How to Look Taller in Flats

Flats are cute and comfy shoes that you can walk in all day long. While they obviously have more pros when it comes to mobility, they are usually relegated to the wayside because of one thing: they don’t boost height. Although this holds true, these styling arrangements can make you look taller – even if you are wearing flats.

Be Mindful when Wearing Jeans

When it comes to jeans, the flats you should wear should depend on the style of your trousers. If you are wearing skinny jeans, wear ‘looser’ flats, such as booties, oxfords, and sneakers.

For jeans with roomier ends, wear tight-fitting shoes such as ballerinas and strappy sandals.

Opt for a Short Dress or Skirt

The easiest styling trick that can help you look taller in flats is to wear something short. Whether it’s a short dress or mini skirt, these leg-baring outfits will definitely boost your height. That’s because showing a lot of skin will make you look leggier, and therefore, taller.

For Shorts, Wear a Thicker Sole

Shorts come in different lengths. They can be extra short or extra long (think about clam diggers.) Whatever length you choose, the best flats for such shorts are sneakers or espadrilles. The thicker soles of these flat shoes will create a streamlined and structured look.

For Maxis, Wear Sandals

Maxi dresses and skirts are super fun, and even if they cover your legs, you can still look taller in it. In order to appear lengthier in these clothes, do wear flat sandals. Avoid wearing closed flat shoes for these attires as they can make you look shorter.

For Wide-Legged Pants, Match the Color

Because of the baggy ends of the wide-legged pants, they usually look better with high heels. But if are not able to walk in high heels all day, you can still wear flats with your wide-legged pants. The key to looking taller in these is to wear flats near the color of your pants. The continuity of the hues will make your legs look longer.
