?

These techniques have long been used by the world's famous "inchworms". For example, Victoria Beckham, who is a style icon for a million of her fans. OBOZREVATEL will tell you about five fashion tricks that will literally work wonders for your leg length.

Shoes the color of your skin

High-heeled shoes will certainly add centimeters to your height, but it will be more effective to use shoes in a color that is as close as possible to your skin tone. This "optical illusion" will visually lengthen your leg. Nude pumps will work best with bare legs, and if you are wearing black tights, you should wear black shoes.

Pants "eat" shoes

If you analyze all of Victoria Beckham's outfits in trouser looks, you will notice that she always wears very long pants that literally drag on the ground and completely cover her shoes. This is a very effective life hack that will visually make your leg look longer. Give preference to high rise pants.

Verticals on the legs

The right use of prints solves many problems. For example, vertical stripes below the waist work real magic even with very short legs. The American socialite Olivia Palermo wears pants and skirts with vertical prints so often that we can be 100% sure of the effectiveness of this life hack. It is very important to avoid horizontals in this matter. Notice that Olivia's skirt "covers" her ankle boots. That is, there is no "bald spot" between the hem and the shoes that could spoil the whole wow effect.

The point from which the legs "grow"

It's quite trivial and simple: to make your legs look longer, make the point from which they grow as large as possible. In our case, we're talking about the waist. By the way, as a bonus, if you wear high-waisted jeans, skirts, etc., the silhouette becomes more feminine and sophisticated. Compare two images of actress Keira Knightley. In the first photo, where she is wearing heels, her legs look much shorter than in the second, where she is wearing low heels. The fit of your pants makes a big difference.

Sometimes you have to hide your buttocks

Owners of not only short legs, but also a rather voluminous rear end, will have to make sacrifices and hide their buttocks in favor of "lengthening" their legs. The fact is that anatomical bulges make the point of leg growth obvious and cannot be enhanced by a high waist. Therefore, it is recommended to cover the buttocks with an elongated jacket or cardigan.
