Mind behind the Mind Body Swag blog, Lisa Cahue worked in the fashion closet at Harper’s Bazaar as well as being an assistant buyer at Scoop New York City. When she realized that behind the scenes was not her passion, she made the decision to fully commit herself in the professional world of modeling and is now represented by Elite Model Management. Since she’s a seasoned fit model and works for many designers, keep on reading for her stylish tricks on how to flatter your long lean legs.
Get a flattering pair of shoes that serve your purpose.
Though nude heels are encouraged to elongate every woman’s legs, you don’t have to think of it since you’re naturally blessed. Think of ballerina flats, round toe shoes, and strappy sandals that can be comfortable for walking and will balance your big feet. Also, gladiator sandals and ankle straps will be great to balance your long legs as they tend to divide your leg up while mid-calf boots can be great to look casual cool. Even if your legs are over a meter long, you still have the right to wear heels, especially if you have thick calves or ankles.
Make your long legs look more balanced with roomy trousers and maxi dresses.
If you’re trendy and fashion-forward, oversized trend, midi length trend, and billowy trousers trend will look perfect for you. Small frames tend to drown in oversized jeans and boxy culottes, but with your giraffe legs, they fit you like a glove. You obviously don’t need to wear them with heels, though you may if you love to. Like Lisa, go for a pair of architectural pants, cropped pants, or culottes that can balance your mile long legs, making them look more proportioned for your frame.
Highlight your long legs in fitted trousers.
Skinny jeans are perfect for your long lean legs, if you wish to flaunt them in a non-obvious way. Like Lisa, simply slip into a very casual, simple shirt dress over jeans or leggings. Very rock chic, they’re great for fans of the all black look. If you wish to wear short skirts but don’t want to steal unwanted attention, slip into a pair of leggings that’s extremely comfortable that can add a touch of modesty to less-than-modest skirts. High-waist cigarette pants can also work, but it will make your legs look longer.
Dare to bare your long legs in shorts and miniskirts.
If your hips are on the large side, choose short shorts to emphasize the length of your legs. If your hips are tiny, go instead for trousers that end midway up the calf and wear with boots. Like Lisa, go for boxer style of shorts that will go well with your chic tops and sexy heels, or opt for cut-off shorts teamed with gladiators that look sexy and trendy at the same time. Indeed, flaunting your assets is a great way of looking your best.
