Opt for A-line skirts that are mid-rise and high rise and don’t go for the length beyond knees as this will defeat all the purpose by hiding most part of your legs.

In dresses, select those with A-line flare and whose lengths are slightly above your knees.

We all love sling bags because they are easy to carry and have enough space to keep our essentials in them. But if you want to look taller then you should keep a check on the length of the sling because if your bag is hanging below the waistline it will make you look shorter.

Contrarily if you hang the sling bag slightly above the waistline, it will accentuate your height.

Furthermore, you can also stick to smaller bags if you are petite because large bags do not suit petite body types.

While platform heels and wedges are comfortable to wear and walk on, they make you look shorter. Hence, on the days you want to look taller, just reserved plain heels.
