Tips On How To Have Mile-Long Legs

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Lucky Magazine did a fun little article on how to look taller with three easy styling tricks. Because let's be honest, no matter how tall or short we are, we would all love to have mile-long legs any day of the week, right? So, here are the tips.

Keep the colour palette light. Supposedly pairing up pale tones (like the dress and the shoes duo above) creates a visual space. Interesting isn't it? I must say, I simply adore that combination.

Always choose the flared fit pants. The cut makes your legs look long and lean especially if you're wearing heels.

Punctuate properly like on these two photos above. Lucky Mag says that when wearing shorter pants (or rolling them up), always leave a waistband exposed.

Lovelies, what do you think about those tips? Would you use any of them? Any other great styling tricks that you would like to share? xo

another trick : if you're wearing black tights, wear black heels. the continuous stream of color elongates your legs. hope this helps!

My legs are so short! But the flared pants tip is key. Skinnies just make me look ten times shorter.
