Before we get on to the main point, don’t get me wrong. We are all humans and we love our bodies just the way they are. There’s nothing to hide about our height.
In Asian countries, you are considered petite if you are 160cm or under. If you are one of them like me, welcome to the club. I understand your struggles in finding a pair of denim jeans with the perfect length. But thankfully, there’re tons of petite-friendly fashion pieces at the market now which make our life easier. As seen on the headline, while we can’t grow any taller, we are still able to add a few inches to our height with some styling tricks. Ready for the magic? Scroll below.
Rule 1: High-Waist Bottoms
High-waist is basic knowledge. It will help to create an illusion that the middle part of your body is longer. For jeans, go with the high-waisted and dark washed. With both elements, a flared silhouette will give you more additional supports, which is the best one but the skinny or straight leg will do the work too.
For pencil or midi skirts which have longer hemlines, high-waist is extremely important to make you look taller and slimmer.
Rule 2: Wide-Leg Pants (To The Floor)
High-waist is still the key. With high-waist and wide-leg pants or trousers, make it fall all the way to the floor! Try this magic if you haven’t, the most effortless styling tricks to look taller.
Rule 3: Matching Colour From Head To Toe
It’s about monochromatic and illusion game strong. It doesn’t matter what colour you are wearing, but make sure to keep them in one hue from head to toe.
Rule 4: Crop Top
A crop top is best to style with high-waist and wide-leg bottoms to look like you are 170cm when your actual height is 150cm! Also by showing off some skin will make you look taller.
Rule 5: Downsize Your Bag
You might not know about this. The size of your bag is one of the most important elements to look taller. Avoid carrying around a big bag because it will make you look even smaller. It’s better to go with a handbag that fits your size.
Rule 6: Hair Up
If you have extremely long hair, tie them all the way up. Ponytails, messy hair buns or braids, whatever. Not only make you look slightly taller but cleaner, fresher and tidier.
It is charming and cute to be petite. With the rules, you will know how to play the game, and be prepared for all the misunderstandings on your actual height!
