In our first blog post, we would like to introduce you to a ‘height hack’.

When it comes to height, it always seems to be a case of wanting what we can’t have. You may not be able to change the length of your leg, but you can definitely change how tall you look.

1. Play with a subtle side slit

2. Pair with your top with vertical striped bottoms

 Unlike horizontal stripes that are notorious for its widening effect, dressing with vertical stripes has a magical lengthening effect. It instantly gives an illusion of extra height to your frame. Yet, if you do not style it properly, you may end up looking like a total fashion disaster.

Pro Tip: Instead of going for a solid or printed pair of pants when getting ready in the morning, try on a pair with side stripes instead.  Side stripes will elongate your silhouette, making your legs visually longer and leaner.

3. Rock your high waisted pants/shorts

The trick to “legs for days” lies in a high waistline. Tucking a shirt into a high-waisted skirt or pants will create some confusion (in the best possible way) about where your gams actually start. This particularly works wonders for women with a longer torso and shorter legs.

4. Slip on a V neck top

Look for tops with vertical necklines. A great, classic option is the v-neck. A deep v-neck keeps the eye looking up and down, while crew necks, scoop necks, and other horizontal necklines draw the eye side to side.

5. Tie a top Knot

The top knot is your cheat code to look taller in seconds. No more poky straight hair or spending hours on a hair do. Just tie the top knot and your set to go.
