Trick 2: More skin = longer legs

Showing more skin on your foot is a simple way to extend the appearance of your height. The more skin an observing eye notices on your leg, the longer your leg will seem. The longer your leg seems, the taller you look.

Trick 3: Nude or neutral colors are better

Nude color shoe are the best friend of petite girls, as it creates the illusion that our feet/shoe are part of our legs thus make them look longer.

Keeping your shoes and leg coverings in the same color range makes it more difficult for the eye to distinguish where the leg ends and the foot begins, making your leg look longer as a result.

Trick 4: Ditch ankle stripe

Ankle straps cut your leg off with a horizontal line at the top of the foot, reducing the length of your leg as well as the appearance of height.

A hemline that stops at the knee or above it looks flattering on women of short to average height. Showing more leg makes your legs look longer, which maximizes the illusion of height. So, when we are wearing flats in stead of heels, go with mini skirt and you will look much taller.
