Not everyone was born with legs like a supermodel. Many people are worried that certain styles would not fit them, or they may look short in pictures or reality. Fortunately, fashion can fix that. There are outfits that will instantly make your lower half appear longer, slimmer, and sexier.
The obvious way to make your legs seem longer is to wear shoes that add inches to your height. High heels will also force your feet to extend, which makes your calves look longer and more shapely.
Shoes the same colour as your trousers or stockings
Create an uninterrupted line by wearing shoes the same colour as your trousers or tights. For example, wear black skinny jeans with black heeled boots. This monochromatic look creates a clean line as the eye travels from the top of your leg straight down to the floor without stopping. It applies to just about any shade, particularly darker colours.
Nude shoes are your best friend. Wear shoes with a colour close to your skin tone. A shoe that blends in with your skin will create a long, uninterrupted line when you’re wearing skirts or shorts. Both the solid colour and added length from your feet will create the illusion of longer legs.
Pointed toe shoes extend your feet and your legs. Shoes with pointed toes typically have at least an inch or two of extra space making them physically longer than a round-toe shoe in the same size. The tapering point also creates the illusion that your feet and legs look even longer. Stick to slick, pointy shoes for a more flattering, stylish look.
Avoid ankle straps
