How to Make Your Legs Look Longer

It’s all too common now that women are wearing up to 6 inch stilettos to lengthen their legs and sometimes towering over the men.   However, those high heels can cause excruciating foot and back pain.  We’re here to tell you that you don’t need to go to through those extreme measures to get those longer looking stems that you’ve been wanting. We suggest trying our 3 tips below.

1.  Flare or trouser leg pants – Tapered or skinny jeans stop towards your ankle which becomes a main focal point of your legs causing them to appear shorter.  In contrast, flare or trouser leg jeans are wider at the bottom and almost graze the floor.  This not only makes your body appear more proportionate, but they also cover a few more inches of your leg – allowing for a lengthier look.

2.  Nude shoes –  Colorful or dark shoes draw more attention to your feet, which cuts off your legs towards your ankles.  Nude shoes blend into your skin, which draws less attention downward, making your legs look like they go on for days.  (Speaking of shoes, stay away from ankle straps.  They cut you off as well).

3.  Exposed legs – Possibly the easiest way is to show a little skin.  Wear a skirt, dress, or shorts that come at least a little above your knee.  And if your legs are still a bit pasty, smooth a little self tanner on like Jergen’s self tanner for glowing leaner and longer looking legs.
