Her style philosophy is less is more and she’s a fan of neutral colors, loose shapes, and sexy heels. So, keep on reading for the 4 ways to flatter your long lean legs with Nika.
- Get a stylish and functional look with tall boots or nude gladiators.
If you wish to highlight your long legs this colder season, opt for a pair of tall boots. Like Nika, think of wearing a pair of boots that matches the shade of your trousers to elongate your leg line. If it’s still hot outside, going for a pair of nude gladiators can be great to look a bit carefree, trendy, and at the same time weather-appropriate. Lace-up styles tend to chop your legs, therefore making you look shorter, but nude styles will just blend into your skin making you look leaner and taller.
- Embrace miniskirts or shorts in a heavier fabric.
Fall season doesn’t mean you have to forgo your miniskirts and shorts, as some of them can still be appropriate in the colder months, especially denim, suede, and leather that will give you more warmth over lightweight fabrics. Like Nika, you may still go for a silk tank top, but pair it with a leather miniskirt and a lightweight coat. Or, go casual cool with a cottony tee paired with button-front denim skirt that scream retro. If you wish to wear your short summer dresses or lace rompers in the fall season, top it with a fall coat like Nika did, as well as pair it with grunge boots that look edgy and urban.
- Resort to a pair of skinny jeans over boyfriend and flared ones.
If you’re aiming for a sexy look, and wish to flatter your long lean legs, opt for skinny jeans and skip those boyfriend, flared, and cropped styles that will only shorten your frame. Like Nika, you may go for a monochromatic outfit and top it with a camel coat that looks season appropriate so you’ll look more slimmer in black, while elongating your leg line. If you wish to wear loose coats, going for a pair of skinny jeans will balance your frame while giving you more insulation than a pair of leggings or tights.
- Opt for maxi length on dresses and skirts.
Midi skirts might be trendy, but it can only cut your leg line, therefore shorten your frame. If you’re not a fan of sexy miniskirts that reveal your bare legs, resort to maxi dresses or maxi skirts that will flatter your long legs without showing some skin. Or, think of a maxi outfit with a high-slit to let some part of your legs peek through while looking demure on your fall style. Indeed, fall season is the perfect time to flaunt your assets in a stylish and strategic ways.
