How to Look Taller & Slimmer: A Petite Girl’s Guide to Fashion
Belts and shoes
If you like wearing shoes or sandals that buckle at the ankle, make sure the straps match the tone of your skin. When it comes to shoes, clashing colors or bulkiness can make your legs appear much shorter. You should also avoid wide belts. The photo on the left shows a belt creating a visible horizontal line, thus making the torso look wider. Meanwhile, vertical lines (a dress without a belt, lighter-colored shoes) make us noticeably taller and slimmer.
