Hey my beautiful ladies! Some of you my ladies already have the super long, model-esque legs that lots of us dream of… However, for those of us who aren’t naturally blessed with long stems, do not lose hope. There are some sneaky ways to make your legs look long and lean. We’ve compiled a list of 6 fashion tips on how to get longer looking legs. Check them out now and enjoy!
A Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts not only slim you down, but they tend to start just below your rib cage. This tricks the eye to think your hips sit higher and your legs look significantly longer than they actually are.
Vertical Striped Pants
Vertical details draw the eye up and down, resulting in an optical trick of seeing additional length. Vertical stripes pants are very effective at lengthening the leg, because the eye immediately travels the length of your leg. The effect can be better if you choose some high-waisted ones.
A Short Dress
The more leg you expose, the longer they’ll look! However make sure you keep it tasteful, you don’t want anything too short and scandalous and don’t forget to balance out the proportion of exposure. If you go short on the bottom, be more covered up on top.
My number one favorite way to elongate my legs. When wearing skirts or dresses, choose nude heels to blend with your skin tone. They are the perfect optical illusion: they don’t break up the leg at all, so your eye goes straight to the floor. Nude sandals are a plus, because they show more skin than a classic pump.
High-Waisted Pants and Shorts
Wearing high-waisted pants is similar to wearing a pencil skirt, you’ll trick the eye to believing your hips are much higher than they are. Another tip, when you’re wearing shorts, wear heels. Showing skin plus heels is a great combination for the perfect long-legs illusion.
Bonus tip: Also, avoid ankle straps when possible if you’re going to for longer legs. They tend to cut your leg off at the ankle and give you the opposite look you’re going for.
