How to look tall and slim

1. Opt for a monochromatic outfit..

2. Add contrast color or texture with a blazer, cardigan or overshirt..

3. Leave the blazer or cardigan unbuttoned for maximum vertical lines.

4. Any stripes on the garment should be vertical.

5. Choose scarves tied loosely with long, vertical dangling ends.

6. Match pantyhose hue to skirt or pant and shoe color.

7. Avoid big belts, which can cut you in half visually.

8. Use long necklaces or pendants and avoid chokers.

9. Wear skirts that are longer than they are wide.

10. Choose shoes with at least an inch heel -- the taller the better.

11. Elongate the neck with V-necks.

12. Strong visual elements like a bold placket or a front zipper work well.


1. Monochromatic doesn’t have to mean boring -- mix textures to keep the look interesting (i.e. knits with leather)

2. If you are petite (5’3” or under) make sure you scale everything down -- smaller prints, pockets, etc. so they don’t overpower your figure.

Don’t make the mistake of going for all long pieces. Go for contrasting proportions. Mix a longer jacket with a shorter skirt, shorter jacket with pants, etc.
