I believe any girl has her statement piece of clothes that she believes it makes her look taller. Fancy heels, if nothing else. Well, I have few pieces that make me look way much taller than I really am. And today I’m sharing my #5 tips on how to style currently the most fashionable of them. The wide-leg pants.
THE IT PANTS OF THE SEASON
Although admittedly, only a few months ago I would never put on the wide-leg trousers as the skinny jeans or straight tight pants were my staple, I fall in love with the it pants of the summer. Why? Because I realised I look way much taller in my striped wide-leg pants than in the skinny jeans. That is when I follow all the tips and wear my wide-leg trousers right, of course.
HOW TO LOOK TALLER IN THE WIDE-LEG PANTS
First of all, don’t expect to grow taller the minute you put on your wide-leg pants. As always, there is a hack. You know what I mean. If you style your wide-leg trousers in a wrong way, not taking the advantage of that whisper-light fabric your wide-leg trousers are made of, the wide-leg pants will do nothing but widen your silhouette. And make you look smaller.
Don’t worry, I know just what to do, to make sure this doesn’t happen and you look taller instead. Scroll down to find my #5 tips on how to style the wide-leg pants to look taller.
#5 TIPS TO LOOK TALLER IN WIDE-LEG PANTS
1# GO FOR SOFT-LIGHT FABRICS
Make sure your wide-leg trousers are made of soft and most of all light fabric. Look for trousers made of silk. Real or fake, as long as it doesn’t make any sounds when you walk and gently falls down your silhouette.
2# PINCHED HIGH IN THE WAIST
Never ever get wide-leg trousers with the low waist. Low waist is so 90s. Wide-leg or not, always look for high-waisted trousers.
3# FALL FOR THE PATTERN
Not any kind of the pattern, though. What you need are the vertical lines. Surely, the vertical stripes are not the only option. Dark florals are a good option, too. However, mind the position of the flowers. Be sure to check the wide-leg pants in the galleries to see what I mean.
4# DOUBLE PINCHED OR DOUBLE FLOATS
There are only two kinds of tops that will help you look tall in your wide-leg pants. Either the short ones that finish high in the waist, just above the wide-leg trousers or the ones that fall down your legs and float together with the trousers as you walk.
5# TALLER AND TALLER WE LOOK
I won’t say the only shoes you should be wearing with your wide-leg pants are heels. But they really are. In short, the higher the better. Although, always better safe than sorry. You know what I mean. Walking in wide-leg trousers can be quite challenging, not to say dangerous. And when adding the heels … you know for yourself.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
As said, the best way to look taller in your wide-leg pants is to style them with heels, and long or very short top. I decided to style my striped wide-leg pants (shop here) with a short bomber jacket (find similar here) this time. Unlike once before, remember here, when I styled them with the dark blue trench coat with a ruffled trimming at the bottom, I decided to go for a pinched silhouette this time. I wanted to make my long legs really to pop. Besides the bomber jacket is just perfect for the Friday afternoon in the city, don’t you think?
