We know, we know. It’s a universal truth that every woman wants longer legs. The way you dress also plays a huge role on how you look. Fashion is magic and magic is all about illusions. So thankfully, even if you weren’t as genetically blessed as superstar Alessandra Ambrosio in that department, you can fake long, lean pins with these clever styling tips and tricks below… No crazy, painful surgeries required! The right color and style can make you look taller and thinner and will compliment the workouts you’ve been doing at the gym.
Nude heels – I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but it’s tried and true. A good pair of nudes makes it harder to tell where your legs end and your foot begins. Find one closest to your skin tone for best results. Bonus: a pointed toe also elongates your feet, therefore adding to the illusion of longer legs!

A pair of high-waisted pants, shorts – or pretty much anything high-waisted makes it seem as if your waistline’s higher and therefore, your legs longer. If crop tops aren’t in your alley, tucking in your top will add to a slimmer waist and elongate your body.

Wear something short – it’ll automatically make you look taller with the more leg you expose! Keep it tasteful though of course, but higher hemlines will work in your favor. And if that’s not enough? A good bronzer will do the trick! Focus more on the shins to create a lengthening illusion and add a hint of shimmer to complete the look!
