Tips to Long Enviable Legs

The Magic of High Heel Shoes

To start with, always wear shoes on high heels. The higher the heels are, the better your legs will look. This adorable creation of fashion is number one help in this respect. Heels make your legs look longer, slimmer, and nicer. Especially if you are wearing a dress and a light pair of shoes on thin heels, the victory is over you. Extremely high heels are an ideal choice for short cocktail parties or other ceremonies, but for a daily use, you may feel a bit uncomfortable in them. So always keep alternatives. Make sure you have a couple pairs of medium height heels.

High heels will not only make your legs look longer, but also help you get rid of other problems as well. If your legs are short and at the same time full, heels will help you appear with several pounds less than you originally weigh.

Avoid wearing blunt shoes. They will make your legs look rough.

Wear high waist miniskirts and dresses with mini length

The more skin is seen, the longer your legs will look. High waist is the best means to long your legs. They give the illusion that your legs are too long.

Choose slim-fitting dresses that will embrace your body. Avoid shapeless and loose dresses. You will be lost in them, especially if you are of small sizes. Leave these dresses for taller and fatter girls.

Complete your look with a choice of pantyhose. Regardless of the season, pantyhose can be worn on different occasions. They work well with high heel shoes, making your legs smoother and thinner. Hosiery of dark colors should be an inseparable part for any dresses.

Avoid knee-socks, however. Your legs will be visually divided into two parts, thus look even shorter.

Rush for Skinny jeans

This part of your garment will do the job for you. Those skinny jeans tend to show even the shortest legs longer. Choose dark colors of jeans.

Avoid dropped waistbands or any other low-waist pants. By choosing a higher waist, you will make people think, that your legs start from a higher point. Also say good-bye to wide-legged pants. They will be of no use to you.

Choose a correct, matching shirt or a blouse

Do not take long blouses that reach your back. They will lengthen the upper part of your body and will work against your legs. Short V-neck blouses, short tops or shirts with your collar up are most acceptable. Give preference to tops with vertical lines. They normally make your body longer. Horizontal ones, on the contrary will even shorten you.

Other tricks that can help you are additional accessories. If you are wearing high waist skirts or pants, and it seems to you, that by making your legs look longer, you have mechanically shortened your top, then do not worry. You can wear long necklaces or earrings, which will make your neck look longer.

If you have a weakness for belts, then wear them on the right place. Either wear them beneath your bust or on the waistline. Never wear them on your hips.

Another thing to do is do your hair correctly. If your hair is long enough, a high pony tail or your hair up will give you extra height. If your hair is short, think of growing them.

These style tips will help you easily reach the goal. You will no longer suffer from short legs. Most importantly, never think you have an ugly figure, erase the opinion fixed in your brain that others do not have to think about their legs, only you are the one to suffer. You are mistaken. Everybody has his problems; they simply do not make their problems publicly known.
