Leg Lengthening Tricks

Being 5’4″ I would give anything to have a few extra inches especially added to my legs. Obviously I’m not jut going to stretch or grow 3-4 more inches at my age, so here are a few tricks for those of you that are in the same boat as me. We have to use fashion to help us out a little .

1. Wear a Nude Shoe – The closer it is to your skin tone, the harder it is to tell where your leg ends and the shoe starts.

2. High-Waisted Anything – High-waisted shorts or pants makes your waistline appear much higher, which in turn makes your legs look much longer.fp_5338012_ang_lively_blake_0706102Kim-Kardashian-Kris-Humphries-Fashion-Trend-High-Waisted-Pants-092111-21-682x1024

3. Wear Pants & Shoes in the same Hue – This creates one long, unbroken line of color, which gives the illusion of long legs.kate moss 261110Add-a-twist-to-your-all-black-lgn

4. Wide Leg Pants and Wedges – Skim the floor with your hemline and add height with some wedges. Looks fab and it’s different than a pair of skinnies everyday.BG-3TEK_mx

5. Vertical Details on Pants – This draws your eye to lengthening lines.main.original.466x530

6. A Pointy Toe – This elongates your feet, with the added benefits of height from the heel.imagesCelebs in Pointy shoes

My Favorite Spring Booties

This spring I really like the ‘spring boot’ trend. I like the casual, low ankle boot look, whether it’s with jeans, shorts, or ankle length pants.

Some of my favorite examples of this are here:
