Wouldn't we all love to have long and sexy legs? However, most of us don't have model-long legs and are really just average when it comes to height. With average legs how can we get that long legs look we want? Really all you have to do is create an optical illusion with your clothes to elongate your legs and also make yourself look taller.
Something to consider when shopping for clothes is to look for clothes that have vertical lines on them; that will succeed in elongating your legs making you look a bit taller. Suits with pinstripes or even just a blouse with vertical piping or pinstripes will work great to make your legs appear longer. Conversely steer clear of clothing with horizontal lines; you want people's eyes to go up and down rather than back and forth. The best kind of line to create when dealing with your legs is an asymmetrical line. This will do wonders for you when you're trying to make your legs look longer.
Wearing longer pants is also a good way to make your legs look longer. Don't wear pants that don't fit but rather wear flattering pants that visually elongate your legs; boot cut pants are great for this, especially if you wear them with a high heel. Your legs will most definitely "grow"! One of the things to remember with shorter legs is not necessarily do you need to make your legs look longer, but rather don't accentuate your already shorter legs. Don't wear skirts with a second hem, pants that are tight at the top (that will only draw attention to where your leg begins, emphasizing its shortness), and keep a good line of color flowing (the line of color will elongate your body).
Something else that goes into this longer legs look is how you carry yourself. If you have good posture and carry yourself with confidence your legs may not necessarily appear longer, but it will succeed in taking the focus away from the lack of length in your legs. One thing about legs is that it's hard to really alter them, but you can become adept at creating optical illusions! Appearances and poise are the keys to making your legs longer and taking the emphasis away from the shortness of your legs.
