4 Outfits that Makes your Legs Longer
If you want a rounder butt, you can do millions of squats. If you want bigger boobs, you can, ahem, go to a doctor’s office. If you want longer legs, though, you’re out of luck. Unless, of course, you create an optical illusion with one of these four outfits which would help you fake the Karlie Kloss-like stems.
WEAR ALL ONE COLOR
Monochromatic outfits2 create a long line and makes you look taller automatically. This works for pretty much any color, but an all-black ensemble has the extra perk of being slimming and lengthening.
TRY A CROPPED JACKET
Can you tell where her torso ends and her legs begin? Because we can’t, and that’s the point of outfits3 like these. Since jackets typically hit at your natural waist, raising the hem a bit makes it look like your waist is much higher than it actually is. This works with higher-cut pants, but we love the additional waist-locating confusion that a looser dress causes.
FAVOR HIGH-WAIST SILHOUETTES
A general rule of thumb for making your legs look longer: Choose bottoms that hit above your natural waist. By faking a higher waistline, your legs look like they begin at least a few inches before they actually do. To really go all out with this, pick pants that sweep the ground and then, of course, wear heels underneath.
PAIR A HIGH-WAIST WITH A CROPPED TOP
We’ve already praised high-waist pants for their uncanny ability to make you look taller, but to double-down, pair yours with a slightly cropped top, which makes your torso look shorter (therefore making your legs look longer).
